Known for years. Loved since I met. Absolutely no one like them.
Barton and Heather Pickens.
Within the last two years God has been doing something very, very special within my friend's lives. Unbeknownst to them until recently, their little story will be involving a special addition into their family. One that could not be any more welcomed.
My dear friends will be adopting.
Some people build corporations, some firms, other's build other people's dreams...
Well, these two will be building a child's life.
One who could otherwise have been... without.
When Barton approached me about sharing their story I was beyond thrilled. To be a part of what God is building in another friend's life, there is no greater joy. I loved his creativity to help share their news with friends and family. They were full of ideas and thoughts on how to best share their news so we set a date and headed to downtown Baton Rouge to capture their story.
It is a step of faith they are stepping but it one they wholeheartedly feel they need to move into. So we got together to share their news that they would be adopting a Baby Girl Pickens within their next year!
They have absolutely ZERO idea what state she will come from, or who her family is now or the color of her hair or the tone of her skin but they know this... she will be theirs and she will be loved.
I can not express enough how joyful I am for this darling, little family to begin! After much prayer and waiting and seeking they fully are prepared for the journey that lies before them. And I can't express enough how much they deserve it!
This little duo is about to become a trio and there is just no amount of anything that can hold their joy back!!!
This little bebe to be, whether still in the womb, not even here yet or almost to her birthday, will be totally and outrageously loved and cared for by these two.... forever...
I just love documenting families and now families to be!
So here's to a remarkable journey for a remarkable couple that will ultimately change all three of their lives forever and ever. Amen.
