It's been awhile since we've done a family session because we've been waiting for a birth mom to pick them to parent their 3rd child. Well... that happened last month.
Emotionally they were on the top of a mountain. They met him. Named him. Cuddled him.. and in the blink of an eye the birth mama changed her mind and decided to mother her son.
I have never watched a family deal with a loss so beautifully as Erin and Andy.
Their hearts hurt.. badly.
They prayed for their new child for 5 years.
As Erin has dealt with the excitement and heartache of their loss I will ALWAYS remember her words..
"I asked God to use me.. I can't chose Him to use me in ways that aren't painful."
So true and raw and God breathed.
This is their family right here and now. Do we all believe their family will be bigger in the future? You betcha!
For now.. they chose joy as they wait again. Knowing that the baby they've prayed for will be in their home forever.. soon.
Love you guys.
