Hmmmm... that's a sticky one. "Etiquette" says you're not supposed to throw yourself one whether the baby's adopted or not. What about starting a wish list and/or registry at some stores. Then, when people ask what you want for xmas, you can also mention that the baby has a wish list. Using big names (like walmart or babiesrus) would allow people to ship gifts to you rather than traveling (if it's not possible to travel) or feeling akward (if they'd rather not sit through a shower). Sorry... I'm really no help on this one.
It's only August. Is it possible that friends or people from work or whatever are either waiting for the baby to be officially adopted, or waiting to surprise you? My son was due in November, and both of my showers (work and church) came late in October.
Thanks to tasha_mae for my siggy!
