A post I wish I never had to write.

lafolie_00000

Last week something really upsetting happened and I feel the need to share it with you because it will reflect on the way I’ll face this blog in the future.

It all started Thursday morning when I was notified by WordPress that someone had reblogged my “I (heart) Marcel Marlier” post from last year tribute series.

It seemed like a good thing, and my first reaction was to think “oh someone must have liked it, cool”. WordPress even congratulates you when something like this happens so it’s only natural that one gets excited about it… I was dead wrong! I took a look on the said blog on my phone and it seemed normal. I thought it was some sort of kids style blog, I confess I did not scroll much down and the words that accompanied the reblog of my post were apparently innocent. The author of said blog even left a comment on my post saying he had reblogged it.

The day started and I could not mind that issue any longer so I went on with regular life as usual.

Later that day I went back to the site, I had a few minutes and decided to give another look on it. I was doing this on my phone so not fully seeing all the blog information. This was the text that accompanied the reblog “I was putting together a post on the original Martine illustrations, and kept coming across modern little girls in lovely outfits inspired by the series: this a particularly pretty example by Ines. Now I’d like to put together a post of all the lovely styles that the whole group made individually: a great tribute to Marcel Marlier…”

Seems pretty harmless… Right? I started scrolling down and the gallery of little girls images started to bother me. At that point I wasn’t even reading the text I was just looking at regular photos of little girls but I started feeling anxious. Gut feeling you know?

I decided to ask a few friends their opinion. Some of them were at the computer and started telling me that the site felt weird to them to, and we quickly got to the conclusion that it wasn’t an innocent blog at all. It had all the appearance of a camouflaged child abuse site. On the side bar the author announced they had moved some content to their mature blog. A few of us clicked trough (at this point I was already on my computer) and it was pornographic content; I only saw the first photos and they were not of small kids but probably underaged. I have no words to describe what I felt in that moment.

I asked WordPress support how to act and they advised me on how to report it; they shut the blog down really quickly. I also immediately hidden all the posts containing my girls photos and wrote an email to inform all the Marcel Marlier series participants of what was happening.

And that was it. Photos of my sweet innocent daughter were now at the hands of sick people who will use them for their own depraved ends… I can’t get pass this. I thought I could, I even said I could a few hours later. But it’s not something I can forget that easily. Don’t get me wrong, it’s the internet we all know that these things happen. We just hope they won’t happen to us, or we try not to dwell on that.

I’ll be totally honest, my position regarding sharing photos of my kids online was always a bit arrogant. I used to think that this would not bother me, that it was an abstract concept and that people were overzealous and paranoid.

When something like this happens you loose your ground. It’s not an abstract concept anymore, it’s the certain that a few depraved minds will be using my girls photos…

This left me with lots and lots of questions, and for most of them I have absolutely no definitive answer. I’ve been putting a lot of thought into this subject and I hope that someday I can return to some kind of balance. By no means I’m sharing my thoughts in a judgmental way. I think this is a very personal matter and I’m sharing my current view on the subject because it’s kind of cathartic and because it may help some that have similar questions. I could never judge anyone for parenting differently, it’s definitely one of the most challenging parts of life and we all learn, evolve and adjust has we go…

Have I failed has a parent by allowing such thing to happen? At this point I can only think I did, that I left my kids vulnerable, that I disrespected their privacy and that I failed to protect them.

Do I have the right to share my kids photos online without their informed consent, while they don’t have the ability to understand all the nuances of sharing things online? Do I have rights over their image? My daughters aren’t mine, they’re individuals of their own; I may have brought them to this world but I want them to make their own choices and live their life under what they believe. When I discuss certain issues with Madalena, like religion for instance, I always make clear that it is my point of view, that she’s entitled to feel and think differently. Why would I try to empower them to be able to make their own decisions and then make this particular choice for them?

You’d say that parenting has its share of decision making for them, and we make those decisions in hope that is the best for them; but my question is: does that apply here? Does that apply to sharing their life? Again no judging just trying to figure out my own way…

Some of you may think that a blog like La Folie is somewhat an act of futility. And that I only do it for my personal gratification. I don’t feel it that way, for me it was/is an amazing opportunity to get in touch with a wonderful community. People who share enthusiasm by the same things. When I’m making a post I’m not excited to share it because people will eventually say good things about my makings, not saying I don’t appreciate the love, I really do, every comment puts a smile on my heart and lets face it feeds the ego too; but in the end I’m sharing because I hope eventually someone will feel inspired in trying the pattern, the fabric, a detail… That from what I made someone might be inspired to create. Because that’s how I look to all the makings of the sewing enthusiasts that cross my path, they are inspiration. So you see I don’t feel I put my daughters at risk under a futile premise, all the things I shared came from a place of joy, of belief in humanity, and even of celebration of their personalities now and then. But now this happened and I’m not sure I can keep to expose them in the same way.

