Adoption Cards for the Journey
Have you ever searched for "the card" to send encouragement to a family who is awaiting an adoption placement, or something to celebrate a family's recent adoption of an older child, or a card for someone in your life who is celebrating Gotcha Day? You want something beautiful, but also something that accurately and sensitively conveys your message. Imagine my surprise when I found JUST the place that offers cards to meet these needs on none other than Twitter this morning!
Adoption Cards is a new Etsy Store that offers customized greeting cards for forever families. The creator, Lindsay Lamb, was inspired to launch this idea after her sister and brother-in-law completed two adoptions from Russia and she found herself at a loss when trying to find a card to capture the message she wanted to give. The cards are handmade and beautifully crafted ranging in price from $3.50 - $7.00. Many have suggested messages that you can tailor to your needs or you can customize the greeting. Adoption Cards currently offers cards in the following categories: congratulations, thank you, encouragement/support, and adoption/gotcha day. Lindsay will be adding more designs in the future as the store grows and gains in popularity. Be sure to check it out and she can be followed on Twitter at AdoptionCards.
