  • just accept it he made it for you after all

  • agreed accept it, he chose to give it to you instead of his birth mom, you can always suggest making another gift for his bio mom.

  • Definitely accept the gift from him, but suggest he make one for his bio mom too. If he says he doesn't want to, don't push it. If you want him to keep a relationship with her than you don't want to create bad feelings. My nephew got to a certain age and he refused to give his bio mom the mother's day gifts. My sister was able to convince him to make two gifts at school and got the teacher's approval. The next year everyone was happy.

  • Accept it. My daughter always gave me the mothers and fathers day stuff. U don't want to hurt the kid's feelings.

  • accept it and help him to make another one

  • accept it and ask him to make one for bio mom - if he refuses then, ask him to help you pick one out at the store. I'd want to show him that you care for his bio mom, too. (even if you don't)

  • I'd accept it with open arms; he made it for you. Suggesting and helping him (if he chooses to) make something for his biological mom is also a good idea, but it depends on what age he is. If he's old enough to make his own choices, let him choose to make another gift for her on his own. If he isn't, help him make her one, especially if she's a part of his life.
