Adopting a child is one of the greatest gifts a parent can give them. Children who grow up in foster homes always crave the love and attention of parents who will take care of them. However, adopted children often go through periods of numbness or confusion. They do not know how they fit into their new family, and they may not understand the family's history or traditions.
Gifts such as adoption lifebooks
are a great way to make boys and girls feel at home with their new family. Parents can fill an adoption life-book with personalized artwork, pictures of the family, words of love and support for their newly adopted children and much more.
Adoption life-books often contain information about where a child's name comes from, where and when they were born, pictures of the child with their adoptive parents, messages of love and support, and a summary of important early milestones. Personal stories make the life-book more special to a child, because they know a parent poured their heart and soul into those words.
Life-books differ depending on whether a child comes from the same country or from the other side of the world. Children adopted from foreign countries often have more questions and find it harder to fit in with their new surroundings, no matter how much they are loved. Showing these boys and girls the culture of both their birth place and adoptive home is a great way to bridge the gap and provide them with answers.
Jewelry is another great gift to give adopted boys and girls, especially girls. A beautiful silver necklace with an engraved message is often the best adoption jewelry gift a parent can buy. These necklaces may have a special message engraved on them, along with the date of the child's adoption. Wearing this necklace provides a constant reminder to your boy or girl that they are loved, appreciated and needed by their family. There are also adoption jewelry
items with the a triangle and heart that represent the new family unity.
Other types of jewelry include necklaces with maps on one side and written information on the other. These necklaces may show the city or country where the child was born, along with details about the place, which provides them with a piece of their old home at all times. Bracelets, rings and earrings are other options for adoption jewelry gifts.
Bracelets often feature messages of support from parents, or a child's name. Parents can also get sets of jewelry for themselves and their children. This way, the parent and child are always wearing the same bracelet or necklace, which connects them even when they are apart.Adoption shirts
are another option for adoptions gifts for boy. These shirts often have simple yet endearing messages along with trendy designs. For example, an adoption shirt may have a comforting message such as, “worth the wait” or “Mommy and Daddy's missing piece.” Kids can wear these shirts to school or around the house. It will give them a sense of pride and comfort that their parents are declaring their love in such a bold way.
