it’s without question one of the most precious occasions i ever have the opportunity to shoot…the day a child joins her family. sometimes that moment takes place in the quiet of a dimly lit hospital room, but for several of our friends recently, that day has occurred amidst a throng of cheering people at the airport.
mara ruth landed on U.S. soil to an excited group of family and friends who had prayed for her arrival for close to three years now. her short life has held great loss – but praise god! – last night she entered her new home with a new name. the lord graciously provided for her adoption into a family who knows well the grace of adoption.
congratulations, david and heather, on your beautiful daughter’s birth into your family’s life. we love you dearly and are so thankful to god for mara ruth!
god sets the lonely in families. – psalm 68:6
