FAMILY // Heidi, Leo + Exauce
This session is so dear to me. It's everything that I love about photography--its ability to freeze forever the most precious moments of our lives. For Heidi and Leo, it marks the fulfillment of countless prayers, tears and a relentless fight to call Exauce their son. For little Exauce, this is the beginning of life with his forever family.
Their's is no ordinary adoption story. Heidi and Leo waited 9 years to become parents and decided to pursue international adoption almost two years ago. They were matched with Exauce when he was only 4 months old, but due to Congolese border closures, the possibility that they would never bring their son home became very real. Their tireless fight to have the moments you see below is a testament to God's faithfulness and the power of relentless love.
