Re: Throwing an adoption 'shower' or party?
Ditto to the forever family or adoption party.
Friends threw me baby showers for 3 or my 4 adopted kids, three of the kids came into our family quickly. My oldest took 5 years to finalize and we threw our own party, friends of dh gave us gift cards and toys, but we were not expecting anything. We had family only parties with the finalization of 2 & 3. Our 4th and last will be finalized in a month or so, we will be holding a big bash mainly because this is our last one and she took a while being a foster child.
