welcoming sadie | an adoption story

Last year, Sadie Caroline was in Bulgaria waiting for her forever family, and a few weeks ago I photographed her with her forever family. . .3 brothers and a loving mama and daddy.  She wore her baptism gown, lovingly sewed by her grandmother and even trimmed in her grandmother's wedding dress lace and was smothered in love the entire time I shot.
