  • White House Greeting


    About a month and a half ago, I posted the information for getting a note of congratulations on your baby’s birth from the White House. My son’s greeting arrived about two weeks ago. In case you can’t read the text, here’s what it says:

    “Welcome! We are delighted to join your family in celebrating your arrival. You have already brought much happiness to those around you and you’ve just gotten started!

    We are glad you are now part of the wonderful American story. Our Nation holds great opportunities for you. May you make the most of your unique gifts and may happiness and love surround you always.”

    It’s a pretty cool keepsake for his memory box! (Someday, maybe, the box will become a beautiful scrapbook … but for now, it’s a memory box.)


    1. Will they do this for birthdays, too? I never got one for my third child and he is going to be four in December. Wonder if they will do it,just so I can have one for each child.

    2. I don’t see why not, since it’s not personalized or anything. I’d say to go ahead and send the info 🙂
