Brook's Birthday Present

For Brook's birthday I wanted to make her something special.  I wanted to make her a book that was all about what her new roll as big sister would be about.  I wanted to include her new brothers in the book and tell her about all the great things she will get to do when they come!  

There is such a lack of books for kids that are about adoption and even less about the roll siblings play in adopting a child I thought I would make one myself.  Luckily Shelly has done a great shot documenting Brook's life and posting pictures of the boys so it was easy for me to take the pictures and return them in a book that hopefully be special to them  :)

***Also, when you read this please say a prayer for my Grandma Neighbors.  We just found out that she has a blood clot in her lungs and is getting ready to be transfered by ambulance from the clinic to the hospital.  She is the Grandma that I am closest too and I would appreciate so much your prayers for her***
