We never quite know what it is that God gives us, why He choses certain things for our lives. But we have faith that His plan is for us, that He loves us so much and He knows what is best. And so we believe that He makes all things happen for our good. The wonderful thing about God’s love is: even when we’re feeling down and we have moments when we question His motives, He still loves us.
There are so many things I want to say about this session, this person, this family. They are courageous, they are faithful, they are hopeful. She is amazing, she is a fighter, she is a beautiful little girl who God sent here for a purpose. Her sisters are wonderful. The oldest is such a sweet sweet girl who seems to be a little mother hen. The middle sister is full of life and character and beautiful grins. The love that mom and dad have for each other and their girls is so evident.
This family. They’ve changed me. They have me on my knees for them; for her. I am so beyond humbled that they asked me to photograph them; to capture this important moment in their lives.
If you haven’t heard of them, you can read sweet Layla’s story at http://www.LaylaGrace.org or follow them on Twitter: @LaylaGrace. And please, if you feel the need to drop on your knees for them, please join me in praying for peace, strength, faith, comfort and a miracle.
