Harry Potter Off Camera: The Potter Family

I remember one day, a little over a year ago, when I was working on this site and it occurred to me that my son was almost exactly the same age Harry had been on the day James and Lily were killed. As a parent you’re always worried about the safety and future of your family, but that realization really made Harry’s story hit home for me in a new way.

My little boy is now almost two and a half, but our family otherwise looks much the same as the Potters once did. So it’s probably not surprising that the story that this new page tells is one that fascinates me – the sort of thing that makes me want to cry with joy and horror all at the same time. The Potter Family wasn’t a family for long, but they sure left their mark on the world.

Harry Potter Off Camera: The Potter Family

By the way, I appreciate the comments and e-mails I’ve gotten expressing folks’ excitement that I posted a new page again this week. Even as I’ve been updating less frequently recently, the site is still going strong (we’re over 3.5 million page views now), and I can’t thank you all enough. I’m sure I’ll still be in and out over time, but I’m no less determined to finish the projects I’ve started (and I have a new project or two that I’ve been mulling over for when they’re done, so we’ll see how that goes). So, thanks! It’s good to see you all again. :)
