Royal family outing in the marketplace of Home City

With the loss of my grandparents this summer, I feel even more acutely the importance of “family of choice.” There are so many wonderful people in my life that I’ve found through luck rather than blood ties, from my super supportive in-laws, to my loyal friends.

Queen Shulamit is also lucky that way. With her warm, nurturing, and innovative partner Aviva, her bodyguard Rivka who’s like that big sister who beats up the bullies and then hugs you til you stop crying, and Isaac, the fatherly palace wizard, she’s got the emotional support she needs to run a country and raise that cute little baby princess.
