Lisa Shulman, circa 1988. A dark haired teenage girl in a homecoming dress. (I am unsure what credit to give this photo where it came from, or how I came to have it.)

Family: D and one of my sons are shown walking down a country road hand-in-hand. They are viewed from behind, D is traveling with his power chair and my three-year-old son is walking beside him while pointing something out. The road is flanked by a forested area.
On the left, my husband, Nik (who is really, legit, totally blind) and his golden retriever guide dog. On the right, I (the fake blind one!) stand next to him with my yellow labrador guide dog at a cocktail party.
