Okay. This post will ruin a surprise, but I need to post this while it’s on my mind.
We have seen numerous shutterfly.com photo books put together by adopting parents to show their new children all about their home, siblings, pets, extended family and whatever. Sturdy and creative. Something the waiting orphan can hold onto until the day of rescue from the orphanage.
This Christmas our daughter-in-law put a book together featuring our three grandsons — one belonging to her and two belonging to one of our daughters. What a joy to pull out that book and smile. And smile again. Those little faces are just priceless.
Well, I officially caught the ‘make-a-book’ bug and just ordered my first one…to be sent to the grandsons. I can’t wait to hear how they like them. The theme is the alphabet and each picture features SOMETHING beginning with each letter of the alphabet. Pretty easy when shutterfly provides templates!
I encourage others to consider permanent books to be homes for your precious pictures.
(The first link takes you to my actual book — please dont’ let Alek, Lydian or Milan see it ahead of time. Thanks.)
