Loving: "Newborn" Photos of Adopted 13-Year-Old Boy
Mother and photographer Kelli Higgins recently adopted 13-year-old Latrell, and took photos in the newborn style of her new son. The photos have since gone viral on her Facebook page, with over 11,000 Likes and nearly 5,000 shares.
Higgins told TODAY.com that it's emphasizing the need for parents to consider adopting older children.
"These children, once they get past a certain age, they don't find homes and they age out of foster care," she told TODAY.com. "They have to figure out the world on their own and there's no one to go back to as an adult. Where do you go for Christmas? It's just horrible, it's heartbreaking."
