Adoption Cards

It is rare to announce the adoption of a child, but some parents choose to sent out cards to friends and relatives.

Traditional wording would read:

Mr and Mrs Debrett wish to announce the arrival
of Thomas Edward into their lives

A more modern approach may read:

John and Jane Debrett
are thrilled to announce
the homecoming of their son
Thomas Edward
Born 9 January 2009
