I never know where to start when it comes to writing about good friends. I feel like there is so much I could say; so much I SHOULD say. When people make such a significant impact on your life, it’s hard to put it into words sometimes.
Brittany has become such an amazing friend over the past 3 years. We meet up for ‘girl time’ at least once a month and talk about everything from photography, marriage, the Lord, new milestones, and struggles. Brittany has seen me laugh and seen me cry.
We’ve been there for each other through some really amazing times and some really hard times, and she has definitely left a footprint on my heart.
Over the past 18 months, I have had the pleasure of watching her + her husband John’s adoption journey from the application all the way until now; as they are about to celebrate their son Cruz’s first birthday.
Their story, their faith and their undeniable obedience to the Lord has been incredibly impactful to Joe + I personally and many others as well.
Brit+John are the kind of people you want in your corner. And I’m so blessed that they are in mine.
And even more so, that they are in Cruz’s…
Here are the two people who so faithfully acted on their call to adopt…
…which ultimately lead to them bringing their son Cruz into their lives :). I.could.just.steal.him!!!
And now they are a sweet family of three (and the cutest one ever, right??!)
My heart smiles when I see the joy that radiates from each one of the Hagensens. They are blessed and they know it!
Fun with daddy!
Fun with his sweet mama :)
This cupcake was Cruz’s first taste of refined sugar. He was an instant fan :)
I LOVE THIS FAMILY!!!!
I’ll end with a collage of Cruz wearing a hat (or attempting to anyway) :)
Happy soon-to-be Birthday Cruzer! We love you :) xoxo
