I had just bought Cassies wardrob, about $350 worth of gymboree clothes. There was no way I wasn't going to return those, plus they were bought specifically for her and I would have no guarntees of having another girl - with my luck I would have boy Anyhow everytime I looked at them I would have been reminded of Cassie and how I lovingly picked each outfit out for her. So that is why I returned them. I kept my favorite for her memory box and still look at it.

If I had bought furniture and stuff, I'd probably have kept it because it wouldn't be gender specific. But the clothes, nope they had to go back.[/b]
I am so very very sorry you had to deal with that. I wish at the very least that someone close to you had handled that for you. ((((hugs)))) It really does make me sad to think you of having to do that.
