Who can look at a sunflower and be upset? No one? Right answer. Sunflowers are some of the brightest, most beautiful flowers to ever grace the earth. The story of Sunflower Mae follows closely along the expectations set her namesake.
Mercedes Lara always knew she wanted to adopt, and when she went on a mission trip to an all special needs orphanage in Haiti, she knew God laid this on her heart. She told her husband, Andy Lara, and after short consideration, he was fully committed to whoever the Lord chose for them.
Today, Sunflower has two little siblings, who she loves completely. The Lara’s are a happy family, and share their adoption story (and all the tales after that) via Instagram, and a YouTube channel to spread awareness for Down Syndrome.
This awesome family puts together some of the best, loveliest videos on the internet, and if you don’t believe me, go check out this one.
