This family has a piece of my heart, and her name is Amara. Amara has been in the Sunday School class I teach since I began. She has taught me much about life, laughter, sparkles and the joy of “Annie” songs during Sunday school, after we learn about God of course. Her smile and laugh are contagious. She has taught my boys about loving without limits, about dancing on Sunday mornings. She has my Drew wrapped around her finger, he knows the craft closet at church inside and out due to her requests…sparkles, purple things, glue and more sparkles. She has taught my Jack how to dance with someone in a wheelchair, she has taught him about bringing others joy. She has taught my little Max to have no fear of those in wheelchairs, to love those around you no matter what. My heart if forever grateful for this girl.
I love their family story. I love that her parents chose her to be theirs…that God brought them together. I hope you can feel the PURE joy in these images.