I’m still trying to decide my new path. Maybe I’ll keep the blog only to share the things I make for myself and share the rest only on social media? (Is sharing on IG any different or safer than the blog? Not sure yet…) Not showing the kids face may give a somewhat bigger sense of security, but some of the photos I saw on the infamous blog were just of girls legs… Seriously there are no words…

One of the few things I’ve decided already was to remove the privacy setting on most of the olds posts I’ve hidden last week. I haven’t done it yet but I will when I’m ready. It’s pointless. If you make a Google search on La Folie you’ll be able to see all the photos anyway so I won’t dwell on that. I’ll probably never remove it from Marcel Marlier post though…

I want to share that I’ve leaned that the word Copine (which was present on the abusive blog name) refers to a scale that classifies images considered child abuse, you can read more about it here, and if you ever cross path with something referring to it please investigate to ensure its not abusive content. Not knowing made me look at the blog name has something totally inoffensive.

We are facing unknown charts here, and at this point I can’t keep myself from asking if our online lives will have a negative impact on our kids lives? Will it influence their journey? I want to believe that there’s more good than bad, but let me tell you the bad really sucks…

Not sure if any of you was able to stick with me trough this super lengthy and inconclusive post but I had to write it. These issues will dwell on my mind for a long time. And if you feel like sharing your own thoughts please do, I’m sure they will be helpful for me and for all the parents that have concerns about these matters.

Lastly I want to reaffirm that at no point my thoughts and doubts have a judgmental side, we all try our best…

Hugs.

  1. Dear Ines,
    You and I are complete strangers. You have been creative and courageous enough to put yourself out there into the public sphere to share what you love. In our one sided relationship of blogger and reader I have delighted in seeing what you have created and how your creations enhance and highlight the personalities of your children. I have been inspired by you. I’ve been inspired by the love you so clearly have for your children, that you have translated into tangible objects to wrap them up in, adorn them, and delight them. I have made things you’ve shared to brighten my own childrens’ days and to express my own love and delight in them. As a mother my heart aches for you. After reading this post I just wanted to reach out to you in turn and say thank you for all that you’ve already given and thank you for wherever you decide to go with your blog in future. There are no easy answers or ways forward from this but my heart is with you all the same.
    Amy

    • Oh Amy, your words are so kind, Thank you. It sure means the world to me right now to know that someone really felt inspired by what I’ve shared; ❤ no matter what is my path in the future knowing there are people "with me" turns it much easier. Thanks for reaching out, it made my heart a bit brighter and definitely brought me some comfort. ❤

  2. Oh no! Im so sorry you’ve had to write this post. I have my own blog, and even though I dont post faces, this has really got me thinking. I dont really have any advice, as you say, even not posting faces wont help when they’ve got pictures of legs! There really are no words! Overall our childrens saftey and right to not have their pictures abused by such people is paramount. I will be thinking twice about how I photograph, and what I upload onto my blog.
    Im so sorry this has happened!

    • Thank you for your words Jessica. I really wanted to share my experience because sometimes things only get real for us when they happen to someone we “know”. And maybe this can help other parents to be more confident on their attitude in these matters, whatever their position is. It’s not an abstract concept, it happens but that doesn’t mean we should live in fear, it just means we have to be less lighthearted (has I was) when facing certain decisions of our online lives. It’s definitely an open subject to me and I still have a long way ahead… But knowing there are people sharing my concerns really helps, so once again thank you. ❤

