It had been over a year since I last updated my website, so I have taken the past month to do a complete overhaul on it. I know some of you are wondering why I would redo my website if I am no longer offering sessions. Well, it does have some SnapShop info on it and I wanted an updated online portfolio. I do hope to do some charitable work here and there, so it is nice to have a website for others to view my work. I think it came out great, I would love for you to visit and come back here to the comment section and let me know what you think? Just click on the link above or the “my website” tab to the top left.
My little “nephew” stopped by to see me. You might remember him from his newborn pics. He wore a onesie I had bought him from My HodgePodgerie (who is having a big sale right now). I – of course – had to snap of few in his stylin’ necktie! Sorry C if you’ve been checking the blog all week waiting to see some of these!
I absolutely love this picture because it shows the tenderness between a mother and child.
Tonight our church hosted the Russian Lighthouse Project. Chris and I jumped on the opportunity to take our boys and expose them to such a valuable organization. The purpose of last night was to let the orphans perform a few songs and poems for their host families, potential adoptive families and anyone else would like to attend. We aren’t at a point of adopting an older child (we do dream of adopting in the coming years), but wanted to show support for the kids. Their were 14 orphans – 11 of which were boys. They did an amazing job and seemed so full of life.
As a mom to three boys – it was heartwrenching to know the kids were singing out their hearts without a mom or dad in the audience cheering. They won’t go home and be tucked in and prayed over by their parents. When we put our boys to bed Biggest Brother prayed, “Dear God, please give all the Russian kids a mommy and daddy. Please give them a home and lots of brothers and sisters.” And as their faces fill my mind, I pray the same…
