Through Your Child’s Eyes: Create an Adoption Life Book

Creating an adoption life book is a great way to capture the entire story of your child’s adoption, from the phone call or match meeting, to the day you brought him/her home. A life book is essentially a scrapbook created through the eyes of your child. A life book is a visual depiction of your child’s birth story that will always reminder them of who he/she is and where he/she came from.

A life book is useful because:

  • It helps establish a bond between you are your child;
  • Being able to visualize the story, helps your child understand his/her adoption;
  • It will be a lifelong momento.
