Please read the “Template Info PDF* included in your download before you begin using your template.  It answers many of the questions you may have.

When you are ready to print, I recommend Blurb.  If you click on the Blurb icon on the left sidebar, it will give you a discount code!  Yeah, baby.


DYING to get your hands on this book for your babes, but don’t have Photoshop?  Or time?  Or energy?  I got you covered!

If you choose to go the hands-free route, your only roll is to email me your pictures, the birth info of your child, and whether you’d like your pictures color or black and white.  Once I receive your information, I’ll edit your images (if necessary), put together your pages, and email them back to you in 4-5 business days.

At this point, you are free to print your book wherever makes your heart happy (I recommend Blurb.  Click the Blurb icon on the left sidebar for a discount code)!


Laura Wiedl - I love your book!! I would like to make a book for my son but he has two mom’s can the text be changed at all?

Thank You

Rachel - I’m unable to view on the day you were born template to see what it looks like. It only allows me to see adoption.

Kebrina - Are the words changeable? We have a very open adoption and would want to include birth moms name. Would I be able to do that in the template or would I need to do the custom order? Thank you

Patricia - I am not adotping but i love the idea of the book. Am i able to change the words where it says: adoption?
Please let me know as i look forward to buy the template in the next day or so.
Thank you!

Tamara - Thank you so much for letting me know this book is available. My baby is due in 3 weeks and I look forward to getting this for him. I am adopting as a single parent. Is there a way to edit it so it just says Mommy? I love, love, love this book!!!

stacey - thank you michelle! i’ll email you ideas on how to modifiy text, but may also look into designing a page for you and others with similar adoption stories. i realize they are all so very different, so i consider this an evolving project as i get more real-life input! thank you!

Michelle Dean - THIS IS GREAT! I love it so much! I am going to make one for both of my kids. Am I able to edit at all what it says? We did not go a long long way to get them, only to the hospital about 20 minutes away! 🙂 Thank yoU!
