Me and My Mooks
We chose this one because of the eye contact, and the fact that it looks so vibrant. The one drawback is the bit of space between me and Sabrina, but I think that's outweighed by how much the picture seems to engage the viewer. The main photo is meant to be a visual greeting from us to a potential birth mother and I think this one gets to that feeling. The second picture is adorable, but it shows us as a happy family; I don't think it brings the viewer into the photo quite like this one does.
We went over these and about 80 other pictures with our adoption counselor today and narrowed the field down to about 18 candidates to be included on our letter. Those and about 20 others will go onto our eventual adoption website. We're already done with the letter text, so I hope to take the next two weeks to put together the actual brochure. After submitting our final bit of paperwork, we hope to be live by the end of November. Then the real journey begins, and I'm so glad I have you guys to share it with!