  3. My dear friend,
    I’m so, so, so sorry that this happend to you and your kids. The interent for us is mostly just such a wonderful place where we get to know each other, find inspiration, make friends (and feed our ego). However, yes there is this bad part of it that drives all of us nuts. It’s like this perfect place for crazy people. When I started blogging some years ago, I talked to a friend and she told me that on another blog she had read that that blogger was on a kind of conference. There a police man showed them photographs that they had taken in some houses of pedophiles. They had pictures of girls and boys and not just naked boys and girls, but basically just beautiful kids.
    When she told me about this, I decided to just go with “headless” or “faceless” kid pics. You are right. It’s not 100% safety, but at least it’s not as exciting for those people. Your comment about the legs, however, makes me re-think a little bit. I might have to be even more careful. I’m always a little bit sorry, that i cannot share the whole cuteness of my kids and feel a little bit left out when I see the pics or videos of other kids on my friend’s blogs. It’s almost impossible to let a garment shine when you don’t show the cute kids in it. Plus I would love to show some of the personality of my kids, but again this is almost impossible without showing faces. However, for me this is the right middle way. No 100% security, but for me the better way.
    I hope that you’ll find a way to deal with this. I’m sending you so many hugs!

  4. Thank-you for sharing. I hear your pain, upset & I feel outraged. There are no easy answers. In the end we all have to do what’s right for us. I stopped blogging about my girls a while ago. It was for different reasons, they weren’t cooperative models, but I also had this issue in the back of my mind. Hold them tight, keep them close & look after yourself. A x

    • Thank you Anna for taking the time to leave me your words. I firmly believe that each of us must act in accordance to what feels right to us, there is no absolute right or wrong in these matters. And my daughters usually don’t love much to be photographed either so that is another thing weighing on my heart… But I’m sure that in time I’ll find my own way.

  5. Thank you so much for sharing this Ines. I was so shocked when I realized our series had been abused for such horrible ends. And I have been struggling with questions about the ethical aspects of sharing my children’s lives online for a long time now (and still haven’t found an answer).

    As you have by now read in my email, I have decided to erase all my references to Marcel Marlier, because I feel that there is a link between the topic of the series and what happened last week. I have also created a FB group to discuss ethical issues regarding blogging about our children. I think it is important to keep discussing this topic between (sewing) bloggers.

    xo

    • Thank you An for all you’ve done today. I’m really sorry that some people are so sick to completely profane the innocence and joy in which we took part on Marcel Marlier tribute. I really think we all should put some more thought into this, though I’m sure there is no absolute right answer…

  6. Eu já passei por isto há alguns anos. Não encontrei fotos do meu blog em sites desses mas apercebi-me de que isso era real e que não e só aos outros que acontece. Houve uma vez uma agente da polícia que me deixou um comentário no blog avisando para ter cuidado que essas “pessoas” aproveitam o conteúdo de blogs exactamente como os nossos. Desde então que penso sempre muitas vezes antes de publicar uma foto de um filho meu (ou de terceiros) e é cada vez mais raro fazê-lo. Fotos de praia, nem pensar!
    Custa muito, é um murro no estômago, mas ainda bem que agora o sabes… infelizmente é a realidade. Mas a realidade está também lá fora, onde os nossos filhos brincam e facilmente são fotografados por estranhos…
    Um abraço e força!

    • Obrigada Virgínia por partilhares a tua experiência. É realmente algo que sempre quis deixar para segundo plano por me dar tanto gozo partilhar aquilo que andava a fazer. Agora já não posso varrer para baixo do tapete… Quanto à realidade lá fora, é algo que não posso controlar e sobre o qual não tenho escolha. Mas aqui no mundo virtual a escolha é minha e honestamente neste momento só consigo pensar que as minhas filhas não beneficiam nada com isso.

  7. Inês my friend, this is such a great post. Very well written and I clearly feel your pain! I have been like you before this happened and knew it was a risk but like you said, it felt sort of abstract and I must admit I was surprised at how horrified I felt when it actually happened (to you). Again, I’m SO sorry you are going through this ❤
    I want to put another perspective out there which my head sort of believes in (but I'm still working on getting my nerves, heart and stomach to follow along). I think we can all agree that a lot of us have benefitted from this community of sewing bloggers so to let sick people ruin that for us, is a little bit like saying we should not go to soccer games and concerts anymore because there are risk of terror attacks. BUT like I said, this is mostly on a theoretical level for me at the moment, ugh.
    Big giant hugs and kisses to you!

