Anyone want to help with some suggestions on good gifts to give a family adopting an older child from overseas?
A co-worker of mine is leaving next week to finalize the adoption and bring home his son (12yo) and I want to have a gift to give him on his return. I'm asking people in the office to chip in so we can actually get something nice.
So far the only ideas I've come up with is to get them a family pass to a minor league baseball game in town, but that's only like $50. I'm kind of worried that the crowds and noise of that might be too much for them though...
For those of you who've adopted older children, what would have been nice to get for your family on return? Or any ideas of gifts that might have been nice to have before going overseas?
