Touchstone Storytelling is here to help you celebrate and share your child’s adoption story. As an adoptive parent myself, I know how important it is for a child to hear his or her personal homecoming story, oftentimes over and over again! Whether a child’s journey to their forever home starts at birth or years later, a child’s origin and homecoming is something to celebrate and cherish.
I will work with you to produce a fully customized board book for your child. I bring your child’s adoption story to life using simple language while integrating your photos and artwork to create a one-of-a-kind gift.
Stock illustrations can also be utilized at customer’s direction. Customers can provide digital photos or mail hard copies. All materials will be returned to the customer. The customer ascertains that they have the rights to all photos and artwork supplied.
You may order one or more board books. Board books are ideal for ages 0-3.
