One Smile Closer: The Stavnes'

Jon and Kelsey did another fabulous photo shoot on our behalf. This time their beautiful subjects were the Stavnes' family. I have been reading Amy's wonderful blog since we started our adoption journey. I thought it was so cool when Kelsey told me she was going to take pics of this family. They brought their sweet son, Elijah home from Ethiopia this summer and Kelsey was able to take pictures of this family of six!

When we started our One Smile Closer fundraiser we just hoped that we would be able to take pictures of a few families from our church and raise a little money for our adoption. In just a few short months, we have taken pictures of families in our town in LA, as well as New Orleans, LA, Shreveport, LA, and Fort Worth, TX. Kelsey also got involved from the Nashville, TN area and we are so thrilled. We are so thankful to all of the families who are helping us get one step closer to our daughter! If you want to help by smiling for the camera, just let us know!
