So after reading Brittany's blog, it brought back lots of memories! I wanted to look for my scrapbook page that we did for LDS family services, Let me tell you all right up front, that Brittany's is MUCH CUTER! and back 8 years ago, they didn't tell us any rules about the scrapbook page, so mine would probably go in the hall of shame! As you can see, I am NOT a scrapbooker!! In fact they didn't even call it a scrapbook page back then it was a photo collage! Yes, I am showing my age!So no matter the pages, your birth family will find you, I am living proof! LOL! You must click on the pages to get the full effect...........
I couldn't find the first scrapbook page for our first adoption, but I could find the one we did for the second, I remember we had both pages filled with Sky and our Social Worker said, you have WAY too many photos of Sky in here, the birth mom with think you have no room for another baby, so we did one page of us and one page of us with Sky!
My advice to Brittany is just be yourself! We also had to give a portrait of ourselves and Malen had a Northface coat on, the social worker asked us if we wanted a more formal photo, we later found out by our birth mom that, because of that photo was one of the first reasons she liked us and was drawn to us, the birth father loved to ski and always wore North Face jackets!!
By the way, November is National Adoption month, so I think I will be posting some more adoption stories this month!! Good Luck Brittany
