The Skeens Family
This is the Skeens Family and for some of those who know this sweet family, knows what all they have endured this past year. Some ups and some downs, but they never gave up hope. I found out about this family through one of our past brides. She had posted that some dear friends of hers had lost everything in a fire but the family and their pets were all safe. (Thank God for His protection!!!) If anyone had anything to donate please let her know. I quickly asked for sizes of the kids. They were smaller than my kids and I had already given away those sizes a few years past. I took a few minutes to think and pray for this family, I didn't know, and asked God how could I help. So I sent their friend Jennifer a message and said that I would LOVE to donate a family photo session to this family for when they are ready. A couple of months go by and I hear from Hillary. She was as sweet as can be. We made arrangements for the session and I drove out to their property in Sugar Grove. It was beautiful. Their family was so beautiful. Their fur babies were so very cute too! I introduced myself and talked for a few minutes and we got started. They were all so kind during the whole time but I think what moved me the most was when we finished and Hillary handed me a card and thanked me. I said my goodbyes and drove away. I stopped at the end of the road and opened the card. I started to cry. Here is this family going through all they have gone through and I wanted to bless and give to them and I'm opening the card and they gave back to me. Unexpectedly! Unselfishly! They gave to me and it touched my heart so much! I soon got home and worked on the session and loved every shot we got! The love they have for each other. The bond they have that has gotten them through these tough times is amazing! I pray that God will continue to pour out His love and blessings to the Skeens family and that their days ahead are brighter and brighter!
