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.

► Each book measures 7.25" by 7.25", making it the perfect size to keep nearby and close-at-hand.

► Your book will have a front cover just like the one pictured in the main picture.

► There's also an envelope in the back of each book to hold additional photos and other small mementos.

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
► all about daddy
► note from daddy
► note from mommy
► blank page for you to include any additional memories (note from a sibling, additional photos, etc).

/// waiting for you ///

► a fill-in adoption to-do checklist,
► a page to journal about your home study
► note from daddy
► note from mommy
► a page to write about how you are adopting (agency, etc)

/// we're matched ///

► "what we know about your birth family" journal page (this page is optional and can be selected using the "birth family info" drop-down menu on this page)

/// welcome home ///

► 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 date, time, weight and height
► 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!

However, if you receive your book and you are not pleased with it, we will work with you to get it just right.

Shipping policies

We do our best to ship all orders within 5 business days and often get them in the mail much sooner. This time frame does not include shipping times. We will always send you a shipment notification email so please be sure to check the email address associated with your etsy account to receive your shipping notification.

***Please keep in mind that custom requests (i.e. design changes within the book or custom cover paper requests) may extend the completion time beyond 5 days.***

All orders ship first class mail via the USPS. If more than one book is ordered, you will automatically be upgraded to Priority Mail shipment (applies to domestic orders only). For international orders, any customs fees incurred are the sole responsibility of the recipient.

Please be sure your address is accurate and up to date! We will ship to the PayPal provided address or the one entered at checkout if paying via Etsy's direct checkout.

Payments

Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
Please pay via PayPal or through Etsy's Direct Checkout (credit card). Unfortunately, we are unable to start assembling any books until payment has been received.

Additional policies

If personalization is required for your item, it will be printed EXACTLY as it is written in checkout so please ensure wording, spelling, capitalization and any dates are accurate before submitting your order. Sorry, we just can't be responsible for any inaccuracies submitted.

All items in my shop are my copyrighted intellectual property.

Yes! Please let us wrap up your gift and include a free gift note for you! Just let us know how you'd like your gift note to read in the message box at checkout.
Sure! Do you love one of our pregnancy journals but need the baby book version inside? Go ahead and order the baby book but let us know in the message box that you'd like a different cover. You can specify which one you want there.
Yes! We carry books that are similar in content to our baby books for kids up to age 6. Instead of birth pages, these books have a couple of birthday/how we celebrated pages. Also, instead of milestones, they have a favorites section to write favorite toys, colors, games, etc. You can find the older child books in our "Big Kids" section. Please note that you can switch out covers for these. If you want a book for your three year-old but love one of the newborn book covers, go ahead and order the three year-old version of the book and specify cover choice in the note to seller box at checkout.
I know how much you want your journal (it's time to start documenting, right?!) so I try to get my products out quickly. All journals are handmade start to finish, once the order is placed. I usually have a three day turnaround on my books but promise to have them in the mail no later than 5 business days after purchase. If I have a longer than normal queue, and cannot guarantee shipment within 5 business days, I will post this in my shop announcement at the top of my main shop page.

All orders ship via the good ol' USPS. Most books arrive within 3-4 days of shipment, sometimes sooner.
Why am I being asked for baby's first holiday? We order the holidays in the celebrations section of the book in chronological order, based on your child's due date/birthdate. You'll want to select the closest holiday after their due date/birthday. For example, if your child's birthday is May 1st, you'd want to select Mother's Day.
