In the spring, shortly after Brian and I began the paper chase phase of our adoption, I met the Galindo family through their adoption blog. Then I found out that we live close-ish to each other, and I got together with Nell Ann. We talked about all sorts of things during our dinner together. Mostly, we talked about their adoption of this cutie pie:
At the time, they were just a couple weeks away from traveling to pick up their beautiful son.
One of the other things we talked about over dinner that night was my photography business (Starshine Photography). Recently, Nell Ann asked me if I would photograph their family. Of course, I was happy to! Whenever I get to meet a child adopted from Ethiopia, it is such an honor, and so encouraging to me as I wait for my own child(ren) to join our family.
Here's their little guy in his Halloween costume:
And he's already learning to play jingle bells!
