For those of you who have already finalized, Do you celebrate Adoption Day? If you haven't finalized yet, have you thought about if/how you will celebrate?

The one year aniversary of Ellie's adoption was on this past Thursday and I had planned on having a small party to celebrate. Unfortunately we celebrated instead by being finally discharged from the hospital after 24 days. No party for us.

Anyway.....it got me thinking. How do you (or plan to) mark the occasion? Any suggestions for how we can make the aniversary something special? (Better late than never, right?)

I'm just curious to hear everyone's thoughts/ideas.

I think it is nice to let the child pick dinner or a nice place out. With our family, we have bios and our one son who is soon-to-be-adopted. I don't want my bios wishing they had been adopted so they got two parties (birthday and adoption day). But I also want them all to understand it is super special. So I think dinner and maybe he gets to pick the family movie that night or something like that.

Well, I haven't adopted yet but I am adopted. My parents used to take me out to eat and get me a small gift and a card every year. I thought it was really nice. Made me feel really special.

Our days are March 1st and Dec 3rd--we haven't celebrated them since all kids are so small and they're all confused still, but when they're older I will make a habit of doing something little but special
