"First off, your website was easy to use. Uploading pictures to my gallery was easy. When it came time to pick what pictures I wanted to put on my birth announcement they were all there and easy to view/sort. I loved the big selection of birth announcements that you offer. The modern script boy birth announcement was simple and elegant. I loved that I could pick how many pictures I wanted to place on the announcement. I decided to place 7 pictures on the front, 6 were smaller but the center picture on the front was nice and big, it was the centerpiece of the entire announcement. I love the font selections as well as being able to write a little message about my sons birth. The pictures turned out great and the card stock was nice and sturdy. The only thing that I would say that I would of liked is a few more color choices for the border and body of the card. It did not seem like there was a big enough selection of colors. Other than that I was very happy with my purchase and so was my family. It shipped really fast to me and came packaged great so nothing got bent in the mail. I will be purchasing future items from shutterfly such as birthday announcements and photo books."
"I was searching around everywhere for the perfect birth announcement for my baby girl. Once I saw the truffle ruffle girl birth announcement, my shopping was over!! This card is soo pretty! The colors are very soft and not overwhelming. Your biggest decision will be picking out what picture you want on this card! I soo recommend this birth announcement."
"I used this particular style to send out a "6 Month Update" to family members since it doesn't explicitly say "new baby" or "newborn" on it. Turned out super-cute!"
"I ordered birth announcements not knowing what they would look like because I chose a picture that I took with my camera phone. It came out perfect! I was so happy with them."
"Enjoyed making this product, simple to make and very cute!"
Some things in life are worth the wait and your new baby is no exception. Whether you waited months or years for this little one to enter your life, you’ll likely want to shout his arrival from the rooftops. With adoption announcements you can reach out to family, friends, coworkers and any other special people who helped bring this tiny miracle into your life.
While some families bring a newborn into their home, others welcome older children. Either way, your joyous news deserves to be celebrated and shared with a photo shoot and your own personal message. Your family and friends can all feel like they are part of your special experience when they receive your customized cards.
Announcements for adopted newborns will likely include all the standard statistics and information:
Families who welcome a new child who is several months or years old may want to consider including this information as well, so that family and friends can mark their calendars for the child’s birthday. If you are missing some or all of the information, don’t fret. Some families add the adoption date, rather than birthday in these cases, and you can easily leave out any information you would rather not include.
Whether your adoption is open or closed, you will want to preserve your child’s memories for years to come. Custom photo albums are a great way to chronicle family history, childhood accomplishments and even the adoption process. Consider making several for your child as she grows, so she will have a few keepsakes to remember how much she is loved by all her family. There are likely some excited grandparents to include in the welcoming committee and nothing would please them more than a personalized gift with your new baby’s picture on it or a framed print from your photo shoot.
