Let's say you placed your first child in an open adoption, then had a new baby you were parenting. If the adoptive parents gathered up some t-shirts you originally gave to your eldest and sort of re-gifted them back to you as part of (or alongside) a baby present, would you be...
(a) touched that your youngest could share these clothes with her sibling, or
(b) hurt that they didn't want to hang on to them as mementos for your child, or
(c) annoyed that part of the gift is not only used but a gift that was being returned to you?
I think I know what I'm going to do, but I have made bone-headed moves in the gift arena throughout my life. Everyone's opinions are welcome, but especially any first moms'. What do you think?
