TBT Family Day

Yesterday is the day that we as a family celebrate FAMILY DAY.  Our sons were adopted from Russia on September 25, 2009, but it took us until October 15, 2009 to finally be reunited as a family.  This photo was taken a few days later when both sets of Grandparents could be together with us as we began the great journey together.

I had collected a few Adoption related scrapbooking items during our long process of 18 months to bring our boys home.  This paper was one of those supplies, with the title already printed on the paper.  I only had two sheets, and thus need to use it wisely as I wanted a layout for each boy.  The contrasting background paper is cut from behind the photo mat.  I found matching Black Magic card stock in my stash.  A few border stickers and a time line journaling mat finished the layout.

My how they have grown, changed, and matured since this photo.  I am so proud of the young man my now fifteen year-old son has become.  My little man has grown from being barely at the 3% for height and weight to almost the 50%.  Our daughter is now a freshman in college.  Happy Fifth Anniversary as a Family to my precious family!

For those interested in the full story, please contact me and I will share our adoption journey blog.
