Birth Mommas:
Do you get Christmas gifts for your Birth Child/Children?
What do you usually get them?
Does anyone else in your family, or the birth father or his family send gifts?


Adoptive Mommas:
Do you/will you get a Christmas gift for your Birth Mom?
Will you allow the birth family to send gifts?

Do you get Christmas gifts for your Birth Child/Children? Yup! Every Year!

What do you usually get them? When I was pregnant with Rebecca I made her a build a bear. Every year I get her an outfit for her bear. Last year she started playing soccer so I got her a soccer outfit. I'm not sure what kind of outfit to get her this year! I also usually get a movie, a small toy or something along those lines. I want her to be able to keep some items from me, and I know her parents aren't going to want to hold onto a ton of toys, so it's nice to know that she can always keep her bear and a few of her favorite outifts I also always send a gift for her sister as well!

Does anyone else in your family, or the birth father or his family send gifts?
My Mom usually sends something small for Rebecca, but nothing from her Birth Dad or his family

Do you/will you get a Christmas gift for your Birth Mom? I'm not going through the adoption process yet but if the adoption is open, I'll get presents for her and the other birth family members if we have an open relationship.

Will you allow the birth family to send gifts? as long as it's safe for my kids to be around them I'll let them send gifts.

These experiences, while often difficult to bear at the time, are percisely the kinds of experiences that stretch our understanding, build our character and increase our compassion for others."

What do you usually get them? It has changed over the years. Always at least one book for her birthday and/or Christmas since her birthday is the 4th of December. I struggle to find THE right book but insist that I do. Elsewise it is whatever her age group might be interested in at this point.
Does anyone else in your family, or the birth father or his family send gifts? No.
