Sweet Baby "M"--the full post

This little guy is so very special! Not that all little bundles of joy aren't special... but Matthew has a story to tell about his little life. He was born with a serious infection and had to be hospitalized for quite a while. His parents were so devoted and so hopeful during such a difficult time... their spirit was an encouragement to all of us who know them. It is such a blessing for Matthew to finally be home with his mama and daddy. He is now a healthy, happy, sweet little boy. Matthew's parents are advocates for Compassion International... an organization that provides for basic needs of children in less fortunate parts of the world. Had Matthew been born in one of these countries he certainly would not have survived. They are passionate about helping all children receive the basic necessities and care we are so blessed to have here. After talking with Matthew's parents I decided to make a huge change with my business. Now, 10% of all my profits will be going to help Compassion International. Jimmy and I already have an adopted child through World Vision, but this is a way that I can give back and glorify the Father through my business. Thanks to Matthew and his parents for being such advocates and for reminding us how blessed we truly are. He was such a joy to photograph. Hope you enjoy the rest of his photos!
