When we were going through classes with social services for adopting, they told us that we should make up a family book with pictures of the family to show the child when you starting meeting with him. For the adoptive moms who have done this, did you use a photo ablum or scrapbook? Also, how far down the family line did you put pictures? We were thinking photos of me, hubby, our furry baby, hubby's mom, my mom and step mom (both dad have passed away) and maybe my sisters and brother and hubby's sisters and brother. Any suggestions? I'm not sure how many visits we will have with him before we can take him home, but I was thinking of giving it to him when we meet him the first time so that he will have something to have while we are apart. What do you think?
