Wynona's Adoption Day
I love getting to do this as a "job". Every event is special and being a part of everyone's special moments are never lost on me. I love capturing little pieces of time and giving them to the individuals who entrust me with their memories. That being said, this is one of the most special events I've ever gotten to be a part of and I hope I did it justice.
This young lady was welcomed into a beautiful, blended family with loving arms after going through moments that no child should have to endure. 1646 days in foster care followed by 601 days in her new family's home...and finally adopted on January 9th, 2020. After her adoption was finalized by the judge and the family walked up to take photos...this little lady (at the ripe old age of 7) says, "I would like to say something. I just want to say thank you to all of you who could be here for this special time for me and for my family. I'm so happy you're all here." (Cue tears) From family to friends to her first teachers...What a gift it was to witness. There's a lot of negativity in this world and this was a true definition of light. Congratulations, Wynona and family!
