Re: Throwing an adoption 'shower' or party?
OK, so should I call it an adoption shower? Everyone that would be invited knows the situation already. I guess we could do the option for either her college fund (they did that for her birthday) or gifts for the baby/things they need (I mean they still need diapers and stuff, they don't CD). I guess just do it like an open house? Maybe just have food out and let people just come and mingle and open gifts? I'm terrible at planning things like this, but I also think that I really want to be the one to do this for her. I think I 'get' at least somewhat what they've been through (years of infertility before this and we were trying to adopt for a while, though not through foster care).
