You have made a good observation. It is unusual for a child of this age to only use black when colouring in. When children do this it is thought that they are showing signs of being depressed or have feelings of hopelesness. This may be the result of this liitle girl's previous experience.It would be a good idea to ask a child psychologist to see her even if she is only 3 years old.

Your pictures of a warm sunny day look dfgilhteul it''s so cold here, just wanting to spring to happen 29 degrees F (-1.6 C). Alice is so precious, just wishing I could pick her up and cuddle. We''ll continue praying for Teddy. Can''t believe that one year ago I was preparing to visit NZ. The owls have begun hooting at night, a wonderful sound to fall asleep to and the birds are beginning to return, so spring is on the way, just very cooly!
