It's definitely not wrong or selfish to want to celebrate your new baby with your family and friends! I can see how adopting from a family member could make the whole shower thing a little sticky though. I was thrown showers for both my daughters a few months after we adopted them. My best friend had a party for each of them at her house, and it was really more of a "meet and greet" than a traditional shower (especially Jacey's, since she was 5 1/2 and we didn't need baby stuff). It's great that you have a gift registry already, that will definitely come in handy with Christmas coming so soon after the baby is born.

People handle the whole shower issue with adoption in many different ways, so my advice is just to hang tight and see what happens as the time gets closer. You never know what someone may have in mind for after the baby is home and things are finalized.
