One of my favorite uses for StoryMark is the ability to share good news in a way that’s never been possible before. That news can be everything from an A+ on a test to the life changing announcement, “We’re having a baby!” No matter what you want to share, the addition of your voice or even a baby’s heartbeat makes the recipient feel like they are there sharing that moment with you.
I left friends and family in the great state of Georgia three years ago to head to Washington DC to spend the rest of my life with my wonderful husband. It has been an amazing three years full of adventure, learning and important milestones including a wedding, a first house… and now, our first child.
Although I have always missed home, the moment I found out that I was expecting was made even more emotional knowing that my Mom, Dad, brother and friends weren’t just a short drive away. My husband and I knew that telling all of our family in person wasn’t possible given the timing and travel, so that’s when we turned to StoryMark to help share our wonderful news.
At week nine, we headed to the doctor for a second checkup, knowing this time around we would be able to hear our baby’s heartbeat for the first time. We felt there was no better way to share the news then to send a photo of our beautiful baby’s ultrasound with his/her heartbeat recorded over it. It was such a beautiful moment, and I was thrilled that we were able to share it with our family, even if they were 1,000s of miles away.
