Hi Ladies!
I have a question for you! I have a GF that is adopting a baby next month. She was wondering if it would be ok to give the Birth Mother flowers at the hospital.

Any insight would be wonderful.

Thanks Ladies!

My daughters adoptive parents brought me a beautiful bible, and had the nurses put my daugthers footprints in the front cover. They also went through and highlited certain passages for me. It meant the world to me and still does.
We have an open adoption, so any gift they gave me would have been welcome, but I like that they put a little more thought into it, and got me something personal.

While I don't think flowers are a bad idea, maybe your friend can consider something a little more personal? After all, this woman is giving your friend the greatest gift of all. I hope that makes sense!

I think that is a wonderful thing to do. My daughter's adoptive parents sent us flowers as well. I have the scrapbook of her birth, complete with the card from those flowers. Any kind of keepsake means so much to a birth mother.

I was given (after the adoption in the hospital) a bracelet, with their initials engraved on the inside, that says "with you". It always makes me smile when I wear it.
