Graduation announcements and invitations help ensure that everyone hears the good news, gets to attend the ceremony itself, or is invited to the graduation party.

Express gratitude for the night, and for the inner knowing that daylight will follow.

The media, and the public in general, find these dolls very interesting. They are so life like they are easily mistaken for real babies.
