We've been waiting for our baby for six years. For most of that time, we haven't let ourselves buy things for a baby because it felt like bad luck, or even too emotionally painful because we experienced loss and grief with the process. But, adoption has given us restored hope and allowed us to finally feel like this WILL happen, we WILL have a baby in our arms soon. So, with restored hope, we've let ourselves start to plan, buy things, and prepare for a child.
We decided to do adoption 'maternity' photos to celebrate the process of preparing for a baby and to have something beautiful to show our baby one day so that they can see how excited and hopeful the idea of them coming to us made us feel. Here is a photo from the shoot!
