Chicago woman claims she mistakenly received Obama photo album

Chicago resident Alane Church claims she received a very unexpected package in the mail this week -- a book of personal photos from the Obama family intended for the godmother of Malia and Sasha Obama.

Church said on NBC’s “Today” show that her family received a week-late box of Christmas gifts in the mail on Dec. 31, which the post office had repackaged. Her husband found the photo album at the bottom of the box.

"We were reading the tag, trying to figure out where this came from. It was opened, so we then discovered this was a very personal gift to Mama Kaye,” she said. Church held up the photo album, which apparently was intended for Kaye Wilson, the Obama daughters’ godmother.

Church declined to show any of the photos inside the album, remarking, "We’re sort of wanting to keep it private for Mama Kaye. It’s very special. Very special. Private moments of their year in 2013 together.”

A tag on the album reads, “To Mama Kaye and Papa Wellington, from Barack, Michelle + the girls."
