- Wedding: May 2014
My parents weren’t around most of my life, however after I turned 18, visited my dad every year in California. Never asked for anything. Sent Christmas & Birthday gifts, baked goods around the holidays, etc. The only thing I ever asked was for him to be there on my wedding day. Granted, he’s in Cali and I’m in MN, but he had a 2 year notice. After the last few months of trying and trying to get him to get his plane tickets, I was done with it. This should not be an issue that I should have to ever stress about. My sister’s foster parent’s back in my home town in PA always treated me like their own and tried adopting me years ago. The moment I asked them to be a part of my special day, they were honored and Peter (dad) said that he was more than honored to have that role. So having said that, what kind of gifts do I give? I was looking at more personalized picture frames and other personalized things, but most of them are leaning towards “little girl” and things that wouldn’t fit. Any ideas??
