tug and the demateo family: family portrait shoot

It was about a year ago that Tug was introduced to the DeMateos. As a response to God's calling on their home, Sarah and Matt became a "Safe Family". Ready for the call at any point in time, they prepared for God to knock on their door in the form of a little one. It wasn't too long after this process that the call came and there was a beautiful baby boy who needed a short-term place to stay while his mom was getting some things in order. Tug's jovial spirit instantly filled their home with adventure and laughter. After a short time, Tug stayed with another safe family, but their relationship with him and his mother continued. A few weeks ago the call came again and the DeMateos were ready with open arms. Tug has been such a wonderful and well-loved addition to our church family and it has not only been my pleasure to hang out with this little guy on a few different occasions, but also document a bit of his relationship with the DeMateos. Matt and Sarah, you guys are such an encouragement to me and to so many others in our church who have also opened their door as "safe families" throughout the years. Praise God for your obedience, your flexibility and for being conduits of His love to this amazing little guy.
Praying for you all!
