I was contacted recently by a family who needed photos ASAP for their adoption portfolio which just went from inactive status to active, and I am so happy I got to be a small stop on this wonderful journey for them. They are just the cutest little family of three, looking to adopt for the second time. Their son Rowan and I became instant BFFs as he guided me around Garfield Park Conservatory, helping me with my shots. :) If a greenhouse is good for the soul; a conservatory like this one is pretty much the be-all and end-all of seasonal sanctuaries. There was so much oxygen flowing through this place I got dizzy (with pure joy). Everyone needs to visit this beautiful haven. And donate, so we can keep it as lovely as it is now. I wish this family all the luck with finding their new baby!!
