Mini Album~Papertrey Princess challenge

It took me some time to settle on what mini album I wanted to create for the blogging group I'm a part of, the Papertrey Princesses. I finally decided on one of my sweet boy Makaio. Many of you followed and read my story of the long journey it was to get him home and I thought a little album of some of my favorite pictures of him while we were seperated was just the thing. So, here is my mini album of my son, Waiting for you.

 The journaling reads:
You were an unexpected miracle, a gift from God. We prayed and hoped and cried while working and waiting to get you home. Twenty long and blessed months later you are in our arms...you were worth the wait.  Dec.2009-Aug.2011







I'd love it if you dropped me a comment:) Thanks so much for visiting!

What a super super sweet album..... I remember the days when you posted about your process bringing him home with you. He looks like SUCH a happy little baby with a gorgeous smile that can light up any room. So happy for you and your family! :)

So glad you picked this as your mini album. It will be treasured by him forever. Love the cover. So boyish. Cute little snail there too.
Awsome pictures & journaling. Wishing you many happy memories.

What a treasure--your son and your book. He will love looking through this for the rest of his life. He was so lucky to find you, and you were so lucky to find him.
