I have been in numerous shops to buy a card for a child who is about to get an adopted sibling and there are none! I have seen a card on becoming a big sister but that is no good as it has a baby on the front and the child being adopted is past the dummy stage. Anyone know where I can get a card from please?

I was just about to post to say I've seen them but I didn't realise you wanted one for the sister!
Have you tried one of the websites that let you customise cards? moonpig?

We have a Hallmark card programme,where I make all my cards. There are quite a few adoption ones.

Maybe I could E Mail you one,and then if you had some card you could try printing it out?unless you want to go and buy the programme.Comes in useful at times like this!

BAAF sell Christmas cards - do they maybe sell others? (Not sure myself, just a thought....)

Adoption UK sell adoption cards, so could be worth having a look there.

Adoption UK has a really difficult site to load and unfortunately no suitable cards. sad

most adoption cards are for the new parenst rather than siblings

why don't you look for a blank card with a suitable picture on the front? I've seen quite a few with black and white photos of children. Or one that says best wishes or congratulations and you can add inside ...on becoming a big sister

if the new big sister is quite young you could get a card of whatever she likes eg dora or bob the builder and write the appropriate words inside

i think its a lovely idea to send her a card smile if you include a bar or chocolate/sweets or some small stickers it will be even better grin

I really want a specific card. Just spent ages trying to send an initial e-card to the parents but none will go through.

There's obviously a market out there.
