Camden County Private Event Photographer | The Mansion on Main Street | Roaring 16's https://bonniewireback.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/4/camden-county-private-event-photographer-the-mansion-on-main-street-roaring-16s Back in the ol' days, when I was sixteen, I had no idea how to dress myself in any way that was remotely fashionable or flattering.  I had just enough wherewithal to know how to blow out my bangs and shop the clearance rack at Express.  That's why it always amazes me when I am chosen to document the rite of passage that is the Sweet 16 birthday party.  It amazes me when other 16-year olds are able to present themselves in such ways that are trendy, and cute and stylish and for lack of more descriptive words, utterly gorgeous.  

And then there are teens like this one.  Whose style and panache are so much a part of her every day life, she has to take her Sweet 16 celebration to a whole new level and bring in a style and glamour that is epic, to say the least.  

And that is what brought me to The Mansion on Main Street where I was honored to document her milestone birthday with all of her friends and family by her side.  What a joy it was to watch this beautiful young woman work the room with grace and dignity.  And sweet moves.  And sweet candy.  Just a sweet rip-roaring time.  

Welcome back in time to this classic period party!

SJ Wedding Photographer | Adelphia Restaurant & Lounge | A Second Chance https://bonniewireback.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/4/sj-wedding-photographer-adelphia-restaurant-lounge-a-second-chance When a couple takes their vows before G-d, the ultimate commitment is made when we utter five little words:  

'Til Death Do Us Part.

In those five words, we are vowing a lifetime to each other.  We are vowing that no bodily or earthly presence will ever come between us and our vows to each other.  No annoyance, no disturbance, no anger, no jealousy, no dirty dishes nor dirty underwear left on the side of the bed for the 47th time even though the hamper is mere feet away and I've asked you not to do it time and again yet you refuse to listen and I am starting to believe you're doing in on purpose. Nothing.  Nothing will separate us.  Only death. 

But what happens when that happens?  What happens when one member of the beloved coupling leaves this world?  What happens to the broken-hearted love left behind?  Does his life end, too?  Is her time in which she is allowed to experience joy over? Are they destined to live this world alone, without companionship, without the everlasting love of another person?

And what happens if we do find love again?  Does that mean we betray our first love who has left this earth?  Does that mean we turn our back on the family bonds we gained through that former relationship?  Do we start over again with no reflection on the past, no reverence for the life we had, and the journey that brought us to this point?

Or do we go forward with tangible ties to the past, as this couple did at the gorgeous Adelphia Restaurant & Lounge.  This couple who is moving forward, solidifying their love, proclaiming their devotion but in such a way as to honor their former life; a way that does not abandon the loves who are now looking down on them as they begin this new life together.  They move forward with their children and grandchildren by their side but not only that, they move forward with the love and grace afforded to to them by one more person.  One more person who serves as a tie to their past; whose presence served as a corporeal blessing of their bond.  

The sister of the man who is looking down upon his widow as she is afforded another chance at love.  Another soul mate to start this new chapter of her life.  This woman stood by the bride's side as her forever sister-in-law found her love in a most wonderful and deserving man.

To say that I cried harder than anyone there is as humiliating as it is true.  This will quite possibly go down as the most sentimental wedding I have shot yet and I have the snotty tissues to prove it.

SJ Family Lifestyle Photographer | Croft Farm Arts Center | What Can I Say...? https://bonniewireback.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/3/sj-family-lifestyle-photographer-croft-farm-arts-center Oh, what can I possibly say about this family that I have not said before.  

Lots!!

I can say how thankful I am for my business to introduce me to such amazing people such as this.  

I can say how blessed I am to be asked over and over to document their little family.

I can say how blown away I am by how beautiful their family is and how much it brings a tear to my eye every time I get to see them and how they love on each other so effortlessly.  

I can say how much fun I have with these kids, who invited me into their life the moment they met their little brother; to this day, one of my favorite photographic moments ever.  

And just wait, I get to photograph them again in a few short weeks when ANOTHER member gets added to their family!

