Who is invited?
Anyone is invited to send gifts, cards, notes of encouragement, etc.
Only family and a very few close friends will be with Rose the day of the shower to open gifts. However, we will take pictures and post them later for all to see.
What sort of gift is appropriate?
The needs are really quite huge, unusual and diverse.
In terms of baby needs, the nursing supplies are of course the first need.
Rose and Brian have also registered for baby items at:
Babies R Us
Buy Buy Baby
They would also welcome anything that would help with their stay near the hospital that they choose
Some alternate ideas would be:
Gift cards for: (Please indicate if you have special desire how this is to be used.)
Unanticipated baby supplies (Stores listed above)
General life expenses (Target, Wal-Mart, Visa etc.)
Medical expenses (Visa)
Restaurant gift cards (Chains or local near the hospital they choose)
Gas gift cards (that can be used in SC)
When will this take place?
The actual shower will be November 19th. You are welcomed to send items any time.
Where do I send my gift?
926 F N.E. Main Street
Simpsonville, SC 29681
(This is a UPS store address, not a P.O. Box.)
Why an online shower?
Because of the nature of Jude’s CDH and the many questions about his future, Rose is uncertain of how emotional she might be at a baby shower. Many of you have expressed a desire to show your love and care and this is the best way that we could think of for you to do so.
And Why is the shower so late in the pregnancy?
We have come to realize that most gift receipts are only valid for 3 months.
Sadly, we have to allow for returns in the event that Jude’s time with us is short.
