Does anyone know of a store (actual store or online store) where I can buy a book that I can fill in myself with information about myself and my little girl's birthfather? I swear I have seen a children's book before that birth parents can write in to give to the child as a gift.

I'm really wracking my brain for gift ideas for her first birthday, because I see it as the most "special" one.

I want to get her something she can play with now, like a toy, something she can keep for a while, like an engraved piggy bank or something (I have my eye on a Tiffany's one, but it's $275 before engravement...eeek!), and something she can keep forever...which is the letter I am working on for her.

Her biological father told me he wants to get her a necklace and get it engraved so she can have it when she's older and still make use of it, unlike a doll or something, which would eventually be ruined and given away. I suppose that's a nice idea, but I don't know when or how this new leaf of his has turned over. Oh well.

So, if anyone has any idea where I could find that, I would so greatly appreciate it! (If it even exists..hey, I may very well have dreamed it...) I've been googling for the past hour and can't find anything like it! Bleh.


  1. this it?

    i love that idea :)

  2. or this one?

  3. well those ideas are way better than mine... I was just going to say a baby book might work... but man people have sure one uped that... I may have to buy one for my son's birth mother to fill out (well for me to fill out about her).

  4. Thank you both so much, it's going to be hard now that I have more than one to choose from :)

    Katelyn, I like the baby book idea too! I made one for her before placement, of photos of her ultrasounds, photos from the minute she was born and photos of she and I together in the hospital which I already gave to her family.

    I think it would be a great idea for you to get one for your son that you can write in!
