Welcome to our corner of the web! Here you will learn about our family and our journey of a family member adoption. In July of 2010, after 9 years of trying to add to our family and 5 years after we started our adoption journey, we welcomed baby Emily Rose. Emily's birth mom is Sharon's adopted sister. We look forward to someday adopting more children but for now, we are enjoying our time together as a family of 4!

Duck Pond

Several weeks ago we had some friends from church over for dinner. Tammy and Mike are adopting too and they wanted to talk to us about our experience so far. We were happy to have them here and had a great time getting to know them. Tammy found out that I like photography and asked me if I could do some photos for their profile. I was glad to and told her to just let me know when and where.

Yesterday we were finally able to get together to get photos. My Tammy didn't want to go (it would mean getting out of bed before 1p.m. and what teenager wants to do that during the summer right?) So Jacob came with me off we went. I'm gonna post pictures later of Tammy and Mike. But wanted to share these with you.

We went to the Duck Pond at the UNM Campus and let me tell you, that place is so pretty! I think when I do the photo session for Sister B. from church I am going to suggest the Duck Pond for a location. Seriously gorgeous! A very pretty pond, and lots of grass, trees, and of course, Ducks:

What was Jacob doing while I was taking pictures of Tammy and Mike?
I handed Tammy (The friend, not the daughter, cause remember, the daughter was at home sleeping) my camera and she took a few shots of Jacob and I.
