Any advice?  My husband and I are pursuing a domestic adoption and have no clue where to start with this.

Since my girls actually nap (knock on wood), I am going to start trying to work off my negative feedback.  Life got hectic with their early arrival.  I apologize for the inconveniences my flaking caused.

Congratulations!  I wish the best for you and your family.  Do you need help with the wording, layout, or both?

both!  i mean we've seen just about everything under the sun.  we just don't know what to include, what is appropriate, etc (like esp with the religion thing, we've been told 8536845208364508245 028428745 different answers on to say we're this or we're christian but not the denomination or nothing at all)  then there's how to apporach it from what does the birth mom really want to know?  it's really hard to 'sell' yourself  i don't really want to come across like that....it's really hard to explain.  we also dont really know how to sort it all out.

Scrapping craft can be a very good idea to continue thing in flow

My opinion (as an adoptee, and I asked my mom for input as well)... put what you are comfortable with whether that be religion, whatever.  Express your true personality.  My mom and bio mom both suggested making it almost like a print ad - just as long as it expresses who you are and the type of family environment you will be providing. 
I hope I am explaining this correctly... and if you need more help or just want a sounding board to run ideas through, feel free to PM me.