Stay tuned! 2016-02-21_00012016-02-21_0001 2016-02-21_00022016-02-21_0002 2016-02-21_00032016-02-21_0003 2016-02-21_00042016-02-21_0004 2016-02-21_00052016-02-21_0005 2016-02-21_00062016-02-21_0006 2016-02-21_00072016-02-21_0007 2016-02-21_00082016-02-21_0008 2016-02-21_00092016-02-21_0009 2016-02-21_00102016-02-21_0010 2016-02-21_00112016-02-21_0011 2016-02-21_00122016-02-21_0012 2016-02-21_00132016-02-21_0013 2016-02-21_00142016-02-21_0014

Blue Bell Wedding Photographer | The Manor House at Prophecy Creek Park | Getting to Know You https://bonniewireback.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/3/blue-bell-wedding-photographer-the-manor-house-at-prophecy-creek-park Because of this little business I started, I meet new people all the time.  Over the course of months, I  I get to know them on such intimate levels and then I get to culminate that relationship on their most joyous day.  But sometimes, my "getting-to-know you" phase doesn't last mere weeks or months but years.  Decades.  

Sometimes I am given the honor of photographing someone who has been in my life for as long as it's been my life.

This is one of those times.  

Below you will see the engagement portraits at The Manor House at Prophecy Creek Park, of a spectacular woman who has chosen to marry an equally spectacular man.  A man with whom I celebrated every Christmas.  Every birthday.  Every graduation.  Every life milestone, we were in each other's life.  A man who was, in more ways than one, more like family to me than other people with whom I have a blood bond.  

Because this was the beginning of the story of the time I got to photograph the son of my father's best friend in this world.  These two men who have been like brothers to each other, get to sit back and watch, as their children's lives are now intertwined as the man begins his own life journey to marry the woman he will spend all eternity with.  

And I get to photograph it.

NJ Wedding Photographer | Downtown Swedesboro | An Adorable Chapter https://bonniewireback.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/3/nj-wedding-photographer-downtown-swedesboro Once upon a time in the history of my life, I met a woman who changed the course of my teaching career for the better.  She mentored me, she guided me, she showed me what it truly means to be an educator.  And with that, she invited me into her family.  Her daughters became my daughters as a lifelong friendship with this family was created.  

This is all my buildup as I struggle to find the words to express what it meant to me to be the one chosen to shoot our oldest daughter's wedding.  While I try to find a way to capture my rapture in words, take a look at our little jaunt through their hometown, Swedesboro, as I was asked to tag along for this adorable chapter in their adorably wonderful love story.

South Jersey Private Event Photographer | Williamstown | One Year of Love...SMASH https://bonniewireback.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/2/south-jersey-private-event-photographer-one-year-of-love-smash As a continuation from our portrait session, the next logical step to solidifying the celebration of this little man's one year on earth, I was invited to bear witness to the ceremonial smashing of the birthday cake.  Having experienced my share of cake smashes, I knew what to expect.  Icing, airborne baked goods, tears, snot.  Oh, and naps.  Naps for everyone.

But as always seems to happen, I was pleasantly surprised by what else this young man had in store for me.  

In addition to confectionary projectiles, there was something else in the air.  Something that lasts long after the last bit of icing has been dug out of various orifices and corners of the kitchen.  

Family.  The love of family.

Because while I spent the first chapter of our photographic celebration honoring the eternal bond between him and his mother, I got to spend the second half witnessing the outpouring of love and devotion for this special little boy from other family members whose womb he was not cradled in.  This little boy is not only adored and cherished by his mommy but also his auntie, whose love was so palpable, it transcended the title of aunt.  Grandparents who relished any moment with their prized grandson, stealing kisses and snuggles any moment they could.  Cousins and besties and puppies who just wanted to spend time with him.  This little boy is very lucky because he has a whole village of loved ones who are devoted to him and surely, always will be.

Check it out...and duck when the icing goes flying.

New Jersey Family Portrait Photographer | Knights Park | One Year of Love https://bonniewireback.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/2/new-jersey-family-portrait-photographer-knights-park-one-year-of-love As I am starting to accrue on years of life (37, baby!), with that comes years of life experiences that I can compare my newest life experiences against. Therefore, I can say with almost four decades of wisdom that these portraits below at Knights Park are not just of a baby and his mother.  These pictures are of a most exquisite and precious bond that is so unique, one will never find a way to compare its depths to anything else experienced in this life.

The phenomena that is the bond between a mother and her son.  

