"Not flesh of my flesh, Nor bone of my bone, But still miraculously my own. Never forget for a single minute,
You didn't grow under my heart - but in it"

Why do you go to Texas?

To get babies of course! Or at least that is what my kids think.

We got to visit Nancy and she has a new baby. A beautiful African- American baby boy. The kids fell in love. Each one of them ask me if baby B was ours and if we would keep him. They thought it was that simple. "He's cute. He's in need of a home. We have a home. Apparently we like kids. So we will take him now. Thanks." LOL

You know you have to love their hearts. They see a need and want to fill it. It is natural for them. That must be what Jesus meant when he said to be like these little ones and to have faith like a child. Nothing is impossible in their world. They don't see price tags just possibilities. Oh to be like them. This in no way means we are thinking of taking baby b home. I do not have that feeling, that urge or that calling right now. As I took pictures of him I found my calling. I want to photograph these orphans so when someone sees the pictures their hearts are moved to make a difference, to adopt or to sponsor an adoption or child. I just pray that I have the ability to do so.

Here are pictures of baby b. Who knows maybe he is your child?

Be blessed


  1. Oh oh oh!!! How adorable is he? I need to learn how to use my camera. I have a...ahem...event coming up and I NEED to learn how to get amazing pictures like you get of Noah and this little guy!

  2. Oh man! A heart melter! I will be praying for the right home for him/her.
