A few months ago, Jenn entered her family into our special portrait giveaway. Her family’s story was so moving, that I just knew I had to meet them. (Read their story here!) Mari was adopted by the Murray family a few years ago. What makes this such a special adoption is that Mari has Down Syndrome. Many people who have children who are born with Down Syndrome wonder why such a thing would happen to them, their baby, their life. However, the Murrays chose Mari. They handpicked her. They know what many of us who have been blessed by having someone with Down Syndrome in our lives know. They know that although there will be challenges in the future, their life will forever be filled with singing, dancing, caring, and an unconditional love that can’t be beat by your own imagination. I was so blessed to spend the evening with this wonderful family. I hope you enjoy!
