The Greatest Gift

August 18, 2017  •  10 Comments

The greatest gift on this planet to a yearning mother is a baby. Sometimes the greatest gift comes after the greatest pain. This is one amazing story of two people who were destined to be parents!

These two love birds got married and were excited to start a family. I can remember the messages from her eager to take the announcement images or planning maternity photos. After months upon months of trying and nothing happening they visited some doctors to discuss IVF. She went through multiple IVF and other fertility options that all failed or never took. I remember her being so excited with the possibility of becoming pregnant with twins or even one baby! Any amount of babies would do! She was crushed after nothing taking. After trying for months with no avail they opted to discuss adoption. They were matched with a young mother to be who wanted an open adoption and they were very excited to get to know her. They spent time with her and finally the day came when the baby was born. April 1st, they went to the hospital to see "their new baby" but that was not the case, unfortunately the biological father decided he wanted to be involved and take custody of the baby. They went home with an empty car seat, an April Fools "joke" that haunted her for months.

She contacted me a few weeks ago to come help he with a video to submit to the adoption agency. She had decided to get back on the horse and try again! I happily said yes as I couldn't imagine what they had been through and it meant a lot she asked for my help! We scheduled it and we were hopeful this would get a baby in her arms faster! On Tuesday August 8th I got a message from her that read "I might need to book a newborn session instead of the video!" and I screamed as I replied! OH MY GOD!

She was contacted by the adoption agency and was told that "her baby had just been born" at a local hospital! It was unbelievable! A young woman went in to the hospital for stomach pains and found out she was about to have a baby! Unknowing she was even pregnant she couldn't care for the baby she requested to place  the baby for adoption. They met all the criteria she was looking for in an adoptive couple. Within 48 hours they went from living a normal life to having a newborn! Talk about 0-60mph! She is living her dream and I couldn't be happier for them both! They will make the best parents and I was honored to be able to capture these amazing memories of their new bundle of joy!


So today I got to meet Mr Logan who is their Rainbow of Hope after a long and painful wait! Welcome to the world little man! You are so LOVED!


He has two furry siblings who will keep him laughing and protected for the rest of their lives! I just love these three!!!
