14 Unique and Eye-Catching Adoption Finds from Etsy.com

Unique Adoption Finds on Etsy via Babble.com Adopting brings about a whole set of emotions that are hard to explain to others who haven’t gone through the process. Like a pregnancy, adoptive families, extended family members, and friends usually can’t wait to be a part of the new little one’s life – from as early in the journey as possible.

When I think of my pregnancies, I think of how there was a few shirts in particular I couldn’t wait to wear that announced a gender, my twins, or just confirmed that it was indeed, a baby and not simply me. Larger.

I feel the same way about adoption and know others must too. So I’ve rounded up 14 of the cutest, more unique, inspiring Etsy finds to showcase here that are based on the adoption journey. From the gorgeous, handstamped “waiting” necklace I’m going to buy, to a gift for a grandmother, aunt, or sister in your child’s native language, to stuffed animals filled with material from the country your child is from. These are perfect for you, for your family, friends, or someone you know who is adopting!

I love each and everyone of these I picked, and all of them support a small business, adopting family, or work at home parent. Take a peek at the handmade love below:

    100 Good Wishes Quilt
    Isn't this gorgeous? In the northern part of China it is traditional to make new babies a special quilt to welcome the new life. It is called a Bai Jia Bei, or 100 Good Wishes Quilt.

A quilt is made by using a patch of each fabric and a small piece of the same cloth is put into a scrapbook along with the blessing from each person.
