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 → https://www.etsy.com/shop/thedreamygiraffe/search?search_query=adoption

● 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 me...as 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!


Frequently asked questions about thedreamygiraffe

Unfortunately, I am unable to accommodate rush orders. Standard prints will be put in the mail within 2-3 business days of payment, and delivery time will depend on your location. If you purchase a print that requires customization or personalization, your custom print will be put into the mail 2-3 business days after you've approved the proof.

Within the United States, your package will usually arrive within one week after shipping (many times much quicker!). Prints shipped outside the country can take quite a bit longer and there may be delays due to customs, so please consider this if you need your order in a hurry.

If you need your art for a specific event or an occasion, please place your order well in advance.
❤ I only sell the one size (8.5" x 11") print listed in my shop. I am unable to sell larger or smaller prints, already framed art, or other products featuring my art. I apologize for any inconvenience.

❤ I do not offer gift wrapping services, but if you are shipping a print directly to someone else as a gift, I will be happy to include a note from you to them. Just let me know what you'd like it to say!

❤ PREFER TO PRINT YOUR OWN? Digital printables (in JPEG or PDF format) ARE available for most pieces upon request. Please just ask!
My home, office and I are all smoke-free.

Packages *do* ship from a dog-friendly home. My pups do not come into direct contact with any materials/supplies I use or my workspace, but they do come into direct contact with me, so if you are allergic to animals, please be aware of this!
All South Carolina residents will be charged the applicable sales tax.
I have found that for my prints, First Class typically arrives just as quickly as Priority, but if you'd prefer your package ship Priority, please just contact me before purchasing and I can do that. I do not offer any other upgrades (such as overnight/express) or use any other shipping companies (such as UPS or FedEx) at this time.

All prints will ship in a protective sleeve within a rigid mailer to prevent bending and damage.
I have a HUGE list of easy & affordable framing/display tips, tricks & suggestions. If you'd like this, please just contact me and I'll get it to you!