As I have one of my own, I know what this feels like.  I understand the depths of emotion that are inherent in a relationship such as this.  Fellow mothers and specifically, boy mothers, can absolutely appreciate the joy it brought me to document this absolutely cherished time of life, the celebration of one year of life together.  Their first of an eternity.  And the fact that it's a childhood friend that I was able to do this for makes it all the more poignant for me.  

Thank you trusting me to document this time of life, my friend!

South Jersey Wedding Photographer | The Kove | Second Shooter for Laura Napoli Photography https://bonniewireback.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/2/south-jersey-wedding-photographer-the-kove-second-shooter-for-laura-napoli-photography Back in the summer of 2013, I had firmly decided to become a wedding photographer.  It was a scary jump as I felt I would never want to take on that responsibility but opportunity came knocking and I answered.  A friend of mine told me of a fellow photographer who was also looking to break into the wedding photography business and asked if I would be interested in meeting her.  I was frightened as I had never intended on working with someone else, let alone mentoring someone else, but opportunity knocked and I answered again.  

Quite literally the best connection I made in this wild photography world.  

Because that day began the mentorship, the relationship, the-partnership-in-gestation, but most of all the friendship between Laura Napoli and me.  Since then, her progress and improvement has been exponential and she makes me weep in joy when I see where she is now, an established wedding photographer who has worked with veritably every South Jersey industry leading wedding photographer; she was even chosen out of the masses to be an associate photographer for a leading photography studio.  Based on her rate of growth, I can't even imagine where she will be in another three years.  

She is my absolutely favorite person to have by my side on those long wedding days and every single bride and groom I have worked with has told me that their experience with me was only heightened by the addition of Laura.  She is outstanding in every sense of the word.

And this day, I got to return the favor.  I got to second shoot for HER.

The Jedi has become the Master.

New Jersey Private Event Photographer | E Lounge | An Angelic Affair https://bonniewireback.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/2/new-jersey-private-event-photographer-e-lounge-an-angelic-affair As a Jewish mother, I can fully appreciate other religions' rituals when they specifically involve their children.  Even when the religion differs from my own, I can understand and welcome the meaning and tradition that is steeped in certain ceremonies and customs.

Case in point, the most blessed of occasions, the Holy Communion.  

A celebration in which one most reverent and deserving child receives this rite of passage in her church.  A celebration that once was thrown in her parents' honor, her grandparents' honor, and so on. But also as a fellow mother, I understand it is so much more than just a beautiful and ancient tradition in our religious institutions.  It is a celebration of life.  A celebration of family.  A celebration that started not even a decade ago when this little angel graced her family with her existence.  From a baby shower to a first birthday party to now this, a celebration so grand, even the Mummers had to take part!  Every milestone, every celebratory occasion that this little angel embarks on is just another milestone in her family's life.  It makes you wonder where she will go and what she will do because she is truly a darling darling person and I cannot wait to see what the next celebration has in store for us!

Check out the epic party thrown at the swank E Lounge!

PA Wedding Photographer | The Buck Hotel | Second Photographer for Katie Long Photography https://bonniewireback.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/2/pa-wedding-photographer-the-buck-hotel-second-photographer-for-katie-long-photography When I started this business, I did so to help my family out of a dire financial situation.  I saw an opportunity to make some much needed money doing something I already enjoyed doing.  I never thought about where I would be in five years and I definitely did not consider the amazing people I would meet along the way.  Not just wonderful brides and grooms but fellow photographers.  Fellow photographers who, if they lived just a little closer, would likely be a very close friend.  Fellow photographers who share my struggle as a working mommy of three beautiful perfect children.  Alas, too many zip codes separate us for that friendship to be a reality but it did not stop me from immensely enjoying myself as I had the grand opportunity to second shoot for the multiply talented fellow momtog, Katie Long.  I hope this is not the last time we get to bond over breast milk and apertures because it was truly delightful.

Pennsylvania Wedding Photographer | Jericho National Golf Club | Then https://bonniewireback.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/2/pennsylvania-wedding-photographer-jericho-national-golf-club Every time I sit down to write my blog on a wedding, I get giddy for a number of reasons.  Usually, and especially in this case, a significant amount of time has passed since the wedding and looking back on these images at the impressively exquisite Our Lady of Good Counsel and outrageously gorgeous Jericho National Country Club brings back so many happy memories for me.  At the conclusion of every wedding, I determine what I am going to write so it's exciting to me to sit down and have the opportunity to share with the world what these two people mean to me; what makes them special.  

