In the Picture


I have a secret to tell about this picture, taken last November.  When I first saw this picture I thought about how beautiful the leaves were and how I love the sun streaming through the trees.  I love that my family is all holding hands and that if you look hard enough, you can see a smidge of my big smile.  But I never told anyone all I could think about is how I thought a little boy would fit between me and Lexi. He would even us out, fit perfectly. 

And looking back, I love that this picture looks like we’re headed off together on a journey, with God’s warm presence over our path.  We didn’t decide and announce we’d adopt until late January this year but this shows he’s been in the picture for much longer.


  1. I love this! It’s probably one of my favorite pictures of your family!

  2. This is beautiful Amy. I love the photo.

  3. awww I’m getting so excited!!

  4. I puffy heart that photo of you guys! That whole photo session includes a few of my all-time favourites. :)

    I’m with Heather: So excited for all you. As an adoptee myself, it warms my heart to know how much love you already have for the little boy who will be joining your family. Can’t wait to meet him.

  5. Like you’re setting off on a journey? Beautiful. And it’s such a fabulous photo, too!

  6. Once he becomes part of your family you should have her take his picture walking through the leaves at the dairy barn and impose it with this image. heart. Can’t wait.

  7. Fantastic! This brought tears to my eyes!
