I remember the whirlwind of bringing our oldest daughter home. I still can't believe it's been THREE YEARS.
After years of infertility and heartache, it felt like we waited so long to welcome a baby into our lives, when really it was a short 6-month adoption process (you can read more about it here). I wanted so badly to be treated like every other new mom -- embraced and loved just as much as moms who had given birth.
And I think a lot of parents via adoption feel the same way.
Here are 9 gift ideas for adoptive families:
1. Adoption-Friendly Baby Book/Journal
2. Children's Books
3. Freezer Meals

A cute journal to remember the fleeting moments of motherhood.
My go-to place to treat others with a delicious meal is Omaha Steaks.

6. Photography Session
What better way to celebrate the new family than by covering a photo session for them with a local photographer?

7. Personalized Gifts
A family's last name has a whole new meaning after an adoption is finalized. Consider getting a personalized gift for them to commemorate their recent adoption; custom wall art, notepads, and home decor make thoughtful gifts!
