“Anyone who ever wondered how much they could love a child who did not spring from their own loins, know this: it is the same. The feeling of love is so profound, it's incredible and surprising.”
This family is one of the kindest families I have ever known, and it has taken them three long years to finally have their entire family under one roof. Joe and I work together ( outside of my photography). He is an awesome Flight Nurse, and through our hustle and bustle at work we usually find time to "check" in on his progress through the years with the adoption. I can't even begin to imagine the heartache they felt every time they came home from a visit, the joy of seeing there kids, and the anguish of having to leave them behind. I think to myself, adoption shouldn't be that hard.
Let me tell you something, these two kiddos are something else! From the moment they stepped out of the vehicles they were ALL smiles...like ear to ear smiles.
It touched my heart so much.
As you scroll through this blog and through this session, I hope you will feel the love that this family has for each other. It's a reminder that being a "family" is more than just giving birth or having kids. It's about the bond you create, the moments you experience ad the love you have for each other.
Thank you Joe and Betsy for allowing me to capture your very first family picture, Love you guys!!!
