Adoption Photo: Kyra
Kyra (5, China) / daughter of Kristin and Keith
PHOTOGRAPHER: MOLLY SHIELDS
“Kyra has a ton of energy—in all the photos taken before this she was running, spinning around. But if something interests her, she is laser-focused—and this patch of dandelions caught her attention. We adopted Kyra at age four, and people often think that, when you adopt an older child, you miss out on all kinds of ‘firsts.’ We’ve found there are so many things for children to learn and discover; seeing her child-like wonder at blowing a dandelion for the first time was just one amazing example” —KRISTIN