But this time, I will not ONLY focus on the bride and groom.  No, this time my focus fans out to all that I witnessed on that blessed day almost a year ago.  On the surface, it will look like many love stories.  Because in these pictures below are the love stories of a man and woman, a father and daughter, a mother and son, sisters, grandmothers, there was even a love of Pearl Jam.  

But when you dig deeper, you realize, this is truly just one love story. 

The love of family. 

Because that is what this day was all about.  Yes, we gathered together to celebrate the beginning of a life that started so many years ago when they were teenagers.  And yes, we gathered to celebrate vows being taken before G-d. And yes, we gathered together to dance a Mummer's strut in honor of a most-deserving couple.  But in every corner, every nook, everywhere I turned, there it was.

The love of family. 

When you weren't looking (and even when you were), there were parents of the bride sneaking kisses and sweet caresses, setting a model for their daughters of what true eternal love looks like.  There were happy tears flowing from the sisters who have walked this life with these two by their side as their respective brother/sister walked into their 'own happily ever after. There were stories...oh were there colorful stories, from cousins and uncles and aunts about this bride and groom and their families, the people that have known them since infancy.  There was the laughter, so much laughter, and singing and dancing from the best friends who did not leave this bride and groom's side all night.  There were grandmothers, who would not let anything get in their way as they celebrated the love of their legacies, the people who keep them forever young.   There was Gumby and Pokey...but that's a whole OTHER story.  

And then there was that furbaby.  That little beautiful girl who will be a part of this beautiful life made together.  She was there, too, as she was here. Because this day was about one thing:

The love of family.

This day marked a most beautiful chapter of a beautiful love story of two very beautiful families and to even be a footnote at the bottom of a page was an immeasurable honor.  They thank me for the pictures but I thank them for allowing me into their life.  Their love story. 

Once again, thank you to Laura Napoli of Laura Napoli Photography for your neverending awesomeness as my second shooter.

New Jersey Bat Mitzvah Photographer | Forsgate Country Club | The Littlest Hero https://bonniewireback.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/2/new-jersey-bat-mitzvah-photographer-forsgate-country-club-the-littlest-hero Because of my job, I meet many families and hear many life stories.  So many make me laugh, more than I care to admit make me cry, but it’s always a joy and honor to be invited into a family’s story and get to witness the human experience over and over again in so many beautiful ways.  But then every so often, I hear a story that leaves me frozen in incredulity.  A story that moves me beyond words. A story that makes me take pause and realize the beauty and fragility of life. 

This is one of those stories.  

Because this is the story of a baby. A baby, who just by her very existence, saved her family’s life.  Saved her family's life.

One September day, a dozen or so years ago, her mother was nearing the end of her pregnancy.  Feeling well, she intended on going to work  but her baby had other plans.  Serendipitous plans.  Having suddenly been diagnosed with preeclampsia and gestational diabetes, the young mother was hospitalized. 

And because of that…she did not go to work later that week.  She was not there on a particular Tuesday. 

Her work was at the World Trade Center.

That Tuesday was September 11, 2001.

Because of this little girl and her divine intervention, her mother is alive today, her brother is alive today, her father is alive today.  Not just in the corporeal sense but also in the spiritual sense, because if not for her, he would have lost his pregnant wife that day and who knows the tragic trajectory his life would have been put upon. 

I know, chills, right?

So you can imagine the amount of joy and rightful fanfare that went into this young woman's coming of age in the Jewish religion, her Bat Mitzvah.  The time when she is held accountable for her actions, when she is expected to be a member of her community, when she is to follow the teachings of the Torah, when she finally becomes a woman according to the laws of Judaism.  

But you know what?  That's old hat for someone who started this life in such an magnificent and marvelous way.  What's a little Torah Study when you are the one who single-handedly breathed life into your family, right?  

Okay, let's forget all that and just party because this girl knows how to do it right!  Take a look a the super gorgeous super entertaining fun time we had at Forsgate Country Club!  I can't tell you how much fun I had and what a joy it was to get to know her.  It's girls like her that make me thankful for this job, as her trajectory is one of life, love, and success.    

