What is it like to adopt a baby? Take a look at this beautiful series of photos that captures one family’s incredible story.
Beautiful photos capture joy of adopting a baby
For almost six months, professional photographer Kate T. Parker has trained the lens on her extended family as her sister and brother-in-law welcomed long-awaited son Sam. Her “Blended” project documents everything from hospital introductions to candid moments of Sam crying, sleeping and being nurtured by his adoring family. The results are gorgeous.
“I knew as soon as they decided to adopt that this was something so difficult and wonderful at the same time. I thought it might be interesting for others to see, as well as Sam when he is older to know how much he was wanted and celebrated when he got here,” Parker, who is based in Georgia, USA, tells Babyology.
Now their story is being told around the world through her images. “This was such an amazing experience for my whole family. We love that kid so much and as his aunt, to see my sister and her husband so very happy is the best part,” Parker says.
If you want to see what unbridled joy and unconditional love look like, these photos are about as close as you’ll get.
