‘Celebrate we will, for life is short but sweet for certain’

Friends of my family (Carrie and Mike Martin) are in the process of adopting a little girl from China.   After 5 long years on the waiting list they have FINALLY been matched with their beautiful little girl!!    They anticipate being able to bring her home by the end of next month.  I can hardly believe that it is all coming together and that they are finally going to have the little girl that they have dreamed of for so long.

I’ve decided to do a little fundraiser to assist with the travel costs that Carrie and Mike will face when traveling to China to bring home their new daughter.  For the next month I am donating 100% of all proceeds from my fine art photo sales.   To view and purchase prints please go to www.recreateit.etsy.com.   The holidays are right around the corner and art prints make great gifts .. all while helping out the Martin’s!       —– Scroll down to see photos of the adorable Martin Family and to read a letter from Carrie.

All prints are available in additional sizes so just email me with any special requests or questions … stevie@stevieTphotography.com

Here is a small sample of available prints:   more prints will be added daily so check back often.   Start shopping here!

The Martins:

My husband and I have been “Waiting Parents” since the day we signed our application at the adoption agency back in November 2005.  Coming up on our 5 year WP anniversary, we just got our referral!  She is just a doll, looks happy and healthy, and we are hoping to bring her home sometime in November. She is now at the SWI of Yugan County in Jiangxi.

We are incredibly excited not only about our opportunity to add a wonderful little girl to our family, but also about our chance to give her a family.

You may also know, or can imagine, how incredibly expensive international adoption and international travel can be.  As we have been on this journey for close to five years now, we have invested a lot of money already, and have even more hefty expenses on the horizon.

With countless renewals, as well as a few job losses and changes along the way, our costs have multiplied well beyond our original estimates.

Thank you very much for your consideration and support.  We really, really appreciate it.


Carrie & Mike
