We adopt not because we are rescuers. No. We adopt because we are rescued. -David Platt
I always find such deep joy when documenting forever families because they are truly changing the world. They are stepping in and stepping up. They are following a call, no matter the cost.
With each adoption story I capture, I hear of the patience, perseverance and pain that accompanies the journey…and then like a brilliant ray of sun in the midst of darkness, a child is born and suddenly, in that very instant it all becomes worth it. Such love and dedication. Such selflessness and sacrifice. It is so beautiful to hear the stories of these families time and time again.
And when I see them together, my heart nearly bursts. This type of love, it is indescribable. It is breathtaking. It is hope giving.
On this particular day, what captivated me the most was the immense adoration of these two older brothers for their new sister. To say they are smitten would be the understatement of the year! Each wanting to hold her, snuggle her, kiss her, sing to her, comfort her…she will never be short on affection or protectors. And oh how you could see in her mommy and daddy’s eyes their love and devotion to her as well. She will be fiercely loved all the days of her life!
Such a beautiful girl with such a beautiful story ahead of her… Welcome to the world sweet Corin!
