As I type this, I’m getting all teary eyed and mushy. Because I think that adoptive parents are so incredibly brave, selfless and amazing! Don’t get me wrong, parents of all walks of life are those things, but there’s something about adopting a baby that really gives me warm fuzzies all over. Bringing a child into your life as your own to love, raise and care for is a remarkably beautiful thing. You know what else is beautiful? These adoption announcements. Prepare to get all the feels when you look at these.

1. Jimmy & Leah

Because adoption doesn’t have many of the guarantees that come with birthing your own child, sometimes you don’t know where your baby will come to you from. This map announcement is super cute and creative! A sweet little boy was brought to Jimmy & Leah, filling their lives with so much joy!

2. Troy & Nicole

Two things that can make you smile, no matter what? Babies and puppies. So my GOODNESS this is cute! These four legged fur babies got a new baby sister who I’m sure they love licking and snuggling up to. Troy & Nicole have so much to be thankful for. What a beautiful family and story.

3. Adam & Shelli

Oh my gosh, this is so creative! I can tell just by looking at this adoption announcement that this little guy is so, so loved. What a great way to make memories, even before their sweet boy has arrived.

Adam & Shelli adopted two boys, and they share their struggles and story on their adoption blog, We Love St. Patrick’s Day.

4. Tim & Deborah

Not only did this couple hope to adopt a baby, they hoped to adopt two from India! Can you imagine taking home twice the love? How amazing. Deborah speaks beautiful words about adoption on Journey of Faith, where she documents their story:

“Adoption affirms to my child  that she is of incredible value, and that she belongs with her Mama and Papa. Adoption gives her a future, and a here and now, in a family. Her family. Adoption helps to restore what has been lost. For everyone.


5. Alisha & Family

I often assume that when a couple is planning to adopt, they don’t have any other children. But the truth is, many families with biological children also feel called to adopt (I hope to fall into that category someday). Announcements like this, that involve a couple’s existing children are sooooo cute! My wish for this family is that their sweet girl gets to experience the joy of being a big sister.

6. Steve & Sara

They say “laughter is the best medicine,” and for Steve & Sara, it seems like laughter was a big part of their adoption process. This announcement is funny and lighthearted, and I love the expression on Steve’s face. The two reveal on their website, And That Makes Three, that a little boy made his way into their home and hearts. So happy to hear such wonderful news!
