Karis' photoshoot

Yesterday I got to take pictures of sweet Karis. I have a couple more posted over on my photoblog ( It was such a joy to spend the day with this beautiful little baby who was so very tolerant of all my poking and prodding. More pictures to come....

Eric left Uganda last night, so I'm on my own now. I have to say, it was hard to see him go, but it's only a week before I return. Praying right now for new adventures while I'm here and for things to do besides be at the kids home.

I got to visit the lovely Karis yesterday and finally got to hold her. Planning a photo shoot with the Boone family and one for baby Karis this week. I'm excited to have a chance to photograph them all and to get to do what I love (I haven't done much picture taking this trip and my camera is starting to collect dust).

Mores stories and pictures when I return.

Karis has arrived....

Welcome to Karis Annaleigh Boone. Born yesterday at 10:32am in Kampala, Uganda. Sweet Tamara labored for 36 hours, pushed for 5, and was a champ the whole time. So thankful to have been here to see this sweet baby coming into the world. Pictures to come later.

P.S. I would like to make known that I was the only person who said it would be a girl. :)

Finally Here

We've finally arrived in Uganda. It was a long awaited trip and I have to admit has not quite been what I expected. I'm happy to be here, but I've discovered that the adventure of living with a house full of kids is no longer fun. Eric and I are both staying at a children's home for kids with HIV. I love these kids and it's great to see them again, but they are exhausting.

We're still awaiting the phone call that tells us it's time to go to hospital for Tamara's baby to be born. Everytime our phone rings we both grab it in hopes that it's time. Not yet though. It's been fantastic getting to see Tamara and Jeremy again and we've loved getting to spend time with them.

Jeremy brought us out to Masese the other day, which, as usual, is a crazy and hard place to be, but I was glad to be there. More on that later though.

Well, that's all for now as I'm paying to use the internet.
