I was so happy to photograph Keegan’s adoption becoming official! Stacey is a friend of a childhood friend (hi, Alice!), and she was just as excited as I was about the pictures. She and her husband asked me to be at the courthouse as their adoption journey was reaching the finish line, and it was an incredibly special day for all who were there. Stacey said:
“It was such a special day for us- we knew from the second we met Keegan when he was 12 hours old that he was meant to be ours, but it was SUCH A RELIEF to have the state of Tennessee agree! It was also wonderful having all of our parents there to celebrate with us—they have been on the journey supporting us every step of the way through infertility, failed IVF, and the scary road of adoption, so this day meant so much to all of us! We are finally a family of 3, and parents to the MOST amazing, happy little boy we could have ever dreamed of! God had a plan for us all along 🙂 Adoption isn’t easy, but it’s worth it! Thank you for capturing this special day for us- we can’t wait to tell Keegan about the amazing journey that made us a family. He is so loved!”
It was obvious from the short time that I was with them – this beautiful boy is SO loved!