I can't wait to see what she does.

New Jersey Wedding Photographer | Brigantine, NJ | MTI Associate Photographer https://bonniewireback.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/11/new-jersey-wedding-photographer-brigantine-nj-mti-associate-photographer Months ago, I met a fellow photographer by the name of Andrew Ludewig of the amazingly diversely talented MTI Photography, LLC.  His business was growing and expanding at such a rate, he had to bring on associate shooters just to keep up with the demand.  One afternoon, we met in a local cafe and got to talking shop (so much fun to find someone who enjoys discussing the aperture's affect on artificial versus ambient light and inverse square law as much as I do).  Within minutes we realized we were a great fit as both of us are just about the nicest (and most modest) people in the business.  I was lucky enough to be chosen to be  part of his team and I was introduced to the couple whose forever I would be documenting.  There was definitely some serendipity involved in this pairing (tripling?) because just like Andrew, the moment I met this couple, I felt like we were old friends.  We spent their engagement session on the ever beautiful Brigantine Isles just enjoying our time together finding fun little spots all along the island to photograph, laughing alongside each other as we just had fun celebrating their love.  I enjoyed myself so much, I honestly did not want it to end.  But thankfully for me, this was only the beginning of our relationship as this Fall, I had the overwhelming joy of photographing their wedding!  

Stay tuned to see!  But in the meantime...

SJ Wedding Photographer | Auletto Caterers, Almonesson, NJ | In Your Eyes https://bonniewireback.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/11/sj-wedding-photographer-aulettos-caterers-in-your-eyes Gather round, my friends.  It's love story time.  

But this time, I am going to tell two love stories that involve three people.  Intriguing, right?

There is, of course, the love story of our bride and groom.  These two people who so graciously invited me into their first home for their engagement portraits and took me in as though I were family.  These two people who shared their love for their adorable furchildren with me and who so clearly demonstrated their passion for each other, their devotion to each other, their support of each other, and honestly, and most of all...their commitment to each other.  Their palpable bond that this couple shares.  They are in it to win it.  Their bond is one that will only be broken by death.  Nothing life has or will throw at them will break them.  They know life will give them challenges that they will have to battle but their track record shows...they can do handle it.  Because they have done it time and again.  And their love has only strengthened. 

But you know all that.  Most couples I meet have a similar story; that's the point of marriage, right? You and me vs. the world, right?

So what I want to talk about, in addition to their love story, is the OTHER love story I witnessed on this blessed day at Auletto Caterers in Almonesson.  I witnessed another love story in which the two people involved shared a love and a devotion and a different sort of passion but a very similar commitment.  A lifelong commitment to be by each other's sides through thick and thin.  

This was not the love of a husband for a wife...but a Maid of Honor for her Best Friend.  

A love that started so very long ago and a love that runs so deep, it was clear this relationship transcended friendship and has crossed over into sisterhood.  And as someone who has also fallen in love with this bride (it's kind of hard not to, you'll see why down below), this gave me immense joy to witness.  To see this woman, who is so resplendent and whose personality is as captivating as her goddesslike beauty, be so loved upon by her bestest of besties on this day, just made me smile. And not just her Maid of Honor, but all her attendants.  Every woman chosen to be by this bride's side was so demonstrative in her love for her.  The fact that she was surrounded by love brought me joy. Because this day could have been spent wishing and yearning for the one person who could not be in attendance.  The one person who only mere months before this day left her daughter behind as she made her journey to heaven.  The woman who, upon death, veritably left her daughter alone, as any girl feels when her mother leaves this world. 

But she didn't.  

She was never  alone.  

Because when her mother did pass on that heartbreaking day, she passed knowing that she was leaving her daughter in FOUR loving and supporting arms.  She would never be without those four loving arms of her husband nor her best friend/sister.   The same arms that supported her in her grief are the same arms that supported her on her most special day.  From the moment she woke up until the moment she laid her head down on her pillow that night, as someone's wife, they were there. And in a few short months, the circle of life will continue and this beautiful mesmerizingly sweet caring adorable funny amazing woman will use her arms to cradle someone else.  Someone very special.  

