Family Adoption Profile Books

Creating your family profile book may be one of the most powerful pieces of your journey, but it also may be one of the most stressful. Where do you begin? What do you say? How do you wrap up all that is YOU in just a handful of pages? The questions are endless. Let us help!

Every one of our profiles are uniquely designed and custom made with two specific goals in mind:

  1. Celebrating + showcasing the uniqueness of your family
  2. While honoring + encouraging the woman who is choosing life for her child

Adoption is overwhelming, this doesn’t have to be! For This Child takes the stress out of making your family profile.

How It Works

Every powerful profile book has three essential elements:

Quality Photos

And lots of them! Once you’re ready to get started, we will set up a Google Drive folder to share photos. You will be provided with a list of required professional and nonprofessional photos, as well as asked to connect with a local photographer to set up a mini-shoot. We cannot stress enough how much the quality of your photos increases the quality of your book. They truly do become the central focus of your book, telling the story of your hearts.

*Because of the importance of quality photos, professional photos are a requirement for all For This Child clients.

Honoring + Engaging Content

Next we’ll work on the written content of your profile. Writing about yourself may be one of the most difficult parts of creating your book, especially in language that honors and encourages the women who are in the difficult place of deciding who might parent their child. To help with this, we have a questionnaire to guide you through your thoughts and prompt important information. Based on your responses, we will compile your content and turn your words into a work of art. We’ll also share a few sample letters to birth moms to guide you in writing your own.

Character

As you might remember, alongside honoring birth moms, celebrating the uniqueness of your family is one of our primary goals! Every book is creatively designed with different elements to fit your family. We will share a few sample books with you and ask for a list of your likes and dislikes in return. We’ll also ask you to share any unique words, pictures, verses, etc. that you might associate with your adoption journey; we will work to incorporate these themes into your family profile.

Once we have everything we need, we will start creating your custom family profile! A first draft takes 4 – 6 weeks to complete. At that time, you’ll be sent a copy of the first draft to review and edit. Once your edit is complete and you feel confident about the final product, we will send in an order for the books to be printed!

Most families receive their final product within 8 weeks.

*If you have any special requirements from your agency such as size, orientation, or required content, be sure to communicate this on the front end.
