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!

Photography Giveaway--- Phoenix AZ area for those touched by adoption!

I apologize for not posting yesterday. The stomach flu has been rampant in our house. It started out with our sweet nephew who spent the night last week, then I got it, now Tamara has it. We're hoping it stops with her and that Jacob and Emily don't get it. *praying*

Anyhow, here is the post that was supposed to go up yesterday. I will post for today later on.

This is a giveaway for anyone touched by adoption, offered by my long time friend Kim of Kim Nevels Photography. I have known Kim since my early years of high school. It's been 18 or so years now (boy does that make me feel old!) Kim is an amazing wife, mom, friend, and photographer. And she is offering a free photo session to those touched by adoption in the East Valley of Phoenix AZ area. (Or if you would like to enter but don't live in that area, but would like to pay her traveling costs, Kim is happy to come to you.) Kim is also the sister of a birthmom, so adoption means alot to her. And when I went to her and asked if she would be willing to offer a giveaway, she was happy to.

If you are a hoping to adopt family and need updated photos for your profile, blog, pass along cards etc., if you have recently welcomed home your newly adopted little one, or if you are about to welcome home a newly adopted little one and would love someone there to document those moments, if you are a family who has adopted, if you would like to do maternity photos with your birthmom, if you are a birthmom and would like maternity photos, or if you are a birthfamily who is about to place, and would like photos with your little one in the hospital before placement (Kim did this for her sister, and these are pictures her whole family cherish's.), and you live in or around Phoenix, this is for you!

The photo session will include the actual session of course, along with a CD of your pictures, fully edited.

So you want to know how to enter right? It's simple, just leave a comment here with your email address, tell me how adoption has touched your life. It's that simple. :D

Want an extra entry?! Blog about this, and leave an additional comment with a link to your blog post and you will get an additional entry. Also, Facebook about this giveaway and leave another comment telling me you did a Facebook post, and that is an additional entry! That's up to 3 entries!
