5 Gift Ideas for the Child You Placed for Adoption

What do I give this child that I have such a connection with?

Christmas is just around the corner, and if you are anything like me, you’ve been thinking about Christmas since Halloween! There is not a day that goes by that I’m not wracking my brain about what I should get for my mom, my dad, my sister, or my grandmother. That alone is overwhelming enough.

So It’s a whole new ball game when it comes to gift ideas for the child I placed for adoption.  Every year as her birthday comes around, Christmas and other special occasions, I find myself in a rut. What do I get this child that I have such a connection with? I want to show her how much I love her without overstepping my boundaries. So for my sake, and the sake of every other birth mother, father, grandmother, etc, I have compiled a list of five memorable gifts to give to the child you placed.
