I was introduced to this precious family by a local Sunday School class fundraiser in the form of a Murder Mystery/Italian Dinner Cafe evening to benefit this sweet girl who is overcoming some health challenges. She is so strong and brave and I cannot say enough about the admiration I hold for all of them who have walked this journey. I wanted to meet this little girl and capture her smile when she felt well and to give her parents a few updated photos of them together. God blessed us and we were able to schedule our park play date photo session for a beautiful late spring afternoon. We made the most of every moment of our time together! My son accompanied me to the park that day and he is the one who was able to bring out the bursts of giggles and laughter that you “hear” in the pictures! He played peekaboo with stuffed animals, made silly faces, and was so cheerful and fun that we were all laughing and having a great time! I couldn’t have captured these photos without him! She giggled and posed with daddy, skipped rocks and blew bubbles with mommy, and beamed smiles at her surprise guest. Thousands of people are praying for this darling girl and recently a race was held in her honor, as you will see below. The special friend of the family who coordinated much of the race details, surprised them with a yummy cookie cake decorated for the occasion to match the race t-shirts they all wore. I will always remember this day and I am so thankful and blessed that I was able to meet this family!
