I’ve heard many stories of loss over the years. I don’t think I’ve ever met a couple who has suffered more loss and heartache than Joe and Claudia. However, their faith and trust in God is truly inspiring. I cannot express in words just how thrilled I am for them to have this little beauty in their arms after what they’ve been though. I met them through Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep a little over a year ago and was thrilled when the contacted me about a session with their new baby girl. They requested a “Rainbow Baby” picture since they’d seen some other ones on my blog. I love how it turned out.
I asked them if I could share the meaning of her name…I just love it. The meaning of her middle name made me tear up after all they’ve been through.
