Well, my heart can't get enough of these Gotcha Day Stories, and maybe yours won't either. Another beautiful family beginning, and as always, I leave the session somewhat a wreck with lots of used tissues stuffed in my bag and pockets. The sweet foster mom, who is the live-in ayi at this orphanage, was clearly so attached and full of love for this sweet boy, and it was both heartbreaking and beautiful to watch her hand him over to his forever family. What a gift she has given him, to love him and care for his every need and to know him so intimately as she clearly did... but to generously and graciously give him over, in the sense that she tried not to make it hard for him or for the parents and seemed to have really prepped him for this day. I call this day the Beautiful Hard.
