  • announce it to who? are you thinking like something along the lines of sending out abirth announcement type of deal? or just telling your family. i mean even when people are trying for a baby or get pregnant they don't normally ANOUNCE it unless its surprising first time granparents or something.. they announce the birth though. if your adopting a baby you can send out anouncements saying " name and name would like to announce their newest addition to their family. " or something along those lines. just no birth and weight info lol

  • maybe say "please come join us in welcoming *name* to our family" & have a party! but i wouldn't do a big party if the kid is older and maybe still not ready..?

  • It is hard to anounce it if every one knows you where planing to adopt. Just email every one.

  • Just send out something akin to a brth announcement, with a family picture that includes your newest member.

  • We sent out an announcement similar to a birth announcement when we adopted our son.

  • We don't announce that we are adopting again but when we are finalizing, we generally send an invitation to court (depending on who because we don't invite everyone to court) & a celebration.

  • Just do something along the lines of a birth announcement but instead of birth "welcome the newest member of your family" with their name, etc. My son was an open adoption and we brought him home from the hospital as a newborn. Our family and friends knew we were adopting, so there was no question - but if he had been older, I would probably have stated the date that the adoption was final as the day he "joined" the family and then that day would be celebrated like a birthday.
