When people start their adoption journey, one of the most common fears I see is the anticipation leading up to the home study. I was no exception to this fear. The idea of having someone possess the ability to dash my hopes and dreams of becoming a parent again was terrifying. What if they didn’t like my furniture? What if my personality rubbed them wrong? What if they saw the dust I forgot to wipe off the ceiling fan? What if I had too many pets? A million what ifs. So what is a home study?

Something I have recently been proud to take on is volunteering for my county’s Children’s Services. The children that are waiting for their forever homes were in great need of updated profile pictures for the adoption website. As a photographer and adoptive mother, what better way to donate my time and ability than to provide them with new portraits! Now that I have photographed a lot of them, I want to share them with you. If you are looking to expand your family and have love and nurturing to provide. I hope you will consider these wonderful children!
For more information on the children listed below, please contact Butler County Children’s Services and speak to a social worker or adoption specialist. Please share this page with everyone you know. We need to find these wonderful kids their forever homes. While I had the pleasure of spending time with them for their portraits, I learned just how wonderful these kids are. Yes, they may need some special care to adjust to a new environment, but they are loving, polite and charismatic kids who eagerly want to be adopted!
