It's a bit of a leap to assume that the increased numbers are anything to do with adoption, surely? It might just be that 10 is a "more important" birthday, entering double figures, so they're more likely to want to come.
NDL wrote that "a lot of parents are icky about foster kids for some reason;" I didn't make any sort of leap. Presumably he has more information about the situation than you do. I also don't think your theory makes sense. Do people in your community just not bother taking their kids to other childrens' birthdays until they turn 10?
