Anthony, New Mexico
"Two weeks after I had my son, I turned 41. Two years later, we adopted our daughter from China, and I stopped coloring my hair. The first time I saw the gray, I thought, 'Oh, this is really different.' But my husband encouraged me every step of the way. I would get stopped with my little ones, and people would say, 'Are those your grandkids?' But simplicity has become very important to me. I just want to be healthy for my kids and set a good example. I don't want to be fixated on outside appearance." — Photo by Ben Baker
