Books are always a great gift idea for kids. Besides the fact that reading to children is helpful from an early literacy standpoint, these books also help to discuss topics such as feelings around adoption, birth family and diversity with the child.
Happy Adoption Day Gifts
Adoption day is a big deal in our family. We make the entire day feel special and enjoy spending some great family time. Our kids love every minute of their adoption day! Even though many adoptive families celebrate this day, I found there are very few gifts related to this special occasion but here are some of mine! Since some families refer to happy adoption day as happy family day or gotcha day, I've included those options as well.
Adoption Announcements, Invitations and Cards
Soon after a baby is born, you can expect an adorable birth announcement to arrive in your mailbox. Unfortunately, many of the birth announcements offered don't really work for adoptive families. The great news is that more and more adoption announcements are becoming available. After all, after filing mountains of paperwork, waiting, waiting and waiting some more, you want to tell the world your baby is finally home! Below are some attractive announcements, invitations and cards for the adoptive family.
