Birth Parent Gift Idea: Matching Quilts

By Brittany M. of Que & Brittany's Adoption Journal

Ever since Que and I began our adoption journey, we had been hearing about birth parent gifts. One that stuck out to me is the quilt idea!

The adoptive couple makes two matching quilts: one for the baby and one for the birth mom. On Labor Day weekend, my in-laws and I finished them, and then on the 19th, we presented our birth mom with her quilt at our baby shower. We chose a jungle/safari theme because she likes elephants. She really loved it! Here are some pictures of the quilt as we made it:

Below is a close-up of the quilt (you can see the back & front):
