About the “Lovely Simplicity” Adoption Profile Concept
“Lovely Simplicity” is another popular choice for Adoption Profiles among the many adoptive families we have worked with. With this concept, your “Dear Birthparent(s)” letter starts on the cover, next to two or three of your best images. Starting the copy on the front page also allows for a bit more copy overall, should you need that.
A feature of “Lovely Simplicity” that appeals to many people is the three “sidebars” it offers. You may use these areas for any copy you wish to highlight. Most often, adoptive parents use the sidebars on pages two and three to list the characteristics of the adoptive parents that make them well-suited to the task of parenting. The sidebar on page four frequently contains a sentence or two that sums up your views regarding adoption.
A Closer Look
On a larger screen (desktop or laptop), you may navigate through the slides below by clicking on the dots at the right-hand side of the black bar. On mobile devices, move through the layout by swiping left or right; for best results, use the wide view on a smartphone or tablet. (Note: The final slide shows a coordinating one-page profile, which is required by some adoption agencies.)
If you select “Lovely Simplicity,” the copy count is approximately 7075 characters / 1300 words — as always, 20% more or less is not a problem. We are masters at making sure that copy fits and reads well.
