Superhero Minis (Portraits for Logan)| Round 2 | Rochester, NY | May 17
So many people were disappointed they missed round one of superhero minis, so we decided to do another day of sessions! All profits will be donated to TC and Danielle Fantigrossi in the adoption of their second son, Logan, from South Korea. If you want to read more of their story, click here
The bottom left photo is Landon, their first son, adopted in 2011 from Taiwan. He has been such an amazing blessing to his family, and I know Logan joining their family will be double the blessing.
But, here is Danielle’s most recent post to their site- I couldn’t say it better myself.
Waiting is hard. I don’t say that lightly at all. We have been through this waiting period before. We know that its all worth it ten fold in the end. That every moment of the horrible wait is worth it… every moment! We know that God has his hand on this adoption and that it works out in His perfect timing…. BUT the waiting is still hard. I go on day by day and yes this time around I have a busy three yr old to keep me on my toes… but it doesn’t change the fact that I miss my son… yes MY son… yes I MISS HIM… even though I have yet to meet him personally. He is very much a part of our family and we are missing a HUGE part of our family without him here. I know that the adoption journey is a rollercoaster of emotions… and this is one of the down moments. Adoption makes you very vulnerable- I mean by this point we have to be a complete open book to any info anyone needs to know. The social workers, the psychiatrists, the doctors, the banks, the list goes on and on. We signed up for this… we knew this going in… this isn’t our first time on this journey. All this we are in the “know” but the wait is still hard. I want Logan to be home with us, I want to see his smiles–not just in pictures, I want to hear his giggles, to see him playing with his older brother…. I just want him here! This week marks our 6 months post referral. 6 months… 1/2 a year!!!… and the time period is not looking any shorter than when we first started. Courts have slowed down, new regulations are being set, and we are stuck waiting for EP submission… then EP approval… then finally a court date— and it doesn’t end there… then we have to wait for a preliminary approval and final approval… then we can go and bring home our son. Adoption is not for the faint of heart.
With the new regulations we did find a psychiatrist that will administer test needed in mid May for us. We are looking forward to this LONG testing to be over and translated paperwork be sent over to Korea.
With all that said… please keep our family in your prayers… this is tough stuff…and the wait feels long.
I hope you will consider booking a session, and helping TC, Danielle and Landon bring Logan home!
