the whole batch | the riehle “blind side”

We would like to introduce to you, Mandee’s Aunt Traci and Uncle Tom. This year they added to their family a wonderful young man named, Jontae. With the adoption being final very soon, we were so honored that they asked us to take their very first family photos. We saw first hand why Tom and Traci fell in love with him. Standing 6’4″ Jontae is truly a gentle giant, with a soft deep voice and the kindest eyes and… one of the most genuine smiles you’ll ever see. It’s no surprise that old dog Ponca sensed his kindness from the beginning and his new puppy named Sioux, sure loves him too.

Every family has a story and yours starts with LOVE… and we know that love will never end or fail. Keep up the good work… and never forget – TOM-TOM-WHO’s-THE-BOMB-IT’s-TOM!!! I know your cheeks are blushing. LOVE IT.

Amy & Mandee
