My sister adopted a newborn and its all finalized. Bm cant take it back. So now my mom is throwing her a BABY shower. While I think a shower is fine i think she should have to call it a WELCOME BABY PARTY or ADOPTION PARTY or welcome baby adoption shower. I think baby showers are for bio moms and pregnant women and its wrong to call something its not. Sister has a gift registry and everything ehich is greedy because if you can afford to pay for the adoption you dont need any help. Sister says she always dreamed of her baby shower but after years of infertility and going to others showers, if is important to her to have as normal of a shower as possible and to call it a baby shower. I think thats dumb. If its not a baby shower, its not a baby shower. What would you think? Should i even go now?

Do you think they should get to call it a baby shower or call it something else?

Why do you care what it's called? It's a party to celebrate a new life entering the family. You might be overthinking this just a tad.

Why be so petty? Really, what difference does it make to you? Be happy for her and call it whatever she likes. Geez, people!

I think you should shut the fuck up and be happy for your sister.

That is all.

It's still a baby shower which is intended to welcome the baby to the family and assist with all the things needed. 

No, you shouldn't go.

I thought baby showers were for people that have babies.

Why does it matter how the baby got there?
