Just like our parent to be photo shoot this is another part of our “pregnancy” I didn’t want to miss out on. Because most of our friends and family have no previous experience with or connection to foster care I really wanted to come up with a brief explanation of what foster care is and why we are doing it. Anyone who knows anything about foster care knows this is pretty impossible (which is why I started my Foster Care FAQ series). I designed foster care announcement cards similar to birth or pregnancy announcements to mail out to friends and family.
We included a couple of our favorite photos.
This is my “brief” message, inspired by these cute international adoption Thank You for Asking cards. I ordered them through the fed ex website and was really impressed with the quality. I have never ordered cards from them before so I was a little nervous.
My hope is these cards will help open up discussion with friends and family who may have been nervous to ask questions, and to let everyone know how excited we are to start our family!
