Waiting for Samuel
This sweet couple have been waiting for A LONG TIME to bring their son home. You might remember the Superhero Shower that we threw for them a few months ago. They adopted a little boy from Bulgaria, and as a community we have been waiting with them to meet the little guy. There have been financial hurdles, paperwork trails, and lots of agonizing procedures and steps to work through. As a family waiting, and wanting, too, our hearts have gone out to them. The waiting is hard. It is a trying time – full of trust, patience and finding a peace that passing all understanding.
That waiting time is over for them though, and pretty soon they will be back in China with Samuel.
For months we spoke about a “Waiting for Samuel” type of photo shoot, but as adoption day neared, we almost gave up on the shoot happening. Thankfully though, after fellowship last week, we ran out into the autumn leaves to get some pictures for them to use as their travel date announcements. I was so excited, and honored, to play a (very small) part is this beautiful story.
I cannot wait to do a family shoot with these three!
