What's a family profile?

One of the most important pieces in your adoption journey will be creating your family profile.   A Family Profile is a creative way to tell a birth mother about your family, your home and community, your thoughts and motivations for adoption, and your hopes and dreams for your future child.  It's a combination of a letter from both you and your spouse, with photos of your life -- family, friends, home, community.
