My hubby and I are so excited that our family is growing! We are in the process of Adopting our second child, "baby Elmo," who is due in early March. (We're keeping the gender a secret, and since "Elmo" is our daughter's answer to everything right now, that is the nickname we use to keep ourselves from spilling the beans)

 

As a fundraiser for our Adoption, I put together a day of mini sessions. These beautiful families came out with big, bright smiles and lots of love. I truly appreciate how they shared in my family's joy; after Uncle Sam got his cut I was able to put aside the amount needed to pay for our Home Study - which is the required documents, home visits/inspections, classes, interviews and background checks needed to be able to adopt. These families are helping us literally make it possible to bring our baby home ... "thank you" is just not enough to say to them!
