Something Beautiful


It's just an ordinary moment... no flashy smiles, no picturesque background. But, this photo made me break down and weep with joy and thanksgiving. Dear Susan and Randy have their precious babies in their arms. Elijah and Sophia have a Forever Family now. Praise You, Lord Jesus!

(This shot was taken by their brother-in-law, Mark Jacobs, a television and film director in LA who is with them in Ethiopia filming a documentary about the Clarks' Ethiopian adoption journey. How incredible!)

Hey Laurie-I had a similar moment when I saw this picture. Isn't it amazing how one photograph can say so much. By the way I hope I look half as put together as Susan when I travel half way across the world!

Nothing makes me happier than seeing little ones and their parents come together!!! What an amazing photo.

Just an everyday moment of a family - but not really, there is so much going on behind what the naked eye tells your brain... Thanks for sharing this really neat photo, bless them!
