My brother and sister in law just adopted a brother and sister. It is now final. Well my brother is planning on doing a little get together like a party where the family will go to their house to welcome the children to the family and to celebrate that these two wonderful children are now apart of our family. My brother was telling one of his friends that they were planning on doing this and this friend had the nerve to yell at my brother. Saying that he was being selfish and there is nothing to celebrate. It was no big deal. Well his friend said this in front of me and i could tell it hurt my brother so i spoke up. In a nice voice even though i wanted to yell at this person. I told her that my brother had every right to celebrate. this is a great thing that has happened not just to my brother and his wife but our family. we are so lucky to have these children in our live. I just don't understand why someone could be so cold and heartless as to think there is no need to celebrate something as wonderful as this.
has anyone who adopted done something like this were you had a family get together so the family could welcome the child(ren) into your family?

I think it's important to celebrate that these children have an adoptive family as well as each other, it certainly is cause to rejoice. But, it is also important to bear in mind that these children also lost a family that they probably love, no matter how awful the family were. "Feelings about birth parents. It may be difficult to logically understand how a child can yearn for a birth parent they’ve never seen or miss a birth parent who has abused them. Heart connections run deep and are not easily broken by abuse, neglect or adoption" - Marlou Russell http://marlourussellphd.com/Articles.aspx
