Today is Maya's birthday. She's turning 12 just like Cody did a few weeks ago. This photo was taken in Aswan, Egypt. Maya lives in Cairo and will be back in the US next Friday to visit us for the summer (along with her adorable sister Asia who I will feature in September).
Maya's a smart girl, very artistic and caring toward others and animals. She's a voracious reader and likes to write. I think this photo shows her calm interior nature quite well. I'm completely devoted to her.
