Dog Photographer Adrian Hitt Commercial Pet Photographer Stock »

We interrupt this program…

… to bring you a personal story. Some of you know that I spent last weekend in Oklahoma City to be with my family during a monumentous event! I know this is a dog site, but if you don’t mind, I’d like to share some personal images as I am a very proud aunt! 😛  My sister and brother-in-law made the great decision to adopt 2 1/2 years ago. There are an estimated 132 million orphans in the world (with the majority of those being in Africa), and I am so proud they chose to be a part of the solution. So after a 2 1/2 year wait, they flew to Ethiopia early April. After a L-ONNNG 17 hour flight back to the States, last Friday we all got to meet their most precious, beautiful daughter Abigail. She is 11 months old and the light of their world! Abigail has such an incredibly sweet temperament and spunky personality. I’ve missed her all of this week! Without further ado, meet my niece, miss Abigail…

They FINALLY landed!

She did so great meeting the 30 plus family and friends who came to the airport to meet her!

My favorite family photo of them…

Abigail, although very sweet, can be quite serious.

Wearing her traditional Ethiopian dress. Such a little princess!

And, my favorite of her!
