Before we got married we discussed a mutual desire to foster and agreed that it would be a part of our story. Now, almost nine years later, we’re in the midst of foster training classes and the stories we hear are heart wrenching. But, there is always hope, a possibility for a story to end in redemption. We had the privilege to photograph this sweet, smiling face last spring as her adoptive parents celebrated her joining their forever family. The joy on her face is contagious.
