I had a wonderful day off today, and I stayed busy putting together our family book. The family book is something that each adoptive family has to put together with pictures of family, friends, and home. It is then shown to social workers to help match children to us, and the children get copies of the books if they want to meet us. These books are also used for birth parents to choose families they might be interested in.
When you think about it like that it can be a bit overwhelming, but all I keep telling myself is that I am not trying to impress anyone with this, we are just showing who we really are. It's hard to just be very basic and not make yourself seem cooler that you really are because you want these people to fall in love with you, but I suppose it is more important that they fall in love with you for the right reasons.
I am pretty exhausted from sitting in front of this computer all day. There are twenty-two pages in all, even if it felt like I put together a whole Harry Potter series, so here are a few of those pages for your viewing pleasure. Hope you enjoy them!
