Birth Parent Gift Idea: Stuffed Animals

By Brittany of Que and Brittany's Adoption Journal

A cute idea that a lot of adoptive couples do is the matching stuffed animal gift. The birth mom gets a stuffed animal and the baby has a matching one too. The adoptive couple can send photos of the baby next to his stuffed animal and the birth mom can see how much he has grown.

We decided on an elephant (Brie's favorite animal) and when we made Brie and Liam matching quilts, we made sure the fabric had an elephant on it. Brie loves her elephant because she can cuddle up with it and she likes it because Liam has a matching one of his own.

Amanda C. even has a separate blog called Gracie and the Bear where she posts monthly photos of her adopted daughter and her stuffed bear.
