True Love: The feeling when you first look in your child's eyes, the tiny little hand gripping your finger, and you can't imagine your life without him or her.

Milo's Life Book

In honor of Milo's 1st Anniversary of his Forever Family Day, I thought it was high time I created a Life Book for him. It is far from perfect, if there is such a thing as perfect. Yeah, it has at least one typo (I had to do it quickly because Shutterfly had an incredible deal on books that I just couldn't pass up!). And as Matt ever so helpfully pointed out (thanks hon...), the Great Wall is not located in Shanghai. My original idea for the first picture in the book was a silhouette of a woman holding her baby... but I couldn't find one I liked online. And again, I had 3 days to create the book before the deal expired.

Overall, I'm pretty happy with it, though! I wanted to post this for other adoptive families looking for inspiration on creating their own life books. Because of Milo's age, I chose to write it in the format of a story book (& I'm not the best writer out there, obviously). I will continue to make updated books for him as he grows, with the idea that each one will reveal more details (at least as much as we know) about his story, as he grows old enough to understand.
