Meet Sophia

Discussion in 'People' started by Django, Jul 15, 2008.

  1. She has just come to her new home here in the US from Russia.
    Our friends have been nearly a year adopting her from the Russian orphanage were she has spent most of her life.
    She is a real sweatheart!
    I snapped a few shots this morning while she was out playing in the yard.

    Wow...how sweet is that?
     
  3. What a doll she is! I commend your friends for such a wonderful gift that they will give her. I am no expert, but I know there are many little ones around the world who need the love and security of good parents. God bless them and little Sophia
     
  4. Thanks Seneca and Enrod13 for the kind words,
    The new parents are two very special people.
    It breaks your heart to hear them talk about their visits to the orpanages.
    Several young boys and girls asking them over and over if they are their new parents.
    I could only imagine the dissapointment of these young children.
    Sophia is a very lucky girl!
    Thanks for looking....Ted B

  7. Thanks Arto,
    Still trying to learn the focus sweet spot of the 85/1.4.
    The first shot was with the 28-70/2.8 "Old Faithful" :smile:



    Thanks for the kind words Greg!
    These children are also lucky to now have the access to health care from Doctors like yourself.
    From reading your post here I would bet you are a great caring Doctor!
    If i lived in your area you would for sure be my childs health care provider!