  8. It’s such a terrible thing and, you’re totally right, it can actually happen to any of us.
    I don’t show my kids face, don’t use #s and still I went through a very similar situation some time ago (I didn’t dig as further as you did, probably because part of me didn’t want it to be true. If that makes any sense …) and I still block “weird” comments and followers every now and then.
    While I love blogging (and obviously love to see what everyone else is sharing and making) so much, I keep going without allowing myself a moment of reflection.
    Still, and although I believe the sewing community is full of wonderful and generous people (and I’ve honestly learned so much from them all), I don’t think it’s fair (at least for me and in respect of their own privacy) to keep posting my kids pics (even with their “head cut”). I’m rethinking the way I post as well. Not from fear but because I feel the need to act in order to protect the ones I love the most ❤
    Thank you again so much for the shout-out.

    • Thank you for your support my dear. This isn’t a linear subject and we all should act under what we believe is right. I really don’t think there is one definite way to deal with the social media exposure. I’m not even sure how I’ll be dealing with it but I do hope you keep sharing your creations because they are absolute perfection and they always inspire me to do better. ❤

  9. Lamento muito Inês! Que mundo este! Eu sou das que tem muitos problemas em partilhar as fotos dos meus filhos. Sou das que se refugiam nas caras tapadas… Mas é como dizes: as caras tapadas não impedem que mentes doentes se “divirtam” com as suas fotos. Este post deixou-me a pensar. Os filhos não são nossos. Até que ponto devíamos expor a sua imagem nesta internet? Todos sabemos dos perigos da internet mas como não temos a mesma mente perversa de alguns, há alguns pormenores que nos escapam. Somos um pouco ingénuos. Nunca me passou pela cabeça que blogues como o teu (posso tratar-te por tu?) pudessem chamar a atenção deste tipo de gente. Lamento mesmo muito Inês. Obrigada pela partilha. Beijinhos.

    • Obrigada pelas tuas palavras Paula. Não tenho dúvidas que ficamos mais vulneráveis quando nos expomos online. Mas também não sei até que ponto devemos fechar-nos sobre nós próprios consumidos pelo medo. A partilha das coisas que fiz para as minhas filhas trouxe muito mais coisas positivas do que negativas, embora o negativo neste momento pareça overwhelming. Ainda não sei que caminho seguir. Mas eu estou convicta que o meu blog só chamou a atenção de pervertidos por causa do post da Anita, tenho a certeza que as ilustrações do Marcel Marlier fazem mesmo o género desse tipo de mentes… Não acho de todo que este tipo de pessoas encontrem facilmente os nossos blogues; mas não podemos deixar de reconhecer que não há forma de controlar a informação uma vez que ela esteja online. Enfim, escolhas difíceis deste novo século. Beijinhos – e sim claro que me podes tratar por tu 😉

  10. I have given this topic a lot of thought as well. I told you that I stopped hosting my photos to Flickr because of this issue, so I definitely take it seriously.

    Regarding my blog, I try to maintain my kids’ privacy by posting modest photos of my children as well as not disclosing personal issues that they may be struggling with. I chose to stop sharing issues related to our adoption, as well as any issues that my kids may be experiencing. I totally disagree with the “be authentic” movement which advocates sharing personal details to strangers. Those stories of my kids’ struggles and fears are theirs alone. They are personal and are not for strangers.

    I personally do not care for headless shots. To me, it feels almost like using kids to show a garment. I don’t mean that as an inflammatory statement at all and I don’t think that’s what people are doing. I don’t judge people who do it, but it feels wrong to me.

    I view my photography as a form of art (I hope that doesn’t sound melodramatic). I am always pushing myself to capture my children as they really are through my photoshoots and I aim to do so much more than show a garment but to capture their essence in these photos. I love that my sewing forces me to get out my DSLR and take portraits of my kids each week. These are photos that I cherish and that my kids cherish. My kids read my blog every single day and they view it as an absolute treasure. I love to view the work of other photographers and am glad they share their photos. It inspires me!

    One thing that helped me, and I don’t mean this in a church-y way at all, but Christ spoke to this issue of the objectification of women using hyperbole, saying, “If your eye causes you to lust, pluck it out.” The blame was not placed on the way the woman was dressed, but on the man’s heart and desires. I feel the same way – that if I am showing photos of my children that are wholesome, then the problem is not my photos but the creepy dude’s perversion, which is why I aggressively block these people.

    Also, from my experience on Flickr, I wonder how much of it is actually creepy dudes or if it’s trolls just trying to create fear and panic?

