Announcement Letter of Birth or Adoption of a Baby

Having a baby is truly a wonderful gift, whether he/she is of your own blood or not. You as a parent must be prepared for the sleepless nights, but it is all worth it when you see your baby smile. Before the parents become too busy attending to their

baby, it is great to celebrate his/her arrival. Have plans for your baby arrival party and send a baby announcement letter to your relatives and friends.

A baby announcement letter is a simple invitation to celebrate and see the baby for the first time. It is also a great way to say thank you to your friends who supported you especially for the ones who decided for an adoption. You can invite your closest friends and relatives to see your marvelous joy.

Writing a baby announcement letter is not that hard. You must keep the letter straight to the point and simple. State clearly the date and time of the party as well as the location if it is being held on a place other than your home. Include the baby’s name, length and width, date of birth and date of arrival if adopted, or baby picture if there’s any.

You can also put the names of the grandparents, siblings, and biological mother’s name if applicable. You can also put your personal message and baby passages, but don’t overdo it. Better send the letters two weeks before the party date. Never send these if the mother’s still pregnant or you might need to reschedule the party if it is born too early or too soon.

Here is a sample baby announcement letter of adoptive parents:

Dear Peter,

The Lord blessed us with a wonderful baby girl!

She did not come from Joyce’s womb, but she is a God’s gift that we cherish.

Come and celebrate with the Killian family as we celebrate the arrival of our 6 lbs 20” baby, Kathryn, born on November 14, 2010 in Ohio. Witness her arrival in January 20, 2011 to our home in Maxwell Farm Road at 9:00 am.

Join us, along with the other kids Andrea and Hugh, as we open our arms to this beautiful bundle of joy.

Larry & Joyce
