Welcome to Arrow + Root. We are so glad you are here! We believe that your story matters. Creating your adoption profile is one of the most important aspects of your adoption journey. It is the first, and usually, only opportunity for you to share your story with an expectant family or agency. We know this step can be intimidating. That's why we are here to empower you and fill you with confidence so that you leave your time with us proud of the book that we create that represents your family in the most authentic way possible. We know that standing our and making a great (and lasting) FIRST impression means everything!
I can't wait to get to know you! Mallory, owner
"Love is unselfishly choosing for another's highest good."
Why Arrow + Root?
Sharing your heart, hopes, and dreams with a expectant family is important. This is the critical moment they learn who you are! Choosing your pictures, words, and design are vital in making a lasting impression that stands out.
Having a professionally designed profile book that is expectant parent focused and ethical, will help you stand out and bring you comfort in knowing your book communicates who you are as a family in the best way possible.
Sharing my view as an adoptee, I offer a unique perspective that many hopeful adoptive families won't hear. We also have a birth mom, Leah, on our team who shares her experience with our hopeful adoptive families. We are the first profile book company that covers ALL sides of the triad when we create your profile book.
We are more than a profile book company. We strive everyday to CULTIVATE COMMUNITY by providing a space online and through our social media outlets for all sides of the triad to share their voices authentically!
This is important to us because we feel like in order for adoption to become better, for society to change their antiquated views and language, and for the less privileged sides of the triad to have a better voice- we have to LEAN IN and hear their stories!
Meet Mallory, Founder
Hi! I'm Mallory. I am a Georgia Peach, Chick-fil-A loving southern girl who lives at the foothills of the North Georgia Mountains.
Most days you can find me outside with my son, Grey, adventuring around our property. If I'm not with him, which is a rare occasion, you can find me cuddled up on the couch with a blanket and my hubby watching one of our favorite shows.
I am mostly known for my lax attire of yoga pants and long sleeve tees, my desire to be with my large family, (there are 15 of us) and my work ethic....which somedays gets me in trouble with the hubby as I have a hard time turning it off! :)
I love serving people by using my experience in Graphic Design, Branding and Marketing from my previous work at a Pregnancy Medical Clinic/ Non-Profit world and utilizing those skills in creating beautiful, modern profile books for families in the midst of the adoption journey. That is one of the many reasons I am so passionate about having a pretty profile book that tells these amazing expectant parents your family's story.
The things I am most passionate about are my 5 adopted siblings that each rock an extra chromosome (Down syndrome), my marriage with my wanna be country husband, Josh, our son Grey, and last but NOT least-shouting from the rooftop the goodness of Jesus!
I hope we have an opportunity to chat soon!
Adoption Profile Packages
We will design a profile book that represents YOU in a modern, beautiful, personal way that differs from the typical photo profile. Because we are expectant family focused, you will stand out in a way that shows an expectant parent you took the extra time to pay attention to the small details. Let us help you share your STORY!
We have an exclusive with Leah Outten of Open Adoption Consultants. Leah is a birth mom and has an open adoption with her birth daughter and her birth daughter's family. She will bring unique insight to each client experience as she shares her heart, provides insight and offers education to each client of ours. The following packages will include an hour phone call with Leah as she helps you understand how to speak with expectant parents considering adoption, the benefits of open adoption, how to navigate adoption relationships before and after placement, and tackling the difficult hello and promise letters. Leah will also review each profile book before we are finished with your final draft!
We NEVER use templates. We want your book to be as unique as you are, so we only create custom designs. Lastly, we offer help to you with the editing of your book. We offer guidance and support in your writing as you complete our questionnaire that eases you through the storytelling process. We don't write the content for you as we feel like the best and most IMPORTANT thing you can do is share your heart vulnerably and authentically. WE WILL help in the editing process as much or as little as you need so that the end result feels polished and put in a way that you feel best represents your family!

After placing her birth daughter at 16 years old, she went on to graduate college, marry her love, and they now have 5 children that they parent. When she's not changing diapers or folding mountain ranges of laundry, she can be found writing for various websites as a freelance writer– and hopefully chatting with people like you! She's a coffee mug collector, an essential oil smeller, and lover of deep conversations.
What our clients are saying...
"This process was so easy! Mallory explained everything and was there if I had any questions. She delivered a beautiful profile book that we treasure and was a great representation of our family!"
"Working with Arrow and Root was such a great experience. Mallory tells you what to expect going in to it. We handed over our pictures and experiences and she created a beautiful book that would've taken me months to do (and I know from experience). I appreciated her experience in the adoption world and suggestions she made to improve upon wording. She's quick to respond to questions and overall easy to work with."
"Working with Mallory was a wonderful experience! She put the book together beautifully and was open to any ideas I had. Trying to put you and your families life on paper can be very intimidating and you really hope that it will show who you are. Arrow + Root made that happen! I am so pleased with the finished book and will treasure it forever!"
