A friend is adopting three older children (ages 6, 7, and 11) out of foster care very soon.
She already has a 12 year old at home, so she’s not a first-time mom, nor is she expecting a baby. But I’d really like to throw a shower of some sort for her, or at least arrange for some sort of group gift from our co-workers and mutual friends. But what should you get for a parent adopting an older child? -Anonymous
Any other older-kid adoption parents out there? What gifts would have helped you out? Gift card? Bedding? Clothes? Toys and books? Food?
