The agency we are using uses Life Books to match birth moms with families. The adoptive family creates a scrapbook, or "Life Book" telling about themselves, and this is what the birth mothers look through to choose a family. Our agency has everyone print their books through Shutterfly so they will be along the same lines. I designed my pages using a variety of digital scrapbooking kits & templates (primarily from Scrapmatters) and really enjoyed the process. I ordered our book as a 12x12 hardback, and the quality was excellent. Here is a picture of the actual book:
And here are a few of the pages in the book:

I'm an Oklahoma girl with a heart for God, strong love for my husband & family, and a desire to be a mommy. I love my life and each and every blessing in it. I started this blog to keep people updated on our adoption journey. However, after a month of being listed with our agency, we had a surprise miracle pregnancy of our own! Our sweet baby boy is due May 16, 2010, and I can't wait to meet our blessing from above! I love blogging and use it as an outlet to share what's going on with our family, as well as all my crafty and DIY projects...and of course, I include other ramblings along the way. :) Thanks for stopping by...please say hi so I can come visit you, too!
