Akron OH Adoption & Baby Photographer | A STARK COUNTY ADOPTION FINALIZATION
A few months ago I had the pleasure of meeting this sweet family of 3 in Akron for their daughter’s adoption finalization ceremony. I was able to post about their adoption and family session on the Red Thread Sessions site but I never did get around to showing you all here!! So here you go… 🙂 (plus, I get to tell you that I get to see this adorable baby girl for her first birthday photos in November! Lucky me!! 😀
When asked to tell me a little about their adoption story, this is what was said… 🙂
“We got an email on a Friday afternoon in November that there was a baby girl who had been born not quite a week prior, and whose birth mother wanted to meet us on Sunday. We hadn’t realized we had even been presented to a birth mother, but we didn’t get too excited because we had been presented half a dozen other times over the past three months our home study had been completed, and were not chosen to meet the birth parents. We went and met the birth mother on Sunday, along with three of her children. At that meeting, she told us she wanted us to parent her daughter and asked the social worker to take us to meet her daughter, who was in a cradle care home. The birth mother said that she wanted her daughter home with us as soon as possible, and asked if we could do the actual placement the next day, Monday. We said goodbye to the birth mother that day and followed the social worker to meet this baby. We were warmly welcomed by the cradle care family, and held the tiny baby girl (5lbs!) for the first time. We realized that we had no baby supplies and we both had to go to work the next day, so we said goodbye and raced to the baby supply store before it closed. We were there for the half hour before they closed trying to gather what we thought we might need for a baby the next day. On Monday, my husband went to his first day of his brand new job, and I went to the job that I had only had for two weeks. I asked for maternity leave and explained what had happened, and then that afternoon we went down for the placement. We came home with our daughter 24 hours after meeting her, and were instant parents! 🙂 The rest is history!”
Isn’t that so crazy? I love their adoption story! Enjoy some photos of their adoption finalization ceremony and a few family photos following.
I would love to photograph your own adoption story! I live and work in Tuscarawas County and I travel to Stark, Holmes and surrounding areas.
Thank you once again Red Thread Sessions for giving us this amazing community and organization to work with and give back to these families!
