I have posted two new photo ACEO's and each one has a special meaning.
When Cole was born 18 years ago I purchased this angel for his very first Christmas. We have always called her Cole's Angel. When I opened an account on Ebay way back in 2001 I called myself NoahsarkColesangel. I hope to give this to Cole when he has his own children.
This photo was not taken by me. Back in 1996 I met a young man named Alan. He was an art student at William Paterson College and my adopted daughter Kerry was also an art student and she met him there. I had the opportunity to have a conversation with him when he told me that he was looking for his biological mother. He gave me a little information and after some phone calls I was able to find her since she lived in this area. They met and became friends. It was miraculous because he said that he had a memory of being torn away from her and that was what happened. His adopted family were very warm and loving people also.
He gave me this photo in an 8x10 size which was actually a school project.
When he graduated his parents gave him a new car as a gift. A sports car. He took full advantage of that car for its speed and he was killed in a very tragic accident. He was a beautiful person and I am posting this in his honor. He had a very bright future that was cut short because of that love for speed. I will always remember our talks.
So those are the stories behind these photographs and I would love to know if knowing the stories would make them more meaningful or if posting them as is with no background is the way to go.
