Free Printable Adoption Creed

Free Printable Adoption Creed

I have several cousins who are adopted, and while back my aunt shared this beautiful adoption creed with me:

Not flesh of my flesh,
Nor bone of my bone,
But still Miraculously my own.

Never forget for a single minute,
You did not grow under my heart,
But in it.

-Fleur Conkling Heyliger

Although I don’t have any adopted children of my own, as a mother I know the love between a parent and his/her child.  I thought this creed was absolutely gorgeous, and I wanted to share it with you all as a free printable.

I am actually sharing two separate printables of this adoption creed, so you can select the one you like best!

Print one (or both) for yourself or frame it and make it a special gift.

This first version has a chalkboard looking background, and does tend to print best on photo paper.  To do this, simply click on the image below and save the JPG to your computer.  Send it to a photo lab and have it printed as an 8×10.

If you prefer to print it out at home, here’s is the (8×10) PDF file:


If the black background isn’t your thing, I also have a white option.

Just like I mentioned before, if you prefer having it printed through a photo lab, here is the JPG (8×10) file.  To download it, click on the photo below and save it to your computer.

If you prefer the PDF file, simply download the file below.
