I took this photo last year in April and it was at a really relaxing time, Micah was a tiny baby but I was away from him for just a little bit because I had a cool opportunity to photograph a small wedding at a butterfly garden. As I sat in the peaceful garden alone this little guy landed near me, it was one of those "moments" that I will never forget. Little did I know that before God had even stirred my heart toward adoption. My son was being born that day on the other side of the world.
Today at 1:38 on May 13th I received the call that every adoptive parents wants to get.
"Would you consider adopting a one year old boy?"
"ok, go check your email"
<insert ugly crying for about 30 mins>
<oh and also insert the apartment repair man who came to fix my lightbulb in the kitchen who now thinks I am a crazy lady, he asked no question, I gave no explanation for the sobbing>
These are his hands =) Im gonna hold them real soon.