    My husband and I give thousands of dollars every year to fight trafficking through an organization called Love 146. So this is definitely an issue that we take seriously. It was a motivation for us to consider adoption as well, since many many orphans will fall into/be victims trafficking. So yes, we take this extremely seriously! And yet I don’t feel that sharing wholesome photos of my children is contributing to that problem. I have been so inspired by people sharing their photos of sewing (so important to see fit), adoption stories, and homeschooling and it has made me a better person and changed the trajectory of my life. (No understatement!) I feel it spreads far more good than harm and would be giving more power to evil to shut it down.

    This all said, I respect that opinions on this will fall all over the spectrum and that we all need to follow our hearts. ❤

    • Sweet Rachel, thank you so much for taking the time to express your view. I believe a blog like yours is an inspiration. I love your photography and I truly believe that when you see the photos has a part of your family memory construction (if that makes sense, like an album of memories, capturing their essence goes way beyond showing a garment) it makes total sense. What I’m questioning right now is that my photos (I’m totally referring to personal experience here) aren’t really good, they aren’t art and most times my girls aren’t really up to take them, so are they absolutely needed? I’m not ready to answer that question yet. I totally agree that the one to blame is the creepy dude here, but the guilt ride at this point is almost unavoidable has much has I try to think otherwise… I don’t want to ride the panic wave but it’s hard for now. I want to believe that it does more good too and in time I will again. Anyway I’m still super confused and can’t really have a rational discussion on this subject yet… Thank you for being here ❤

  11. Dear Inês. I’m truly sorry that this horrible thing happened to you. My heart and soul ache knowing that you are going through this. You are such a warm person and so creative, it would be imposible not to feel inspired by your creations. I love your post, the way you open your heart to talk about a very sensitive theme. This can happen to anyone…and you are right, when is knocking to your door (or in this case my friend’s door) gives you a reality check of the sickness surrounding earth.
    I don’t show the faces of my kids because I’m so paranoid of people take them, among other reasons, but after what happen to you it is clear that posts including my kids are not going to happen again even with heads off the picture (the sewing will continue, but I’m thinking a different way to show it online)
    How Annika said I always think I’m missing a bit of the wagon not showing my kids faces, because you could show a bit more of their personalities and in certain level will give more life to the dress or shirt or whatever you are showing, but I personally (this is without judging anyone) think my priority is to do my best to protect them and in the back of my mind there is always that thought of how freely the information navigates the internet. Once on the net, it is out of our reach and belongs to anyone that will want to take it. I started my blog for the same reasons you did and hurts to think that for those few horrible people I would be less willing to share.
    About secure things for the net: careful with the # (even in Instagram, when you used them, always check what kind of pictures are posted there), erase properties from the pictures (sometimes the pictures have attached geographic coordinates, this is sure to happen when you take pictures with your phone and you have GPS activated)
    Big love to you and trust in your guts always, you will know what to do and will find that answer.

    • Thank you for everything you did Maria. This is definitely a very personal decision. At this point when I’m still allowing the guilt to consume me a little I can’t really see other way but not to share. But quite honestly I do not think its all bad. When you don’t show your kids faces you’re already protecting them. I do hope you keep sharing your creations because they are beautiful and inspiring. ❤

  12. You know I wish you never had to write this post as well but no matter what, you did nothing wrong. Don’t blame yourself and please don’t stop sharing your creations because they are so inspiring, even if for that you decide to just hang them.
    Hope you will find a way to deal with this situation ❤

  13. Hi Ines,
    Unfortunately things like this happen through all internet, this is not one exclusive thing of your blog.
    Every day that we connect our personal computer to the internet we are exposed.
    The problem is not what we put on line, the problem is what others do with it.
    Of course we can reduce these things to a minimum, but is it correct to change the way we do things because there are certain individuals that turn our things into other meanings?
    Let me tell you once again that your are a great MOTHER!!!!
    And my girls are very lucky on having you as their own!
    What we do is our responsibility, what others do with our things is their´s!
    I know you well enough to know that you will be thinking about this for long time, i will also, but don´t let minor persons destroy your work and passion!!!!
    There is nothing that worries me more than the world outside for my girls, but is the world that they will have to face, eventually without me and you.
    I know that you do all every day to give them the best in the world, i know that you love them more than yourself and that you do everything to protect them
    I love you very very much.
    We should do whatever makes you happier, if we can!!!!
    Remember? You told me that same time ago…
    Love you
    PS: don´t stop

