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

One day, quite a few years ago now, 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

● AVAILABLE SIZES:

- 8" x 10"
- 8.5" x 11" (which includes a white border around all sides, as pictured)
- 11" x 14"
- 16" X 20"

● MATERIALS: Regardless of what size you order, 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: Prints will be shipped to you from my professional printing partner and will not be signed or dated.

● 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 your print, please just ask...there are many options and I'd be happy to share my ideas with you!

● SHIPPING: Prints 11" x 14" and smaller are shipped flat. Prints 16" x 20" and larger are shipped in sturdy cardboard tubes. All prints within are sealed in poly bags to ensure they will stay dry & protected during their travels. We use USPS, FedEx, and UPS to ship larger prints. No matter which carrier used, you will receive a tracking number as soon as your package is on its way.

My goal is for everything to arrive to you in perfect condition. If there is any problem at all with your order, please get in touch so I can resolve any issue you have.

Thanks so much!

This seller usually responds within 24 hours.

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!
