Her First Photo Shoot

We had a gift certificate for photos from a dear friend.
We have had it since bringing our treasure home, but I never thought she would be able to handle a photo shoot.  A new place, sitting on foreign objects in front of strange backgrounds, and trying to get her to smile seemed like inviting a meltdown and so I have never attempted to do the photo shoot.
Never tried until today..
My word friends, this momma just cried through the whole thing.
She rocked this place like the star she is and you would have never known how hard this last fifteen months has been for her if you were just happening by and saw her.
 She smiled.
 She laughed.
 She held the strange props the photographer gave to her.
 She screamed with delight while momma jumped around like a monkey.
 She LOVED the flashing lights.
She took a little time to hula hoop.
She made some silly faces.
 And then she made some more.
 She stole the show with her sweetness.
 And she left this momma saying MIRACLE under her breath as we were leaving.
Today the words of the official in her country were ringing in my ears.
I wish they could see our treasure now.
She is growing more and more into the little lady God intends her to be.
With an overflowing heart, I was praising God all the way home.
