Hi ladies! I'm Sara, 22, and single mom to Gemma, 2. I did not have a shower with my daughter. My family presented me with a carseat on Thanksgiving and that was it. Now I just found out that my sister is expecting. She's only 18 and I know this is going to be hard and our family will disapprove so I want to make sure that I'm there for her. I have all of my daughter's baby stuff still so she will have everything she needs plus I have some boy clothing as well. I want her to have a shower just for the experience. Not having one myself, I felt like just because Gemma was born out of wedlock that she wasn't 'special' enough. I really want to make my sister's special.

So far my idea was to get a fire hall/ rec room for a day and invite all of her friend's, family, and all of her bf's family. Of course gifts would be welcome but not expected since I will supply her with almost everything. I would like to play games, have dancing (maybe a DJ), cake, lots of food, and of course great decorations and party favors. I was thinking that I would like to get copies of her ultrasound (when she has one) and put the picture on something like a mug or photo album for close family and then have a baby bottle stuffed with candy or something for friends and not-so-close family. I'm sure I'll need tons of help.

I just wanted to introduce myself and the situation so I'll quit rambling now. Thanks in advance ladies!
