Presidential Greeting

When our son was born, we sent in a request to The White House Greetings Office with the hope that he would be welcomed to the U.S. population with open arms. The card, signed by President and Mrs. Bush, arrived a short time later. Anyone interested in bringing some extra joy to their child's life can sign up for a White House greeting here. But be warned: "The White House Greetings Office handles as many requests as possible, in accordance with a set of long-standing guidelines." I guess we should consider ourselves fortunate.

You guys ARE fortunate. We sent off for one and apparently, they had already sent out their quota. :(
