We know that every adoption story is unique! With that in mind, we did our very best to make these adoption journals appropriate for each special adoption story. Please select "domestic", "international" or "foster to adopt" on the drop-down menu so we can tailor your book to your special journey.

  • Adoption journals are 8.5" W by 7.25" H with the interior pages being 7.25" by 7.25", making it the perfect size to keep nearby and close-at-hand. Our lay-flat design and simple prompts add to the manageability of our products. Pages accommodate up to 4"x6" photos; 3"x5" and 3x3" or 4x4" square prints also work well.
  • An envelope in the back of each book holds additional ultrasound photos and other small mementos.
  • Free shipping on all books - no code necessary. 

Your book will contain the following sections, printed using a high-quality printer on premium, bright-white card stock (52 pages total):

our journey

  • two page journaling section about your road to adoption,
  • a place for a "we are waiting for you" family photo
  • all about mommy

  • Now that your child is here you can place a sweet photo on the first page of this section and also record his or her name, birthday and the date they came to you (no height/weight to accommodate adoption of older children).
  • journal pages to write about the first time you saw your child, first visitors, etc.
  • first family photo
  • 4 pages to place pictures of your child with visitors or other memorable moments
  • 2 lined journal pages to write down more of your child's arrival story or write them a sweet note letting them know how glad you are they are here!
  • "bringing you home" page
  • a "celebrating you" section to document your shower or other celebration
  • "it's official" pages to record photos and memories from the day your child officially became a part of your family.

FOSTER TO ADOPT: If you select this version of the journal, the name/nickname page will be removed since your child will most likely already have a name when they are placed in your care and verbiage will reflect fostering.
