Final pages for adoption album...

I have seen pictures of the precious little boy whose pictures will be filling this album.  He is "cute as a button," so I had to include these pages.  
As the final page, I wanted something special.  This poem is wonderful for adoptive families.

Round 3 of Adoption album...

Pages 12-13 are meant for highlighting special pictures of their new son and a new family photo.
Pages 14-15 are meant for the first pictures taken back at home in the United States.
Pages 16-17 can be used for more family pictures or just of their new little boy playing at home with his "forever family."

Some more adoption album pages...

This little boy that will soon be with his forever family has spent his first year of life in an orphanage, so I wanted to include some pages for his parent's to put pictures from his days at the orphanage in Ethiopia.
 Every album needs a page for mom and a page for dad, so that is what pages 8/9 and 10/11 are set up for.

Adoption album

I am so excited to be able to share this with you.  Some friends of ours are getting ready to head to Ethiopia to pick up their son.  They have struggled with fertility issues and gone through the long process of adoption, but the time is finally at hand to bring home their first child.  I wanted to do something special for them and since their son is already a year old, the typically first year album just wouldn't be appropriate.  Instead, I decided to create an 8x8 album for them to document their journey of bringing Elijah home.  Today I am sharing the first five pages.  In the next few days I will be sharing pictures of the rest of the album.
