A hobby, or so much more?

September 4, 2009

Though Scrapbooking seems to be just a hobby to some, I look at it as writing a history for those you love. I would like to highlight an example close to my heart.

Amanda de Lange fosters orphaned babies with medical needs in China.  Currently she has 46 babies under 3 in two foster homes.  Here are some of her cuties here.

What do I love so much about her besides the fact that her heart and hands are full?  She makes sure each baby goes to their adoptive family with a scrapbook, a story of themselves.  Having my own little girl with a vague history of her first 6 months, I understand what a priceless gift this will be to each of these children and their families.

"A lady named Virginia from Southern California, has dedicated her time to building a scrapbook for each Starfish child" - Starfish foster home.

You can follow Amanda's blog if you would like.

A hobby,a gift, a history. . . What is it to you?
