Happy Tay Day!! {Sunday Snapshot}

I truly cannot believe this day is here!!  Amanda received Taylor this afternoon at 12:00 noon.  It was an incredible emotional 2 1/2 hours as we met, ate with, and bonded with his Foster Family.  Saying goodbye was extremely hard on him, but thankfully, we have gotten many smiles and giggles out of this adorable little fella this evening!

Adoption truly is a miracle.  So thankful to have this little fella and his wonderful parents in our lives!

{The top two photos were taken with my 50mm f/1.4 lens.  My settings were f/2.2 1/320 (full window light from the back) ISO 720 (We had the room lights off, so his face was a little dark without ISO bumped up.)  It is SOOC- jet lag is putting editing on the back burner!  The second photo was taken by a sweet Holt worker, set in Auto ;).}
