Pictures to Remember the Moment

Read below for an idea that was posted on a Yahoo! Group for our agency.

We were at a 90th birthday party and a good friend of the family presented the birthday lady with a picture of the sunrise (St. Augustine Beach) on her birthday. This post reminded me of how special that would be to have these pictures. It is on my “to do” list!
I would add that I will take a picture of the sunrise/sunset on referral day too.
And a big Thank You to Larry for helping to remind me of just how great of an idea this is.

While you are waiting (and waiting and waiting), I thought that I would give you a couple of ideas on photos to take during your journey. While they are all similar, they each have VERY SPECIAL meaning!

Be sure to take a photo of:
1) The sunrise on the day that you finally get to meet your child,
2) The sunset at the end of your first day together,
3) The sunset on your final night in China (your child's final sunset in their homeland before becoming an American citizen),
4) The sunrise on the day that you head for home (for the same basic reason as #3, only this time it is your child's final sunrise).

Just something to think about while you wait. Here's hoping that your wait is a short one! Larry

UPDATE: Wendy added these three photo “opportunities”. Thanks!!

1. Photo of our daughter taking off on plane from her hometown (last time she/we will see her birth city for years to come)with her new family.
2. Photo of all of us taking off on plane leaving China for the US.
3. Landing in our hometown!

OH! Alyson you are so right what a wonderful picture of time caught on camera that would be.

I'll have to add that to my to do list for sure.
Thanks

I LOVE this idea! Also, someone recently reminded me to buy a Chinese newspaper on Gotcha Day. I think I'll buy one in China and have someone buy one here at home too on Gotcha Day.
