This was a very special session for this sweet family I love. Christopher, or "Chip," as most of us call him, just passed his one year mark since his heart transplant. I first met his parents, Nicki and Jordan, when we were all young, college-attending newlyweds at an apartment complex in Provo. Jordan was our home teacher - and he was so diligent about coming by each month and more often in between to check in on us. Nicki was the organizer of fun events and a dinner-sharing group that saved our evening meal plans more than once. They are now the amazing parents to 4 energetic boys.
We've been so blessed to keep in contact with them over the years and I remember the day Nicki told me she was pregnant, because I was so excited we'd be having babies about the same time. However, she quickly told me there were concerns with his heart and we cried a bit together, still happy for the joy a baby brings, but worried about his health. I still remember getting "THE CALL" from her last summer when they found out a donor heart was available. Today, as I edited these photos, I said a little prayer for that donor family and another prayer of gratitude that Chip's family has been able to have this time with him.
