Photo Adoption Announcements -- Treasured TimelineThis month’s Featured Favorite first caught our eye because we liked the way the colors of our Treasured Timeline Adoption Announcement perfectly matched the little girl’s dress. When we looked a little closer, we realized there were plenty more adoption announcement ideas in this card that other new moms would love. We contacted the new mom, Amy, to hear her story.

“15 years ago, my husband and I talked about adopting a little girl from China,” Amy told us. “We began our journey to adopt Salem in 2005, waited over 6 years, adopted our son while waiting for her, and finally brought her home in 2012. God has been so kind to bless us with children after a long season of infertility. He has given us a deep heart for adoption as he has chosen to build our family this way, and we hope there are more children to come. Glad to share her story with your readers!”

We applaud the way Amy’s adoption announcement both conveys their family’s joy and involves their friends, by sharing so much more than the date of Salem’s adoption. In addition to the timeline, she also included a prayer of hope for Salem, the meaning behind her chosen name(s), a thank you for the support of friends, and a welcome to participate in Salem’s Blessings Quilt Project. It’s a lot to cover, but this is one adoption announcement that has it all!

As the copywriter for Pear Tree, Cathy sympathizes with those who are intimidated by the blank space inside a 3 x 5" thank you card. Married to an active husband, and Mom to three teenage boys, she finds herself out-numbered and out-voted on pretty much everything, never gets the remote, and is used to receiving blank stares when talking about girl stuff. This blog is both her outlet and her payback.

  1. Beautiful! We did a combo Christmas Card/Adoption announcement last year, and LOVED the “Tagged up Memories” card for sharing our story and showcasing photos of our son and trip to Korea. We also announced our referral a year earlier with “Holiday Joy”. I adore Pear Tree for allowing us so much flexibility to customize colors and narrative!

    1. Hi Nan, congratulations to your family on your adoption of your son last year! I bet he is such a joy to have in your family :)

      It is so great to hear you were able to share your story using one of Pear Tree’s holiday cards. Thank you for sharing your experience with us and for being a loyal Pear Tree customer. We truly appreciate it! :)
