I’m not nearly as eloquent with words as she is, so I’m having a hard time deciding what to write about being there a second time as they arrived home. Instead I’ll just say what a joy and honor it was to take these photographs for them. After adopting child number two from Uganda, they are now a family of six.
The mom of this clan waited in Africa along with their oldest daughter for weeks to bring their newest gift home. They were greeted with hugs and tears, a little boy with wet pants, an entourage of family with cameras ready, and missing luggage. Kim took everything in stride, and at one point said, “Wow, I can’t believe we have four kids now”, holding the 22 month old and watching the older kids run around them in circles. It made me smile. I have no doubt that six is going to be a wonderful number for them.
