In My Spare Time....

I have been working on some pages to put in an adoption scrapbook for our child(ren).

Number 1:

Journaling reads:

If You Were Mine

When my heart is troubled
And I am weighed down,
Then I like to think of how
This lonesome world would be,
If I could see your face
Or hold you in my arms.
If you were mine,
If you were mine.

If you had a bad dream
I would jump inside it.
And I would fight for you
With all the strength that I could find.
I would lead you home
By your tiny hand.
If you were mine,
If you were mine.

I would sing of love
On the blackest night.
I would sing of God and how
His goodness fills our lives.
I would sing to you
'Til the morning light.
If you were mine,
If you were mine.

-Fernando Ortega

Number 2:

Journaling reads:

A Place For You

One little stranger
One in a million
One homeless angel
One helpless child.

In the fields that God has sown
Blessings live, life is grown.
An empty space, the Father knew
There is a place for you.

So come across the ocean
Safe to the harbor
Into a family
Two worlds away.

Far from your tragedy
Safe and secure.
All along, the Father knew
There is a place for you.

In the sight of Heaven's view,
There is a place for you.

-Wayne Watson

Number 3:
This last one is about an Ethiopian restaurant that Chris and I visited as a cultural experience while doing our adoptive parent training. The food was great, and it was so neat to be able to experience something authentically Ethiopian.

Have a happy Tuesday!

  1. I love it! I'm only three pages into our lifebook so far, but thanks for the inspiration! I really should get going on that, lol.
