I made 60+ of these cards as we thought for the last 1 year & 5 months that we were adopting a girl. Due to problems (too many to say) and delays we cannot adopt a girl. We were told that we’re adopting a boy…..I nearly used these anyway but I just couldn’t do it. I’m working on boy cards now and we’re supposed to be leaving any day now. I’m stressed as it is!! I’m sad for the girl we lost but I know once we start bonding with a child that the sadness will be gone. We’ve waited so very long!

Adoption is a wonderful gift from God! We adopted two children 31 years ago. God bless you as you get your new child! I hope that over time your hearts will be mended. ...and save these cards as you may be able to adopt a little girl some day. Cute cards!!

Congratulations on your soon to arrive little boy! I know you're sad about the little girl, but you're right, once you hold that little guy for the first time, the sadness will fall way into the background. Love this card, but I'm sure I'll love the "boy card" too. Good luck with this next adventure!
