Sabrina Adopted

Posted in Uncategorized by Clay Willis on March 8, 2011

I love covering stories like this. On national adoption day I headed over to the West Palm court-house to shoot the festivities and what not. They had clowns and magic and Chick-fil-A. Clowns are terrifying but Chick-fil-A is delicious. Mostly It was what you’d expect. Lost and huddled children, parents uncertain what they felt, overzealous coordinators and volunteers, all except one girl. Sabrina seemed completely unimpressed with the design and formality of the day. She basically just did whatever seemed best and her buoyancy lifted everyone around her into the same sprightly humor. She had Judge Karen Martin busting out laughing during the proceedings. The only thing more impressive than Sabrina was Sabrina’s new mother, Renee Brown. It’s transporting to stand so close to utter emotion, such unrestrained elation. Most news defeats you just a little bit more, but sometimes it doesn’t, it repairs.
