The most joyful celebration – Hudson is home with his forever family
A dream come true
This is a post I’ve dreamed of writing for months, but I had no idea when the time would come.
I met Susan through work when she was hired as my other half. Together we ran the public relations program for PACN, a local pregnancy medical clinic. Her son Cooper was an adorable sidekick at some of our meetings – he was the most well-behaved little guy I had ever met!
We got to know each other well and I considered her a sweet friend who was generous with motherhood advice, since her son was a little older than my girls. Susan shared with me her desire for more children, an on-going prayer that would be answered at the perfect time.
She and I still work together, although I stepped down years ago as a full-time employee and now serve as a volunteer photographer for PACN.
“For this child I have prayed…”
Susan sent me an email earlier this year asking for prayer for the adoption journey she and her husband Chris had started. I was thrilled to hear they were hoping to expand their family of three – but I was blown away by the sweetest request at the end of her email.
She said she was dreaming of the day I’d come to the hospital and photograph a Fresh 48 session for her baby, whenever that time came.
I knew there was pretty much nothing that would keep me from photographing Susan’s new baby someday. None of us expected that joyful day to happen so soon!
On April 8, 2019, Susan’s prayer for a baby was answered: Hudson weighed 7lbs and 5 oz. He’s a perfectly handsome little guy with dark hair and the most beautiful skin.
What an honor and a joy to capture the moment when big brother Cooper met his brother – I still get tears just thinking about it. There was so much thankfulness and joy as this sweet family surrounded Hudson and celebrated his new life.
A beautiful, blessed family of four
Now the real adventure starts as Hudson and his family get to know each other. Big brother Cooper is excited to teach him how to play basketball and about science, his favorite school subject. He’s ready to read stories to tiny Hudson, sweet memories I know their mama will treasure for a lifetime.
What a blessing to watch this adorable family welcome Hudson, the answer to his mama’s prayers!
