I truly believe their are certain people put on this earth to show others how to handle difficult situations in life.
People that are tested over and over again to see how much their heart can take. People that are tested to turn something so very heart wrenching into an inspiring story of faith.
This beautiful and strong family. They are one of those people. They are true warriors.
In March of 2014 they lost their sweet baby Ezra so very close to delivering, and this year they gave birth to the most precious gift.
I remember following their story and fighting back sobbing tears as I saw the pain they had to endure.
Everyone grieves in their own way, and to see this family openly share their honest feelings about the reality of suffering was just so amazing.
This family has helped so many people cope during difficult times without even knowing it. I will always look up to their beautiful testimony and incredible strength.
At newborn sessions I’m intrigued by the names families choose and if there is any significant meaning behind them.
When George and Amiee shared their strong and powerful names of their beautiful children, I was left feeling so inspired to share.
Judah, their first born, means praise and their is no doubt this little dude is passionate about praise and worship.
The Lion of Judah is also another name of Jesus. Judah is fierce, and strong, and brave. He is always telling his parents that he has a lion inside his heart. How awesome is that!?!
Ezra, their second baby, means help. This family experienced God as their refuge and their help in the season of loss.
Shiloh, their third blessing, means His gift, Peaceful one. It was a significant battle site in the Civil War and a significant place in the Bible.
They shared with me that, “Shiloh is no doubt our redeeming gift from our good Father, our peace in the battlefield.
The promise that God is faithful and works for our good, redeeming what has been lost. We are experiencing that fully in our Shiloh.”
Just look at these beautiful faces. They are at peace, and it was the most amazing experience to capture it on camera.
Thank you for sharing your brave hearts and faith with us. So much love goes out to you!
