Easter Pictures at the Duck Pond

Sarah Jayne Ames (see her website at sarahjaynesphotos.com) took pictures of the baby for her final project, and wanted to take our family pictures as well… but it has taken us this long to have a healthy baby and warm enough temperatures to take some outside family pictures.  She was very patient with us, and I am so grateful!  I love them!

My favorite part, though?  This duck pond is where Nathan and I first met, and where we got engaged!  It is very tender for me that this is where we took our first for-realz all-adoptive family pictures.





About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper. This is not an official Web site of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

    • We do love them, for sure, and our love is true! It might be thrown up oatmeal that’s glowing, though?!
