You May Not Have My Eyes Or Smile But From That Very First Moment You Had My Heart

One day, several years ago, I was on the phone while my niece colored pictures at the dining room table. I don't remember who I was talking or why the subject came up, but I said, "I don't have any kids." As soon as the words were out of my mouth, my niece, then three or four, piped up, "Sure you do! I'm your kid!"

It was the sweetest thing I ever heard and I wanted to create a print with that spirit behind it --a reminder that giving birth to a little one isn't the only way for them to be "our kid".

Then, one day, I came up with these words and they perfectly expressed what I was feeling.

Perfect as an adoption gift, you have the option of customizing it with that very special date your child was welcomed into your family forever.

There are four color schemes available, so please take a look at each of them and let me know which you would like! Also be sure to let me know which date to use -- or if you don't want one at all.

- Blue
- Pink
- Purple
- Peachy Orange
- Minty Green

❤ I have several other prints featuring this quote, which can be found here →

● SIZE: The actual image area is 8" x 10" and is centered on 8.5" x 11" (21.59 cm x 27.94 cm) paper.

● MATERIALS: My prints are printed with fade resistant bright and vibrant inks on a professional luster paper that has a (ever-so-slightly shimmery but not at all shiny!) finish that enhances the colors and makes them pop.

● PLEASE NOTE: Each print is signed and dated on the back and printed to order by me to ensure that each is perfectly perfect. You are ordering directly from me, the artist. I do everything from creating the art, to printing it, to packaging it.

● ALSO: Prints are unframed but if you'd need some tips and tricks I've picked up along the way on easy/affordable/awesome ways to frame this size print, please just ask...there are many options and I'd be happy to share my ideas with you!

● SHIPPING: Shipped to you via USPS First Class mail in a clear archival sleeve within a rigid mailer to make sure it gets to you perfectly perfect, too!

Since these are my original words (that were not anywhere on the internet before I first posted this print), I kindly ask that you not post them on Facebook, Twitter or other places on the internet without crediting a writer, it's no fun to see my work credited to "unknown" or "anonymous" or even being slightly tweaked and sold by others. Thanks so much!
