Catherine the Photographer

Recently Catherine has been taking photography classes with GanLu. We have enjoyed seeing Catherine's pictures and how she has evolved as a photographer. She has a great eye and loves taking picture of things in nature. Like many teenagers, she also loves taking selfies! We asked Catherine if we could share some of her pictures and she gladly said yes, so enjoy!

Transformation: Hannah


At the end of April in 2015 a little girl arrived a New Day Foster Home in need of heart surgery. She was 7 months old and we named her Josie.


Now, that little girl is 3 1/2 years old, full of life, and has been named Hannah by her forever family.


Hannah quickly stole her nannies' hearts with her huge smile. We loved watching her grow and we were able to see her personality shine as she grew more comfortable with her surroundings.





In August of 2015 Hannah was able to have the heart surgery she desperately needed. We were so glad that this sweet girl was now on the road to recovery.


After her surgery Hannah continued to blossom. It was an honor to watch her grow and to celebrate each milestone with her.




Hannah celebrated her first birthday and Christmas and shortly after she was able to join a local foster family.




Hannah thrived in her foster family and we loved seeing her when she came to visit with her foster mama.




After Hannah's 2nd birthday she was able to begin attending preschool. Hannah especially loved snack time!




In the past year we've seen Hannah grow even more. She has always been full of joy and we have watched her grow in confidence.




Her smile and giggle are contagious and are something that we will all miss as she leaves to join her forever family.





We are so excited for Hannah and know that her joy will only continue to spread as she joins her very own family.
