Photos of Adoptive Parents Meeting Their Newborn Daughter Express the True Gift of Life

Kristen Anne Photography

A professional newborn photographer and the friend of an adoptive couple posted images this week which are going viral on Facebook. Most birth photography is of the birth parents and their newborn. These photos show not only the miracle of birth, but also the miracle of life and of love.

David and Sarah, a Christian couple from Montana, yearned for a third child to complete their family. After a difficult first two pregnancies, which brought sons Zakary (six) and Levi (three; born with┬áSpina bifida), the couple decided that their third, who they hoped would bring some ‘pink’ to their household, would be a girl.

They threw fundraising dinners and prayed, and soon, their prayers were answered when a mother in Florida decided to give her daughter the gift of life. The couple brought along their friend Kristin Anne for when they picked up their daughter, Tilly Pearl from the hospital in which she was born. The photos are breathtaking, and the comments from birth moms, adoptive moms, and the kids of adoption make the entire album worth a deep dive.



The comments on the album and the photos are equally heartwarming. Here are a few:
