Juntas há 15 anos, Claudiana e Luciana sonhavam em ter um filho desde que se conheceram. Tentaram fazer fertilizações que não deram certo, daí entraram na fila para adoção e esperaram… esperaram muuuuuito. Desde que conheceram Lucas até a finalização do processo de adoção, foram dois anos de muita conversa, paciência e construção de intimidade.
Ao verem ele decidiram imediatamente que era aquela criança que seria adotada. Quando se aproximaram do menino, ele se sentiu seguro e chamou elas para brincar. Um sinal daqueles, né?!
O pequeno foi muito bem acolhido e virou o xodó da família, especialmente da vovó, Dona Zilda. “Não tem explicação, não desgruda. Acorda falando da vovó Zizi, às vezes a gente brinca que adotamos ele da avó porque o amor desses dois é imenso”.
Lucas tem sete anos, é deficiente visual e autista, elas que sempre tiveram que batalhar para serem incluídas. Hoje, a luta é pela inclusão dele.
Para as mães do pequeno, o autismo é um ‘aprendizado eterno’, e isso, no final das contas, é algo positivo.
“Cada dia você vê uma coisa diferente e você vai aprendendo para o seu filho mesmo, porque é aprendizado para sempre”.
“Antes eramos um casal, hoje somos uma família. Parece que ele está com a gente desde o nascimento, nem lembro da vida antes dele”, contam. ❤

By far the most incredible experience I have had was hiking these monster glaciers in Iceland!! 😦🙌
It’s both scary and sad to think that one day these incredible places may not exist!
This draws to a close the series from the 2006 expedition to the Nakanai mountains in Papua New Guinea. And what an expedition it had been! Pictured here is the Tavurvur volcano at sunrise which we caught sight of at the end of 12+ hour boat ride around the southern tip of island of New Britain. The time on the boat was the final stage of an amazing three month long journey. To date, this remains the longest expedition I’ve ever been on and by far the most wild and extreme. Huge thanks to all the team who participated and to Dave Gill, our intrepid leader who organised it all. #explore #PapuaNewGuinea #NewBritain #Tavurvur #volcano #Tavurvurvolcano #expedition @NatGeo @insidenatgeo @natgeointhefield @eastnewbritaintourism
Revisiting an image from awhile back. Although this location has been shot to death, I’ll stop by every now and then to say hi.
3ª pergunta do meu Quiz! Imagina eu falando algo no seu ouvido 😛 mas...o que você gostaria que eu te dissesse? 🥵
| LEMON BALM WILD BLUEBERRY ICE TEA | This recipe combines two of my favorite healing foods–lemon bam and wild blueberries. Both of these foods offer a powerhouse of healing benefits that are helpful for everyone. They also taste delicious when paired together in this recipe! Make plenty of this recipe and store it in the fridge as you’ll likely find yourself gong back for more and more!
Lemon balm: Kills viruses, bacteria, and other pathogenic microorganisms inside the liver. Makes a better environment in the intestinal tract, which supports the delivery of cleaner nutrients from the gut to the liver. Lemon balm calms the nerves of the liver, causing it to be less spasmodic, agitated, and angry, while also calming the nerves inside of the intestinal lining, which lowers toxic heat inside the liver. It also supports the adrenals, which makes the liver less toxic.
Wild blueberries: Contain dozens of antioxidants, including anthocyanin varieties. Not only do wild blueberries have the ability to grab on to plenty of troublemakers, they also hold on to them as they leave the liver, in a way that most other healing foods cannot. The pigments in wild blueberries have the ability to saturate deep into liver cells and cross cell walls and membranes inside the liver, spreading their blue everywhere. Wild blueberries enhance the intestinal tract, feeding good bacteria there, which benefits the liver greatly.
Lemon Balm Wild Blueberry Iced Tea
1 cup frozen wild blueberries
1/2 cup maple syrup
3 tbsp lemon juice
4 lemon balm tea bags
4 cups of water
Ice, to serve
Handful of fresh lemon balm, for garnish
Place the wild blueberries, maple syrup and lemon juice in a medium-sized saucepan. Cook over low heat until the wild blueberries are mushy, about 5 minutes.
Add the water and bring to a simmer. Turn the heat off, add the tea bags and allow to steep for 10 minutes. Pour everything through a fine-mesh sieve into a pitcher or bowl, using the back of a spoon to squeeze out juice from the blueberries and tea bags. Chill the tea for about an hour in the fridge, then serve over ice with fresh lemon balm for garnish.

@dougaitkenworkshop takes us to upstate new york to discover the private residence and foundation where he installed a site-specific earthwork, ‘lighthouse’. over the course of a year, aitken documented images of the landscape surrounding the property, capturing ephemeral views of the changing seasons. these sequences are projected onto the house’s frosted glass exterior surfaces, wrapping its façade in moving images of the environment in which it exists.
the video above forms part of #dougaitken's exclusive, ongoing video series with #designboom – a visual road trip through the creative process shared during this uncertain climate. the short films invite viewers on a creative odyssey across landscape, artistic expression and societal currents — from wherever in the world they are experiencing this unprecedented moment in time.

Гармония рук ♥️
Both my parents served in the Indian Army... and maybe that’s why I feel such a kinship with military families all over the world. Today let’s think of all the fallen heroes that have given their lives in service to protect our freedom. #memorialday @madhumalati #LtcolAshokChopra

2020 is just a string of bittersweet moments for everyone I am sure. For us in particular—we would have been in NYC this past week celebrating our oldest daughter Tyler’s @tajlee graduation from @columbialawschool after three years toiling in the salt mines of the Arthur Diamond Law Library. Instead, we got to see her name flash by (in California) via a virtual ceremony with no pomp or circumstance. They say the accomplishment itself is the real reward, but it’s still a bit sad to see such momentous milestones pass by with little fanfare. We are still enormously proud of her; not only did she excel at her academics—she was also the Executive Editor of the Columbia Human Rights Law Review and as an advocate at the Immigration Clinic, Tyler worked tirelessly for detained asylum seekers. How she found time to rank up in Valorant is still a mystery to us all (time portal? cloned, less evil twin? 🤷🏻♂️)!? If there’s one blessing, it’s that she is now returning home to California after spending months holed up in a tiny apartment in the city hardest hit by the pandemic in the US. Travel safe and know we are so proud of you and all you have accomplished, Tyler! Love you ❤️🎊🎉👏🏼
Love 💙 @vida_glow. Since I’ve been super-charging my H2O with the Marine Collagen sachets, my skin has felt so much more plump and hydrated, and my hair is growing so quickly that I can barely keep a bob past two months. Routine has never been my strong point, but this one’s worth sticking to 💙 #VidaGlow
