A Welcoming Shower is when a baby shower takes place after the infant is born. It is therefore important to mention the baby's arrival within the shower invitation, even if he does not attend the shower.

Adoptive parents

According to Emily Post you should include the adoptive child's age and clothing size on the invitation to help guests with their gift giving. "A long and challenging journey has come to an end, Come celebrate the new one that is just to begin. Join us for celebrating the new baby adopted into the (parent's names) family and our hearts."
