There is something important about the language of adoption.
We have all heard the oblivious or naive comments people have made. But there is another side to this. The part that is overwhelmed with beauty. The part that describes a most special relationship. A belonging and the gift of being chosen.
The email I got from Stephanie (mom) back in October reads “My husband and I are adopting from China… We will return home with our 18 month old son.” It’s that beauty of belonging. Our son. The one we will take care of. The one we will teach, be animated with, love on, snuggle with and teach about God. He will forever be entrusted in your care.
Thank you for allowing me to capture your sweet family together and the gift of your amazing son!
