This warms the heart

It’s a fine morning out here. 🙂

A lot of people are posting about Valentine’s Day and VD related stuff on their Facebook statuses and I think its fine, but what really strikes me is this post about “Newborn” photography. Not of an actual baby but of a12-year-old boy named Latrell. The boy’s wish to have his “baby” pictures taken was granted by his mom photographer, Ms. Kelli Higgins.

Latrell was adopted by the Higgins when he was 10, which explains why he doesn’t have baby pictures. The pictures became viral along with the message that the photographer (Higgins) wants to convey, which is to generate awareness about adopting older children.

Here’s Latrell’s picture I borrowed from http://twentytwowords.com. The photo goes with the caption from his Ma.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
