I have met so many people through adoption, but I have been friends with this great mom for years before either of us started our adoption journeys. Yet, after MUCH waiting for both of us, we both brought home kids in 2012. This little one was born in early November and after a long road trip to get her, they arrived home in time for some holiday photos. She was an absolute angel during the shoot, even cooperating with several smiles for me.
I got the chance to take some pictures of another new arrival…welcome to the world Finleigh! These were taken on her second day at home, after spending a little while in the NICU.
Here’s her great family:
Here are some of the little (and by little, I mean preemie little) sweetheart:
And here’s some of her with her awesome big sister, Ella:
These two beautiful girls were adopted through the same agency as our kids. We got to know their mom before our kids home, and she has given us some great advice. It’s great to have someone local who can help you connect to the (very small) Ethiopian community in our small town. And the girls are absolutely gorgeous. So, I loved this shoot.
