Andrew and I just had our family photos taken. (And what a happy little family we are!) We wanted these pictures to express the unique stage we are in right now as a family. We are growing, adding more members. But how could add the adoption element to our pictures? How could we include the children we want to adopt? I found tons of cute ideas for including adoption in family photos. I am sure we will try out all the ideas someday, but for this photo shoot we wanted to express how we feel that our kids are "growing in our hearts." A beautiful, old adoption poem reads:
Not flesh of my flesh,
Nor bone of my bone,
but still miraculously my own.
Never forget for a single minute;
You didn't grow under my heart
but in it.
I want to give a shout out and big thank you to my sister Jamie for helping us document this stage in our life! Check out her work on her Facebook page, Jamie Loray Photography.
