New Mother Has Photo Shoot With Her Daughter, But They’re Not The Only Ones In The Pics.

One of the most important jobs in the world is being a parent. It's a tough job, and honestly, one that isn't for everyone. Unfortunately, when someone has a child that isn't capable of taking care of them properly, the child typically gets put into the foster system. Becoming a foster parent isn't the easiest job. At times, it can be heartbreaking, exhausting, and very stressful. But what parent doesn't feel like that, right? This foster mother knew that she wanted to have her foster child with her forever and documented the day in the most beautiful way!

Millie Holloman always knew that she wanted to be a mother.

Like most women, Millie was waiting for everything to fall into place, but after losing a dear friend to cancer, she made a huge decision. “Why am I waiting for everything to come to me? If I’m single and want to be a mom, why am I waiting?”

A little over a year ago, Millie brought a wonderful little girl named Vera Wren into her home.

Millie never thought she would become a foster mom, but after spending time with her, Millie knew that she wanted Wren to be her daughter forever. So, she began the process of adopting her.

Finally, it was the day of the adoption and Millie wanted everyone who was involved in their lives to be a part of the process.

Millie and her sister-in-law work as photographers in Wilmington, North Carolina. They came up with an amazing idea to celebrate the big day.

Millie has an incredible amount of support around her.

“We’ve all heard the saying, ‘it takes a village.’ Well it’s true!” she explained. So on the big day, Millie and her co-workers took pictures of everyone that she considered to a part of her village.

Her family and friends offered their endless support to Millie and Wren.

“I’ve often said that when I signed up for foster care, I signed up for the heartache and pain that often come with it. But my family and friends didn’t sign those papers, just me. I just drug them all into it. They’ve been through the ups and downs with me.”
