I learned about life books in our classes to become foster parents. Our county doesn't require that we do them, but they encourage it. I personally find them wonderful things. I had a sibling group with us for a while and the oldest was 6. She loved helping me put it together and I gave it to her when they went home. We put LOTS of pictures of things we did while they were here (played in the snow, went to the circus... fun stuff). But I also journaled about stuff that happened while they were here and such. I didn't put down anyone in the book, just stated facts. And I made a BIG deal of making a page about them going home and their parents being so excited about getting to have them come home. I am not sure if their parents will allow those pages to stay in, but I hope they at least keep them. It is part of their lives and at least two of them were old enough to remember it and need to have their history together.

Thank you to AlexAiden Mommy for my beautiful siggie!
