What does 17-year-old Elijah’s photo say to you? Take a long look at him and try to imagine what was going through his mind as he was sitting for that photo. For most of us, sitting for a beautifully shot portrait is a happy occasion. We’re making memories and marking important times and occasions in our lives, often with our families. Smiles abound and we’re happy to share our photos with family and friends. That’s not entirely the case for Elijah. He’s fully aware that this photo shoot has a purpose beyond just looking good for the camera, and it shows on his face. We see equal amounts of hope, happiness, worry and sadness, and it just breaks our heart. Elijah is an amazing young man who just needs a family to really see him and to let him know that he is loved and wanted. 2987561
