Birth Announcements For Adoption – Is There a Difference?

The sentiment underlying each type of announcement is the same: the new baby announcement is a message of pride, love and joy from the parents to their family and friends. Does it really matter how the baby arrived?

Overall, ordering, addressing and sending birth announcements is the same as for adoption announcements. Whether your child was delivered by you, or brought to you through adoption, you have an array of beautiful, creative announcement designs to choose from. Only the message and details on the front of the announcement may differ slightly.

Consider this birth announcement:

David and Laura Jamison
proudly announce the birth of their daughter,
Ashlee Avery Jamison
on February 12, 2007 at 12:51am
weighing 8 lbs, 3 oz and 19 ½” in length

The adoption announcement would read almost the same:

David and Laura Jamison
proudly announce the adoption of their daughter,
Ashlee Avery Jamison
on February 12, 2007
God has truly blessed us
Our hearts and home are complete

Information on Your Adoption Announcement

Adoption announcements do not typically include birth weight and length measurements, especially if the adoptive parents received the child a few weeks or months after the birth. Instead, many contain a special message of love and thanks at the blessing they have received. For many couples who adopt, the adoption itself is the miracle that has allowed them to have a child when Mother Nature would not.

Adoption announcements might also list two separate dates: the date of the child’s birth and the date they were welcomes to their new home.
