What a joyful occasion. I loved this family, their culture and all the fun we had together. Cheers Pratima and Andrew!
Congratulations to the Oliver family on the beautiful addition to their family, Hadley, from China. Adoption holds a special place in my heart. I was adopted when I was four years old. I’m thankful that God placed me where I am and all of the opportunities I’ve been given because of adoption. When the Kohut family started visitations with me they took me to the ocean. A family favorite and I had never seen it. What do you think I did as a four year old? I walked straight into the Pacific ocean… the chilly pacific ocean and started getting rolled around in the break. I couldn’t swim. My mom panicked and ran to rescue me while my dad grabbed the 35mm camera and started clicking away. Those photos are hilarious. I’m honored I was able to capture Hadley’s first ocean experience.
