I had the most wonderful time recently with a lovely lady who was celebrating the publication of her new book. It's titled "In Search of My True Identity: A Journey from Disillusionment and Despair to Hope and Fulfillment" by Suzanne H. Fabbi M.Ed.
From her author page: "In this book, Suzanne relives her journey of seeking answers, describing the circumstances, challenges, heartache, and the hope associated with giving a child up for adoption and fulfilling the dreams of a barren couple. Told through the eyes of multiple personas—her birth mother, her adoptive parents, and herself—the author provides a record, partly fictionalized, of the ordeal that families go through when going through adoption."
What an achievement, and I love the joy you can see so clearly in her eyes at having completed it.
One great takeaway from this shoot: bringing special mementos or family heirlooms is a great way to make your session personal to you.
These little boots are how her father announced to her mother that they had been given the opportunity to adopt a baby girl!
It’s a story with many ups and downs that she chronicles in her newly-released autobiographical book, and she wanted to have a photo shoot to celebrate all that hard work and have for promotional purposes, ️so I was more than happy to oblige.
Congratulations on this wonderful achievement!
