I'm really struggling with this, so I'm not asking in the hope that I'll be told what I want to hear because I truly don't even know what I want to hear.
My brother and his gay partner are having a wedding, of sorts, in July. They sent out invitations addressed from their three-year-old foster son, who is asking people to join them for the "union of his fathers." I don't have a problem with that; in fact, I'm glad the two men finally have the right to proclaim their commitment to each other. But I didn't get an invitation. I'm hurt, since I was unquestioningly supportive of my brother's life choices when he came out, but there's been a rift between us ever since he tried to get me to surrender my baby to him at birth. He said it would be best for the child, since I'm blind. All that aside, when their foster son was baptized recently, I sent him a gift, and I've sent him Christmas presents as well because he's a child and he shouldn't be left out on account of adult problems.
So my questions are, what would be good gifts to give to two men having a union, especially when they've had a household together for several years so it isn't as if they're just starting out? And if I'm not invited to the ceremony but I'm the sister of one of them, do I still send a gift?
Thanks for all opinions.
