Congratulations to Haley Lowe at Colorado Christian University for winning our 2013 OpLove Scholarship!!!
Haley wrote a beautiful essay on “Patriotism”. Here is an excerpt of her essay, “When I was a kid I don’t think I really knew what it meant to be an American. Sure, I could tell you that I was born in America. I could tell you that I lived in America, but I did not know the true meaning behind that statement. ” It is a tear-jerker essay that also leaves you with a sense of pride.

Shauna Kruse, one of our dedicated volunteer photographers in Washington, was featured in a news segment about her participation with OpLove. The feature was aired on July 3, 2013, and it included two of her clients sharing their experience. It is a fabulous segment that really gives a personal feeling about what our photographers do and how much it means to the families.
