would a baby shower for an adoptive mom offend you?

I'm adopting a little girl. She will be here any day now. Obviously the birth mom can change her mind and she's not mine yet but hopefully. I want to have a baby shower about a month or two months after everything is finalized that way we will have time to plan it, everything will be in place, and Baby Girl will be old enough to attend. It all depends on when things are finalized and settled. We don't want to call it an adoption shower as several family members are insisting on. I just want to call it a welcome baby shower or just a baby shower. Other than me not being pregnant and Baby Girl will be there, it wont be different than a normal shower. Do you have any objections? Would you attend if you were invited to a shower like this?

I would def attend! Everyone will want to see the baby. When we adopted our kids we had an adoption party. Bounce house cake lunch fun time.

I absolutely would attend this type of shower. Every baby should be celebrated, no matter how they came into a family. Congrats, mama!

Yes I would attend. I don't see anything wrong with calling it either name though.

I would most certainly attend. I wouldn't have any objection and I would ignore any objections raised as the person being silly and not knowing what they were talking about.

Call it a "Welcome to the Family, Baby" party

I think it's a great idea. Who doesn't like it can stay home. But I don't see why they would object.
