What would be an appropriate gift or gifts from an adoptive family coming to Taiwan to take their child back to their country? They are asking about gifts for (1) the birth mother, (2) the orphanage and (3) people who have helped with the process.
I’m guessing the orphanage would really be most interested in a little red envelope, but that may be impossible. Not sure what the regulations are on the US side, which takes a slightly different view of money gifts than the Taiwanese do.
The suggestions that have been made elsewhere already include body lotion and that sort of thing. I’m not sure how well most orphanages in Taiwan are getting along, but I’ve never heard of a charity organization that couldn’t use cash or solid equipment for whatever they were trying to do. Maybe a quick trip to Costco for a baby seat or something? Just speculating – what do y’all think?
