Downs Family, Adoption Story
A few years ago, I stood on this bridge with my friends Kelly and Nathan and their two children to help them create an announcement to share the news that they were adopting a child from the Philippines. It was a beautiful evening. The kids ran the length of the old bridge and peered over its sides at the water below. Just a typical family night at the start of a long, difficult journey-- like most adoption stories are.
And, a few weeks ago, on a very similar early fall evening, we met on the bridge again for their first "official" portraits as a family. A long journey, finally closing that chapter.
But the story is just beginning!
Welcome, Judah. It's like you've always been here.
