34. This is quite doable, I'd bet.

My cousin was a very middle middle class person who had lost her job and needed direction. She worked with her therapist to get ideas of what abused children needed and how she could support them. She started writing a book, got her daughter to draw lots of pictures of all types of little girls, filled it full of love and support and great advice, took it around and got advice and after re-writes, eventual approval from 4 different child therapists who specialized in abused patients. Her book got published and is now used in schools and by therapists. Most of her sales have been therapists ordering her books for their patients, but churches, schools and individuals are also buying. From this success, she has gone on to publish 4 self-help books for children. She has zero knowledge of the industry, no connections, just a desire to do something positive. I bet a similar approach, maybe going to art schools or Black HIstory Professors, would work to make a book out of these, maybe with the picture upfront, then a chapter about each?? Anyway, just a suggestion for sharing these spectacular and beautiful photos, if you want to do that.

Whatever you decide to do or not, thank you so much for sharing these with us.
