Postcard #34 - Japan

This week finds us in Japan.  I again took a look at my National Geographics to check out pictures about Japan.  I checked out the web for pictures .  Deciding this week that I should actually spend a little more time on the postcard, I opted to create my own card.  So I studied the Cherry Blossoms and did my card with markers.  I created the stems, blossoms and leaves, matted picture.....wasn't very hard.  Very Simple Postcard.


Story line continues with Zoey and Bill still unable to have a baby after Sophia.  Bill travels with his business and met a family that knew of a boy who was 5 years old....named Samuel who was abandoned in Japan.  Samuel was believed to have had an American mother and Japanese father but the facts are really sketchie at the orphanage.  After Bill saw Samuel he instantly fell in love with
the little boy. 

Postcard reads:
May 9, 2002
Dear Ann:
Cherry Blossom time in Japan.  Beautiful time of year to adopt Samuel.  Thank you for keeping
Sophia while Bill & I cut through the red tape to get Samuel home from Japan.  I can't believe
we will have a 5 year old & almost 3 year old when we return home.  Hug Sophia for me, hugs
& kisses to John, Andrew & Isabella.  Love Zoey
