    I'm going to a 'gotcha' party for some friends that just adopted a little girl. I want to get some kind of gift...I'm just not sure how to go about this!

    Here's some background: The couple have a son already (biological) and foster children. This little girl has been with them for a couple of years now and is 8 or 9 years old.

    Are you getting a gift for them or for her?

    Gotcha! Ha, that's funny. My ex-girlfriends parents called it her "Adoption-birthday" instead.

    Honestly, for her it was just like a birthday party -so the same ideas and things can apply here as well.

    How about a gift certficate to a photography studio for a family photo of them and the newly adopted child. That way they can really feel like little girl is a part of the family, and they can look back on it years later with the girl, and they can all get warm and fuzzy inside.

    That's awesome - I agree w/the gift cert for the photo studio. I don't think you can do better than helping them to commemorate the occasion.

    This is a great idea for when we adopt

    :big grin: Gotcha, kid :big grin:

    Out of curiosity, why do anything to make the day more significant than it already is? Doesn't that just serve to remind them that their original parents didn't want them, despite any efforts to enforce the "but WE want you" message?

    Something forgettable and of low significance.
