What a task and one I dreaded! I am not a scrapbooker, but each of my bio children have a baby book so I am determined that each of my adopted children will have a lifebook. Lilly's was completed in the summer before we travelled for Ellie. Ellie's . . .well, Ellie's was not even started until today. I had been filing papers away since our paperchase for her, but never, ever started because I knew I needed hours to make any headway. Today was the day. I warned David that I was locking our bedroom door for . . .well, hours!! And I did.
4 hours later - I kid you not, it looks like a lifebook and not a folder stuffed with papers. It is not complete yet, but it is now doable. Lots more writing to do as well as pictures to place in the photo pages - a much more manageable task. Then, I'll be done - with Ellie's. As for Hudson's. . .his is now in the manila folder that once held Ellie's. And his may get done in, say, 2012?
