Nov 18th 2017 - Samantha commented recently on how much change there has been over the past year - new room, new glasses, new challenges and accomplishments at school, etc. She will be a full-fledged teenager in only a few short months, and we're all certain that there will be even more amazing changes to come!
Samantha Online - Important Site Information
Many of you have watched Samantha grow up from a newborn baby to a preteen. During that time, we have been updating the site every month, with a veritable avalanche of photos chronicling her development. As she has grown, it has become harder and harder to keep up with the demand. It's easy to take a dozen photos a day or more of a two-year-old. Not so much with an eleven-year-old who likes a little more privacy.
Therefore, we have reached a decision that in future, the site will no longer be updated on a monthly basis. We know many of you will be disappointed by this news, but we hope you will understand why it has to be this way. The time when she will be away at University is fast approaching (perhaps more rapidly than we're comfortable with!), and Samantha herself is finding that having a camera thrust at her constantly is becoming more and more annoying. We will continue to photograph her when possible, and the site will be updated from time to time as photos are available. But we all need a break from the pressure to come up with 30-40 new photos every month, which is how many we normally need in order to select the best dozen or so for posting online.
We thank all of Sam's loyal fans, friends and family members around the world who pop in to see her. All of you are appreciated by us, and we look forward to keeping you updated as often as we can with news on our beautiful daughter. This is not an end to the story, just a change in how it's told. Everyone who is signed up will be notified when new pictures are available, just like always. Once again, thanks to all of you for coming along with us on the ride of a lifetime.
