A guy is coming to see us about DD life story book next week. He said he would take pics of the house/her bedroom etc and could we choose some more to put in. I am not sure what photos to give.
We have photos from FC so was thinking her first xmas with them, her first birthday, first holiday, first xmas with us and our first meeting with her.

Anything else or something we should change?
Many thanks, I have no idea what I am doing!

Sounds good to me.
Also pictures of her playing with her favourite toy or activity.

Ive included pics I took during intros, celebration day and of DS with each of his adoptive grandparents.

I'm doing his entire book as SW is useless. I'm including some baby pics, pics of his last contact with birth mum (Took place during our intros so FC gave me the pics), pics of the hospital he was born and the places he lived with his birth mum (google street view).

I have also 'located' pictures of both birth parents as SW didn't have any. FC has shared lots of pics of the time he lived with them so I have included a couple of these pics and a page about them.

I found that FC had much much much more than SW and thankfully they emailed me lots of pics.

Thanks minty, We haven't had celebration day yet. She isn't even legally ours yet so possibly a premature visit but oh well.

Unfortunately, despite us asking for them we have no pics of DD with the foster family which is a shame. I will include the rest though.

It shouldn't be this hard should it!

Goes without saying make copies of everything before handing the photos over.

Good luck.
