On Tuesday night, I had the honor of going to the airport with a family to meet their daughter, adopted from Korea, for the first time. I knew the minute that I took this picture that no matter what else I captured that night or the rest of this week, this would be my 52 | 12 image. This is Claire looking through the window as the plane that her baby girl was on pulled up to the gate.
She’d been dreaming and praying for this moment for the last twenty-seven months. I think her face says it all.
