I have been working with a very special organization here in town over the past couple of months to bring a goal to life that I’ve had for a very long time. It all started with me wanting to give back, give back in some way to our community. Then it hit me.
I woke up one morning 2 1/2 years ago to an email whose subject read : It’s a boy! My very dear friend and her husband had been blessed with a beautiful newborn baby boy through adoption. I will never forget that morning and the tears of joy for them. So I contacted her and tossed around the idea of donating my time to families who have adopted through the organization that she was a part of. And the rest is history. It makes my heart so happy that these families that have been blessed with the most beautiful gift will not have to worry about the financial burden of having newborn photos taken, something so special that they will have forever.
Meet Levi and his parents:
Mom and Dad met at Oklahoma State University where they both attended and graduated college. They have been married for 6 1/2 years and after 3 1/2 years of marriage they began their journey to parenthood. After spending lots of time with doctors, they learned that they were not able to have a biological child. God led them to adoption. After searching and researching, they found Crisis Pregnancy Outreach through a friend, such an amazing organization. On December 1, 2011, they were blessed with precious Levi; they are forever grateful that Levi’s birth mom chose them to parent Levi and love her so much. He is their first child and the first grandchild on both sides and they look forward to all good times and memories ahead. The love they have for Levi is indescribable.
