The dreaded baby registry.



Sweet Lisa over at Waiting Lisa did a post yesterday about going to create her registry as an adoptive mom. I am not sure why it is so hard for a store to have an adoption option on the registries. Hello?! Those of us adoption usually have no idea of a "due date". And even if we do, how heartbreaking if your match falls through and the due date changes? Then you have to explain why it changed. Why not put "we are adopting!" and that's it?? Doesn't seem like it would be so hard to me... Maybe I need to write some letters. Wanna join me?

I've noticed that too! I just toss in a much later date as I start to gather lists of things I want. Mostly just sticking to Amazon's wishlist, then I don't have to deal with any date ;)

I'll tag on. I HATED having to include a due date on our registry and in fact, we DID have to change ours, which pretty much sent me into a tailspin there toward the end of our wait. Now I don't care as much (for obvious reasons) but at the time, that HURT.

The baby registry was the worst. No one seemed to get that adoption is a viable way to get a baby. Also, no one seemed to realize I would have a registry, so no one asked, or bought anything off of it.

I complained to our local BabiesRus about the due date thing! Don't know if anything came of it!!
