The first is this family portrait over our fireplace. Both girls spotted it immediately and Lucy was thrilled to see herself up there!
We got a smaller photo made that will be mounted the same way, with chrome posts instead of a frame, but haven't had the chance to mount it yet. It will be in the girls' room.
Since Lucy's photos from her life at the orphanage were all originals (and I was afraid they would get damaged or lost, etc) I scanned them all in and had them bound into a book for her. She loves to look at her photos.
A sample page inside.
I also had a book made to house all of our China photos. The thought of printing them all out and then manually mounting them into an album made me exhausted before I could even start. Thank goodness for the internet once again. A few uploads, some text, some clicks of the mouse and a credit card was all it took.
Some sample pages.
I'm not including photos of the last project which was to print out some current pictures of both Lucy and Kate to have in frames around the house and in their room. The girls noticed right away and I think it helps Lucy to feel as if she belongs in this house to see herself pictured in every room.
