Last night, I had the privilege of being a part of an amazing thing! Best friends of my husband and I, Scott and Maria, have been given the gift of life, through a courageous set of people. I titled this blog entry, "Faith-Hope-Love" because it was the foundation of this adoption process. Faith in knowing God has a plan for us all, Hope in trusting His heart and Love in the gift of life. 

I took my camera in hopes that I would be able to capture the emotions of the evening and let me tell you, there were plenty!! With Scott and Maria's permission I want to take the opportunity to share with you a small piece of their story through the lens of my camera...

Scott "patiently" waiting for any news

Maria writing words of inexpressible thanks to the birth father of Kinley

Getting the message that Kinley has been born.

The NEWS!!! Kinley is here!

Congrats from everyone

Waiting as Kinley heads their way.
