As the year is coming fast to an end, I am starting to think about next year and how that is going to look for me and my family. Next year, I will have a son who will be in his final year of high school and another about to enter high school. We will have one additional driver. Addy will go to Kindergarten and we will be spending the summer in Germany. I am hoping the upcoming year will bring some answers in regards to my health, and I am hoping to find myself more in the gym and outside shooting (photography) families.
Here are some things that I am currently reflecting upon: Did you know that China has done away with the Open Child policy. How will this affect china? Will couples go rush to have more children or will nothing really change. My suspicion is not much will really change as the change comes just a little too late. Why? Children produced from the one child law are now responsible for taking care of their elderly parents and therefore even if they wanted to have more children couples can't afford too. Less marriageable couples due to the surplus in males and lack of woman. Last but not least, while china has said yes the years of being told no is ingrained in the people. Couples will not want the extra demand on their time and careers. As it stands, many of China's children are being raised by their grandparents.
I am also thinking about this article I read. I can't imagine the pain these woman suffered in the practice of foot binding. I wonder if Avery's grandmother had her feet bound.
I am loving this music video at the moment.
I am looking forward to watching this movie! I adore Irish accents.
Last but not least, I can't ignore the migrant crisis. Do we take our freedoms for granted? Check this article out.
