Somewhat like a scrapbook, a lifebook is a detailed outline of the child's life. It may include birth parent information, birth information, and any and all placements through the child's foster care or adoptive journey.

Other page ideas could include: "Where I was born," "My Adoption Day," "My First Parents," "My Heritage," "Why I Came into Foster Care," or "My Dreams for the Future."

Use your imagination and don't forget the child's needs. Check out the following for further reading and information.
