  • Through Amber’s Eyes

    My name is Amber, I am married to my hubby Steve and we have three boys, Reid {4}, Eli {3} and Henry {1.5}. We recently started the adoption process to find our daughter and most of the posts you will see will be about our family or updates on the adoption. My family needs me present with them at this time, so I will take portrait sessions occasionally when it works well for us :)


Hi everyone…well, this blog has been silent for far, far too long, so I figured that adopting a daughter is a great way to start getting in the habit of blogging again.

It is with great joy that we announce that we will adopt a daughter in the near future!! We started working with Christian Adoption Consultants at the end of August, and are starting our home study soon. Our consultant, Leah, has been a great help and is such an encourager. Leah and her husband recently adopted, so it’s a great comfort to know that she knows what we are feeling and has been through all the paperwork, emotions and twists and turns that we will be diving into.

Be sure to check back here for updates along our journey!


Day 126- Henry {18 weeks old}


Henry was giggling when I brushed my hair on his face…what a sweetheart

This is a common scene in our house.

Henry spits up and we just turn him towards the floor.

Don’t worry, we pick it up:)

I told Reid that I got him a butterrum muffin from Hannaford and he said, ‘ Oh yes! A butter crumb muffin! I love butter crumbs!” <3



Eli woke up at 4am.

He kicked us for 2 hours until we had to get up.

He then promptly fell asleep on the couch.

He’s still cute, despite the early wake up.
