I want you to meet Eva! She is such a beautiful and sweet baby girl. I love all of my clients, but many will have touched my heart in a special way. Eva will always be one of them. Eva is an adoption story and like so many, it wasn’t an easy one. Tara & Ali contacted me in fall of 2014 for a newborn session. They were adopting their first baby. Sadly, I received a follow up email saying that it didn’t work out. My heart was broken for them. I couldn’t imagine what it was like to go through that. I was impressed with Ali’s response. When she contacted me she said that they wanted me to hold their retainer. They didn’t want the money back because they were determined and were going to be parents. So I held their retainer and I would think of them often hoping they would get their baby they wanted so badly.
Then the email came! They were called to go get a baby girl in Tennessee! I had everything crossed for them and said some prayers. I was so nervous. I know that many parents trying so hard to have a baby face many challenges and losses. So it wouldn’t be uncommon for something to happen yet again. I’m happy to report they got their happy ending! They brought little Eva home and sent me photos of her while they were with her in Tennessee. I was so thrilled and couldn’t wait to meet everyone! Tara couldn’t stay long due to work, but I enjoyed spending my time with both of them and loving on their baby girl. She is so beautiful and such a gift. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing her again at Christmas and she is getting so big already! I can’t wait to see her again and follow watch her grow right alongside her moms.
