Not at all weird. I think adoption showers are perfectly normal and necessary. It’s still a childentering their lives even if not birthed by them.

I don’t think it is weird at all and a lovely idea.  I think it is really thoughtful and I don’t have any “tips” only somehow planning/organizing the gift giving so the gifts are evenly distributed for the three children (i.e. not everyone buying for one of the kids)

I think this sounds like a great idea and it’s really sweet for you to suggest it. Can you ask the parents to make a registry of things they’ll need for the kid? Birthday present type stuff sounds good, but the parents may also need to some bigger or practical things

I think this is a wonderful idea!

I would find out their sexes and ages and provide that information in the invitation. People will know what to do from there.

I think it is a fabulous idea. They will need so much stuff and hey- not only new babies deserve to be celebrated right? These kiddos deserve it too 🙂

My mother was just at an adoption shower. The baby is 9mos old so they just got age appropriate items. I think it’s a great idea to show one!

That’s so exciting! I would be so flattered if I was them. 

I agree finding out sizes and things like that would be important.

When my aunt adopted her son, we threw her a book shower. A shower should be about showing your love and support for the addition to a family and doing a shower where everyone brought books for him (age appropriate) helped her build him a little library and feel supported by her friends and family. Just make sure the friends/family know how old the kids are so that gifts can be appropriate!

great idea!! and I think putting the kids genders and ages in the invite is a good idea, like the PP said people will know what to do.

@msfahrenheit:  That’s a wonderful idea.

You and Mother-In-Law can plan the party and have her register for 10 items or so per child. Send out the ages and sex of the children in the invitation.
