Heading west for some work for the last part of the week. Colorado and I get along just fine.⠀
This year mini sessions are happening both during the morning and late afternoon on October 19th (yes, I know that’s a Friday). Contact me to reserve one for yourself!
Here goes the second half of the week...
Pretty in pink
Three days weekend got us like....
The school schedule works out that this chickie gets home 45 minutes before anyone else. I love that I get a little alone time with my middle child each day.
We struck up a conversation with a fellow beach goer who shared they were considering adoption. They asked my thoughts on it. Here is what I now tell people. It may not be the most popular advice, but it’s my opinion... If you’re considering adoption, you need to know that contrary to popular belief, love and a safe home are not enough. When you adopt a child, you don’t just adopt them. Your adopting their past, their pain, their attachment issues, and their brokenness. Best case is keeping kids with moms; so when best case fails, it’s going to be a complicated mess in their hearts. Most times therapy, hard work, and patience are going to be crucial. I’m not saying it’s not worth it; but I really think we need less rosey adoption stories and more truth telling in this arena. And, I love my daughter. And she’s worth fighting for.
This child has to be forced to come out of the water at the end of the day.
