I am utterly relieved that in this crazy world we live in, every now and then, there are news stories that truly, madly, and deeply restore my faith in humanity. Since today is Valentine's Day and it's all about love, I had to share this one with you.
When Latrell Higgins, an adopted 13 year old boy, lamented he had no baby pictures of himself, his adoptive mom, a professional photographer, staged a newborn shoot for him and shared the pics on FB. The results have been extremely positive and have opened a conversation about some people now wanting to adopt older kids, not just newborns ♥
What I love most about these photos is that even though he's a teenager his adoptive mom captured his innocence perfectly. And made him feel even more loved.
