adoption story | columbus, ga | ker-fox photography | tigner

I’ve been able to photograph each one of the sweet kiddos in the Hawk family… and nothing could’ve made me happier than being asked to come along to photograph them bringing their daughter home from China. It was a LONG road to get to this point. Adoption is not for the faint of heart. It’s grueling, it’s exhausting, it will make you pull strength from parts of your body you didn’t know you could. It’s messy. BUT adoption is beautiful, it’s rewarding, it’s love in the unconditional form, it’s parenthood.
I could barely hold it together as we all waited in anticipation. Will and Karan Anne’s phones were turned off, their was no way of knowing how close they were to coming up the arrivals escalator. My hands were sweating, my chest was flushed… and then there they were.

A crowd of their closest friends, their biggest cheerleaders were there to greet this little girl SO many had prayed for, for SO long. She was finally here!

The brother’s expressions are just too much. They were just as excited to see their sister, as they were to have mom and dad home!

    I must express thanks to this writer for rescuing me from such a circumstance. After surfing around through the internet and meeting things which were not beneficial, I was thinking my life was done. Being alive without the answers to the issues you have sorted out through this posting is a serious case, as well as ones that would have in a wrong way affected my entire career if I hadn’t come across your web site. Your personal capability and kindness in taking care of everything was priceless. I am not sure what I would’ve done if I had not discovered such a step like this. I can at this time look forward to my future. Thank you so much for your expert and effective guide. I will not think twice to recommend the website to anybody who should get assistance on this area.
