I’m so happy to have photographed Carolyn and Cary for this years Mothers Who Inspire exhibit on May 2nd from 2:00 till 4:00 at the Congregational Church of South Glastonbury. Please join us and meet all these amazing mothers and their special children. Every story is heart wrenching and very inspiring. I’m so proud that my photographic work can educate and bring joy to the community.
Below is a small piece from Carolyn and Cary’s story:
“We sat him on the carpet in the living room. He needed pillows to keep him up straight. We left toys around him but he seemed uninterested. No crying no smiling no eye contact, no affect, not the sparkle you see in him today! We sat there getting to know his background. Watching him and feeling confused. Then Chris rolled him the ball. He erupted in a fit of laughter and pushed it back. Whatever we saw in that moment sealed the deal. Chris and I looked at each other and said “he’s ours”, we needed him and he needed a family.
He needed us!”
