"Family is a circle of Strength, founded on Faith, joined in Love and kept together by God, together Forever. "
The Shari family is a very special family.
Naomi and Ben, have always wanted to be parents. After several attempts to conceive they discovered their only shot at conceiving would be to do IVF. They saved up for several years to try for one session. While enduring this heartache, Naomi and Ben knew in their hearts they wanted to help children and they wanted to be foster parents. The very night they received their license they got a phone call about a 2 month old named Logan that needed a home. They accepted immediately and prepared for this baby to come into their home. A few months passed and they welcomed two more children into their home, a 3 year old and a baby girl, both of which were re-united with their families and they are still in regular contact. Shortly after this Naomi and Ben were called to the hospital for a new born just brought into the world that very same night. In June Naomi and Ben signed papers that state Logan is their son and 6 months ago they signed papers stating baby Noah is their son! They have another little one, only 6 months, and the path is being paved for Naomi and Ben to adopt him as well.
Through 7 years of pain and heart ache Naomi and Ben always said, “God knows what’s going on”. She had every reason to doubt and she didn’t. 7 years later they have a house full of boys and now are looking to adopt two more – Noah's biological brothers who are in a group home. 5 and 11 years old. Naomi's sister Tabitha nominated Naomi and Ben for my One Deserving Family Session Giveaway and she said "My sister is a mom. She has a family – something she thought she never would. It didn’t come the way she planned, but it came. She is a warrior, a lover, a pillar of strength and faith, and more importantly a mom. I nominate her for a family photo session. For Naomi there could be nothing better than having those pictures in her home, on her walls, and in the homes of her family"
I am so honored to be able to help a family so deserving fill their home with family pictures and hopefully in the near future take some more when they welcome more children into their wonderful and loving home!
