The Day Silas Was Born

There is a special feeling that comes over me, when I witness and take part in something holy, in a sacred space. There is a desire to keep it close to my heart, in a secret place tucked away.. Tending to it with the same love and holiness that was entrusted to me.

Of all the love in my heart for this family, and of all that I could tell you of their story.. I will to leave it to these images - to show you my heart, and to share with you the beautiful beginnings of an incredible journey..
