Adoption shower for older child?
Does anyone have any thoughts on having an adoption shower? One of my professors (my favorite) is 51 yo and is adopting a boy between the ages of 4 and 8 out of the foster care system.
Do people do showers for adoptions of older kids? Any thoughts? A classmate just suggested this, literally like 2 minutes ago, so I don't have any idea if this is done or how you'd do it or what gifts you'd buy. Also: would it be weird for her since we're her students and technically all subsisting on student loans? lol She has us over to her house for cookouts a couple times a year, so the social aspect isn't strange, just maybe the gift giving side.
