International Adoption Picnic recap

3 08 2009

Well, minus the downpours of rain, the picnic was wonderful! I think everyone who attended had a great time. I was able to squeeze a few family mini-sessions in before it began to rain, and they were so much fun. It was a privilege to meet so many adoptive parents and kids from all over the world! I was especially excited to meet a little 8 month old boy who was just recently adopted from Ethiopia (for those of you who don’t know, my husband and I are adopting a little girl from Ethiopia who is now 8 months old!)We are still waiting on our court date, and when we know that date we will have a better idea when we travel to bring our little girl home. Being at the picnic only made me more excited for the day we meet her!

So here are just a few of my favorites from the day. A special thanks to Sara Lawrence from RavenLark Arts who helped me design the beautiful canopy that you see in the photos. I could not have done it without her help!!!
