Giving gifts to the various members of our families can often be difficult when we consider the many forms of adoption (open, closed, domestic, international, transracial, etc.) My favorite non-book choices go almost anywhere, for almost any occasion. These are just a few ideas. Visit our online shop for a wide variety of gift suggestions!
- Wonderful Wacky Women
Artist Suzy Toronto has created a series of drawings and poems, including "she who is an adoptive mother," "she who is my daughter," "she who is a foster mother," "she who is my sister," and many others that make wonderful and decorative gifts, suitable as cards or for framing.
- The English American
English comedian and adoptee Alison Larkin uses her own search and reunion with her American birthmother as the topic of this hysterically funny 70-minute one-woman show. While this is technically listed as an audio book, it's a recording of her live stage presentation (which received a 4-star review from the London Times following its debut in May 2004 on the London theatre scene). Recorded live, some adult language.
- Adoption Calendar
Artist and adoptee Patrick McMahon has created a calendar combining words and images to convey messages appropriate for all connected to adoption, reflecting the many interwoven and complex relationships in our families.
- Cherished Wish Charm/Necklace
This sterling silver charm shows representations of the sun, a heart, and a star to symbolize nature and nurture - birth and adoptive families - combined in the identity of the adoptee. Available as a charm alone or with a chain, it comes with the Cherished Wish poem and is a lovely gift for any member of the Triad.
- "Equal Rights in Adoption" Checks
The brainstorm of Adoption Crossroads, your personal checks can carry the message "Equal Rights in Adoption" below an image of the scales of justice. A great idea for the activist in your family!
