An Album for Our Girls

I've called it a family album because I know that our little daughters should already have life books in which I will continue their stories when they come home. This album is simply so that they can get to know us just a wee bit. You will notice there are blurred out spots where any  names are, and that the girls' photo is covered. I cannot at this point show anything about our daughters on any publicly viewed sites, so you will just have to imagine what they look like ;o). Also everything looks a little on the blurry side because I'd already put the completed pages in those handy dandy plastic page protectors. They're not so handy for getting clear photographs :oS.

There is room for one more page, but it will just be text. I'm still formulating in my mind what I want to write on it. There's so much I want to tell our little daughters. Thankfully, Lord willing, we will have a lifetime to get to know each other!


  1. that is so cool! What a neat way for them to get ready to meet the whole family! So happy for you guys!!!! HUGS!

  2. What a sweet treasure this is! Such a great idea. I am very excited for you!

  3. It's beautiful. What a sweet thing. It gave me wee shivers on my arms. :)

  4. That is SO pretty. We did this for Lily when we got our referral. Though it looked nowhere on earth as lovely as yours. I think it helped her associate names with faces even at her young age.

    As an aside, my grandmother lived on a farm and my memories of spending time there are the absolute best of my childhood.

  5. Your little girls and my Baby Ish both have a "Lola"! My sister-in-law is from the Phillipines so my nephew started calling my mother-in-law "Lola" and it stuck!

  6. Ok, and she also is an AMAZING scrapbooker??? What can't you do?!! You seem to be well versed in so many creative areas. What a precious idea and a simply beautiful book. I know your girls will feel so loved and blessed!
    Praying for them and you all.

  7. What a beautiful gift to give the girls! I don't know if you have room for any more pictures or not but our kids really liked the pictures we sent them of our house, the rooms, and the backyard. Now that their English is better, they tell us that those pictures were very helpful for them to get an idea of where they were going.

    I am sure that your girls will be thrilled to get the album!

    I can't wait for the day when I can see their pictures and pray for them by name! You must be getting so excited!

  8. this is so beautiful. I know you guys are getting SO excited. I can't wait to hear more.

  9. That is the sweetest! Beautifully done!!!
