WADSWORTH – A book of personal White House family photos was mistakenly sent to a suburban Chicago woman, who said she’s making sure the Christmas gift finds its way to the rightful recipient.

Alane Church told NBC’s “Today” show she was surprised to find the “beautiful, personal” book shoved in the bottom of a damaged box of packages her family opened at their Wadsworth home on New Year’s Day.

WLS-TV reported the book included a hand-written gift tag from “Barack, Michelle + the girls.”

Church won’t show anyone what’s in the book. But she said the pictures of first daughters Sasha and Malia Obama offer a glimpse of “very special, private moments of their year of 2013 together.”

The White House confirmed the errant delivery but offered no details.
