I am a Pinterest addict. One of the things that I found on that site was a pin that gave the idea to send a birth announcement to the White House. The original site the pin led to was: http://remodelicious.com/send-your-childs-birth-announcement-to-the-white-house/
I also stumbled across more information at: http://thebump.com/new-mom-new-dad/newborn-basics/qa/letter-to-baby-from-president.aspx?MsdVisit=1
So I figured what harm did it do to send an announcement. And sure enough about 6 weeks later we got a response.
It was pretty cool to get the response and will be a great memory book/box addition.
I also sent an announcement to Disneyland (since I’m a big fan of Disney and hope my son will be too). We got a response from Mickey Mouse and his pals too.
