This week I was privileged to photograph the adoption homecoming of a beautiful, three year old boy from China. I want to share the pictures with you and maybe, with permission, I will soon; but I feel right now it is their story to tell, their moment to share. However, I can't bring myself to choose any other photos for my project 52, so for now, this week's memory is tucked away in my heart. And the best description I can give you is this- it was joyous, incredible, beautiful. A glimpse of heaven.
"...God's Spirit touches our spirits and confirms who we really are. We know who he is, and we know who we are: Father and children..." -Romans 8:15, The Message
I've got some cute new little people gracing the front page over HERE.
One of the great things about this community I live in has been the opportunity to photograph many faces of new friends and their little ones.
As winter creeps on ever closer to spring, so has the realization of how soon we will have to say goodbye. Again. This season while short, has been so very sweet, and I am so very grateful for friendships that will stick even as we are scattered across the globe.
mcp actions project 52 ~ week 7
(theme open your heart)
They've all had birthdays in the past month and it has us watching them more closely, stopping to just stare, holding them tighter and wishing we could freeze time right now.
I know that's not really what we want but it feels that way sometimes.
Like when he cuddles up alongside and asks for one more chapter, or when she comes down stairs in polka-dots, flowers and plaids, or when the baby (who is so much less baby now) says something cute in a full, coherent sentence with those big eyes staring up...
like those times.
My heart is full and overflowing.
