  • well it kinda depends on how old the child is but perhaps a nice scrapbook or photo album or digital frame to store all the pics of her new family? :)

  • Something personalized if you know baby's name, like a baby blanket with baby's name, or a mother/daughter bracelet if it is a girl baby, like this one:

    Do the boys have an x box or a wii game that they might like?

    What about a gift certificate to a photo studio for a family picture?

  • If she's adopting a baby, then any gift you would buy for a new mother would be fine. If the child's older, then all the above suggestions sound like wonderful ideas.

  • I like the family photo idea. Or maybe a donation for her to do announcements? Look on etsy.com for some cute adoption ideas. :)

  • The baby girl: Get her something the parents can use for her... (Clothes, Food, eating utensil etc, or may be even something to keep her occupied whenever mommy and daddy are busy)
    The 12 year old boy: If he has some type of game system (PS3, DS, or XBOX) get him a cheap game from walmart or gamestop or target...
    The 8 & 6 year old: A toy or even clothes

  • You def have to get her something really girl related since she is used to all boys. You could pick up those wooden letters spelling her name and paint them really girly for the nursery.
