I absolutely felt so honored to be apart of this special day. Mom and dad adopted a little girl from Ethopia, they had been waiting for this day for over 2 years, the day finally came, but dad wasn’t able to be there since he was deployed. Mom found Operation Love Reunited and was able to find me to come and take pictures of her getting her daughter to take home for the very first time. I felt so blessed to have been there. You could tell how much mom was already in love with her little girl and how long she had waited for this day, as the tears fell down her face. I tried everything in my power not to cry.
This happened back in June, but I wanted to wait until Dad got home to be able to post this, he just got home yesterday, YAY! Mom was kind enough to let me post a picture of her and her little girl! I couldn’t resist the sweetness! Her daughter is so gorgeous and has the cutest curly hair! I am happy to see clients get their families back together and happy I was able to be apart of such an amazing moment in someone’s life.
Dad didn’t know I was there until he received a photo book from me in the mail, he was touched by the book. I received an email from him in the morning when I woke up one day and I was in tears from his kind words. Sweet emails like that touch me and make me remember why I am involved in such an awesome organization to offer this to military families!
