"All Life Is Joyous"


Joyous is always looking on the bright side of life, always trying to see the good in every situation, no matter how difficult or challenging that proves to be.

In these dark days of her life it is difficult see anything good or positive. But then she meets Joyous and he shows her the good in life, in herself and he calls names her Moonbeam.

Joyous & Moonbeam are the unlikeliest of friends, offering each other understanding, companionship and the freedom to be themselves.