Their baby daughter.

Thank you as always to the always stupendous Laura Napoli, my partner in crime.  Also thank you to Jessica Ashman for making the day all the more excellent with your awesome assistance (and not outing to anyone how I dropped the bride's ring and momentarily lost it in the aforementioned Maid of Honor's bag!)!

New Jersey Wedding Photographer | Glassboro, NJ | Where We Began https://bonniewireback.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/8/new-jersey-wedding-photographer-mantua-nj-where-we-began I was having a conversation with my husband the other night about photographs and the importance of them in our lives.  Photographs bring us back to a time in our past that we cherish in our present. And don't you know, the little darling, light of my life, HUSBAND OF A PHOTOGRAPHER actually said to me..."I really don't think pictures are all that important.  I have all the memories I need right here," and then proceeded to tap his head.  

I know, it's like the shoemaker's wife not even wanting her kids to wear shoes!  Seriously?

Since I adore the yin/yang that my husband and I base our relationship on, I proudly and vehemently disagreed and this session proves why.  Because photographs provide us with the memories our memory banks cannot possibly afford us.  Details of where we were, whom we were with, the sights, the sounds, the smells of our life.  A photograph can bring all that back in an instant with one clap of the shutter.  

And that is why I was so overjoyed that this couple chose to have their engagement session in their first home.  The home they will very soon after this, walk into as husband and wife.  The home that may not be their home forever but the home that was theirs at this precious stage of life.  

And I am so honored that I am able to give them photographs that they will cherish for years to come of that home that welcomed them as husband and wife for the first time.  

Now if you'll excuse me, my husband is about to be reunited with memories of our life together (whether he likes it or not!)

SJ Wedding Photographer | Camden County Boathouse | Second Shooter for Salex Photography https://bonniewireback.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/8/sj-wedding-photographer-camden-county-boathouse-second-shooter-for-salex-photography One of the most frustrating and difficult things about being a self-taught photographer is the isolation.  Everything is done through my own research, my own lessons, my own seeking of knowledge.  Finding others like me, on the same lonely journey, is a breath of fresh air that can't be denied.  Not only is it so wonderful to spend time with people who are genuinely kind and nice and people whom I really like, but it's so much easier talking to other photographers because, "they get it".  

Not that my husband doesn't find discussions of bokeh to be scintillating and my best friends don't look forward to me strategizing about my goal to nail the Fibonacci Spiral in my composition, but...it's just seamless. They get it.  They appreciate it.  Their friendship is on a different level then a mere co-worker or friend.  Or husband (sorry, Babe).  

This past Valentine's Day, I had the extreme honor of second shooting for Craig Schulte of Salex Photography at the beautiful Church of St. John the Evangelist and then the exquisite Camden County Boathouse.  It was an honor to see how he masterfully covers weddings and also it was a joy working with Craig and his wonderful wife.  While I would always prefer to spend Valentine's Day with my husband, this set of families and new friends were a close second.

South Jersey Lifestyle Newborn Photographer | Mullica Hill | Now We Are Six https://bonniewireback.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/8/south-jersey-lifestyle-newborn-photographer-mullica-hill-you-complete-us I have been very open with my friends and family about my struggle to achieve my goal of having three children.  Before my daughter was born, my happiness was tinged with a feeling of sadness, a feeling of emptiness.  Like someone was missing from the table.  No matter how much joy my two children brought me, I just could not deny the unoccupied space in my heart.  Every joy was tempered with the tug on my heart; my family is not complete.

Someone is missing.  

Therefore, I know on a deep and intimate level what this mother felt upon the birth of her final child.  The joy, the satiation, the feeling of wholeness.  There is absolutely nothing that can hyperbolize the emotion a mother experiences when she completes her family.  

As this is the second time I was honored to photograph this family during this most precious time of life, and as their mother is one of my very very good friends, these photographs mean more to me than I could express.  The joy I get at looking at them and remembering how I was there just two short years ago photographing the same joyous event, looking at these four absolutely cherubic faces and remember how I rejoiced in the birth of every last one of them.  And I will continue to relish in the accomplishments of every last one of them.  But for now...I relish this mom's joy, because it, too...is my joy.  The joy of a mother reaching her maternal destination.  

The completion of her family.
