Baby Books for Adopted Children

Postby ltaylor » Tue Jun 12, 2007 3:02 pm


I just want to start out by saying that I saw an article published in my local (St. Louis) paper about “baby books” that are tailored for adopted children since they are often a little older when adopted. I have never used this company personally and am not affiliated with it in any way. I wanted to pass along the information because if DH and I decide to go this route, this would be something I would be interested in buying.

The guy who started the company adopted a 7 month old and couldn’t find any “baby books” that fit the situation so he designed his own. Here is an excerpt from the article.

"I wanted to make the book as inclusive as possible, so I really tried to think of all the angles, not just for adopted children but also for foster children," Appel said. That's why he also designed a version for single-parent adopters.

Called "Celebrating My Life," the albums commemorate "The First Time We Saw You," "The Adoption Process," "The People That Helped Make You Ours," "Your First Day Here" and other specially designated events for these special children.

The albums sell for $28.95, and a set of 25 birth announcements sells for $19.95, plus shipping. They're available at www.anotherbranch.com.

Good luck to everyone going through the adoption process.

Thanks for sharing this! I am an adopted parent of a newborn domestic adoption (she is 2 now) and we really love to have the adoption books for her! She is starting to say adoption and we talk about it everyday.

Her birthday is coming up soon so I am going to check them out.

Bet of luck to you!
DH 34, DD 2y/o (domestic newborn adoption), 2 eggs ICSI IVF 5/22 (frozen) twins due 2/9.
