I love this family! I love my job and all of the families I work with, but also love when those clients become friends. The Morgans are a sweet, kind, beautiful family and I always love being around them. This year my 2 year old son and their sweet Aubrey are in the same preschool class. Aubrey told her mom that Jacob was her friend. “I yike him, mom. He is dee only boy dat can be my friend.” 🙂
Four and a half years ago their first child, Jonas, was born with a heart that had more wrong with it than right. He only lived five hours. We have incorporated pictures of Jonas in other sessions, but this time his sweet momma asked me if we could do something a little different. (See above image.)
Every year the American Heart Association chooses a person to basically dedicate their Heart Walk to or to honor at their event in April. 2016 IS JONAS’ YEAR! The NWA Heart Walk happening in April of 2016 is in honor of Jonas and I could not be more happy for the Morgans. Here is what his mommy wrote this week about the event:
“For a momma that longs to throw her baby a birthday party every year but doesn’t get to, who has days of longing for the whole world to stand still and just grieve with me, who desperately begs to know that Jonas is not forgotten….to be told by an organization that has a direct impact on situations like ours that they are going to honor him AND it’s going to be a birthday party…..there are no words to explain what that does for me and my family. Our hearts are overwhelmed and tears stream down our faces at the thought of what April 16, 2016 is going to be.”
They have started a Facebook page about the event which you can view here: JONAS IS WHY They are doing something REALLY neat to honor him right now and anyone can help…check out the Facebook page to participate.
Aubrey ADORES her little brother and was quick to comfort him when he got upset.
She has been kissing on him from the very beginning!
