Well, friends, it's been another one of those weeks - just plain hectic and very little time to spend with my computer. I've got lots of pictures piling up, but I don't see me being able to post any for at least a couple days. So.......... I thought I would share this. This was from a photo shoot I did last weekend. It was very much outside my typical family/child photo shoot, so it pushed me outside my comfort zone. I loved being able to get my creative juices flowing, though, and had tons of fun with it. Here's one of my favorites.

In addition to running my own photography business, I am a proud mother to three beautiful girls that were born in my heart, and a wife to my wonderful husband of 17 years. We adopted Leila from Moscow, Russia at 32-months old and Mia from Jiangsu Province, China at 13-months old. We thought we were done at two, until God led us on another journey to China - this time to bring home our 11-year old daughter, Kara Da Xin in July 2009. I am also the proud Aunt of two nephews, born in Guatemala, and a niece, born in China. I am so thankful to our Heavenly Father for blessing our family with these amazing children.
This is a very special necklace I had made to keep my children close to my heart. On the left, it says "family" in Russian. On the right, it says, "mother and daughter joined at the heart" in Chinese. I love this piece of jewelry and how it always reminds me of our journey to bring home our three precious girls.
