Welcoming A Son | An Adoption Story

As I walked down the long hallways in the architecturally stunning Schuylkill County Courthouse, the anticipation for the coming event filled my heart all the way to the tippy-top.  With my youngest in tow, the beautiful story that was about to unfold in courtroom #4 made me a little teary eyed.  A small child has found his forever home.  Little Avery was welcomed into the Blatt family on April 30th after being in foster care (with this same sweet family) shortly after he was brought into this world.  This adoption hearing has to be one of the happiest events I have photographed to date.  A child welcomed into a family, forever.  Welcomed with open arms to such a loving home.  Not only does he have a new mom, dad, brother and sisters…but is now surrounded by SO many family members and friends (pictured below + more!) who will love him, protect him, care for him and provide for him his entire life!  So heart-warming and truly amazing.

It was such an honor to be able to witness and photograph such a special event for this family.  Congrats on becoming a family of SIX Matt & Leah! So incredibly happy for you all.  Especially for little Avery who has been brought into such a loving family.  Woohoo!
