This, I thought. This is the beginning of a beautiful, wonderful sisterhood.
It was so wonderful to get to catch up with Ruthie, too! She shared with me that they have been waiting to adopt — both patiently and impatiently (in her words!) — for over four years! I was so humbled to be welcomed into their home during this special time, and to get to witness their older daughter stepping into her new role of big sister! She is about the same age I was when my brother was born, and I kept catching glimpses of myself during our session: The proud big sister. The helper. The doting second mama. I can already tell that these two are going to have an extra special bond!
Ruthie — thank you so much for welcoming me into your home to capture this wonderful, joyful season for your family and that sweet sister bond between your two beautiful girls! Your new addition is absolutely perfect, and I am so, so thrilled for your family! I can’t wait to watch as your girls grow together over the coming years!