  14. Lamento imenso que isto tenha acontecido – sigo o teu blog há pouco tempo mas faço-o porque é de facto inspirador! Desde que comecei a seguir o teu blog (e o de outras bloggers portuguesas) que tenho tido mais ideias, vontade e inspiração para me aventurar na costura. Por isso acho que a partilha que fazes vem de facto de um sítio bom, e isso, espero que não mude!
    Quanto ao partilhar o quê dos nossos filhos on-line, é uma discussão tão complexa e cheia de contradições, que talvez não tenha uma conclusão. Por exemplo, eu não me sinto à vontade para partilhar imagens dos meus filhos on lime; mas sigo muitos blogs, mesmo não temáticos, em que as fotografias dos filhos são habituais, fazem parte, e onde vi os miúdos crescerem. Também acho que as crianças têm direito à sua privacidade, mas já partilhei algumas das “tiradas” que o meu filho mais velho diz – e as palavras também deixam rasto na net (mesmo que não os ponham em perigo…)
    E quanto a mostrares o que fazes para as tuas filhas, como inspiração para a sewing community (ou para as que, como eu, só têm rapazes e para quem os vestidos são miragens para bonecas 😉 podes sempre usar uma cruzeta e uma parede branca 🙂

    • Obrigada pelas tuas palavras Teresa. O meu coração fica definitivamente menos “escuro” sempre que alguém partilha comigo que realmente se inspirou no que faço e que a minha partilha não é um acto vazio de significado. Este não é um assunto linear, e eu não sei ainda que caminho vou seguir mas fico muito agradecida por todas as sugestões e apoio que estão a partilhar comigo. ❤

  15. I discovered your blog just today and the first post I read is this one. I don’t usually comment, but I would like to say that – in my opinion – you have done absolutely nothing wrong in posting pictures of your children on the internet. If I had smaller children, I would do the same, simply because it would never occur to me that there would be people out there who use these pictures of a sewing blog in such a way. You didn’t do anything wrong, it is the people using your pictures for these purposes that are in the wrong… But I do understand your doubt and your guilt. It is not easy to get over this kind of thing. And I am sure that as a mother you will probably never forget this and that it will take a long time to get over this, and probably often doubt your decision to post pictures of your children on the internet. But please don’t be too hard on yourself.
    The sad thing is that there isn’t much we can do to stop this kind of behavior completely except to report it, and let other people know what is happening and hope to shut this down, one page at a time… This kind of behavior has always been around, except these people have changed their territory from the playground to the internet… As parents, we never want our children to hurt, and we want to protect them from every evil there is in this world and when we fail that objective, it is hard to accept this, even if we did nothing wrong. So please be kind on yourself, and know that whatever decision you make regarding the future of your blog, will be the right decision!

    • Wendy thank you so much for taking the time to share with me your thoughts. I’m so sorry this is the first post you read on my blog because it’s usually much more fun to read it, or at least I like to think so 🙂 this isn’t an easy topic at all, I’m not sure on my future path and I can’t avoid the guilt trip for now. But I want to believe that this will not completely block my inspiration to create… Anyway thank you once again for your support. ❤

  16. Olá Inês, só hoje é que li este post, apesar de já ter sabido deste assunto através do Instagram.
    Queria dizer-te que és uma mãe corajosa por vires falar deste tópico, mostras o teu amor e transmites às tuas filhas ( um dia que leiam ) a fibra de que és feita. Todas as mães vacilam ou pensam e repensam alguns assuntos ao longo da vida, e para quem partilha online um pouco das suas vidas, este é certamente um desses assuntos.
    Por mim, optei por pensar que cada vez que publico uma fotografia dos meus filhos, é como se tivesse saído numa revista ou jornal, publicações em que apenas posso controlar a decisão de participarem, ou não. A partir do momento em que está publicado, o alcance que tem foge de mim, não posso controlar, e o melhor é nem pensar muito nisso.
    Espero que continues a sentir alegria nas tuas criações e a partilhá-las connosco, seja como for que decidas, juntamente com o teu bom humor. Um beijinho grande.

    • Muito obrigada pelas tuas palavras Paula. Ainda não sei como avançar e seguir em frente mas a bondade que tenho sentido por parte da nossa comunidade (se é que lhe posso chamar a sim) é verdadeiramente inspiradora e torna o meu caminho um pouco mais fácil. ❤

Let me know what you think...
