Some of the pictures I have, regardless of the fact that not displayed in my book, had words that were included on the back. One of the pictures told me who my father was, how many sibling I had at the time, and a note from my biological mother. I was unaware that this writing was on the back of the picture until I was in my teens. The only reason I needed to be able to locate this information is because my pictures began to fall out of my life book. It was there that I went on a search for my biological family.
