Scrapbook Your Adoption

A reader shared with me her scrap booking website which specializes in adoption! It is called Scrap Book My Adoption. After checking it out, I was really impressed with all the different theme pages that she has to offer as well her very reasonable prices. I love the idea of just purchasing one unique page to add to your own scrapbook or better yet, let her custom design your entire adoption scrapbook! She has choices for every type adoption imaginable. This could be a great gift for adoptive parents or for your child. If you like her site and her product, leave a comment here!!!

  2. Scrapbook “your” adoption?

    mmmmmm, that doesn’t sound right, that doesn’t sound like something an adoptee would do. Who would want to scrapbook a horrible life experience?

    What next, scrapbook your rape?

    That sounds like more clueless adoptive parents lost in a fantasy land that they are doing a “good” thing.

    • You are right in saying that sometimes people have a bad experience. That is sad. However there are also many people who have positive adoption experiences and would like to do something to share their experience as well as share their story. This is a nice way to do just that. The purpose of “Scrapbook Your Adoption” is to celebrate adoption from all prespectives. It is not meant to be a slap in the face to those who have had a negative adoption experience.

  3. No child wants to be adopted. Those would be the ones having a bad adoption experience.

    Children do want loving parents and safe homes, adoption is not required for this.

    My adoptive parents btw are well-off, sophiticated and kind people. The bad experience was the changing and sealing of my identity. Adoption is not a cute, happy occasion for even the most blissed out, ie parroting what they have been told to parrot their whole lives adoptees.

    It is a grave event and should be treated as such.

  5. You are welcome, but it is not unique, and adoption is not the new pregnant, that is insulting and dismissive to those of us who lose in adoption.
