Care Package

I just wanted to share the photos of the care package that Zoe will be receiving on September 15th for the Moon Festival.

Yes, the pillow is rather tacky! But I hope that she will have this in her bed and that it will be our faces that she falls asleep to each night until we go to get her. Hopefully, it will help her recognize us.

I also found out that her orphanage doesn't have an internet connection. The director told Gifts to China with Love that they are using the cameras that we have sent and that they have pictures of Zoe, but because of no internet, we won't get any more photos until Gotcha Day.

Still waiting patiently for our Letter Seeking Confirmation. Who knows when it will come. We are past the average date (we are on day 56) and are just praying that it will come soon and we won't be one of those families that wait 100+ days.

Awww, sweet pillow! I see what you mean about tacky, but it's still beautiful. :) The family we traveled to China with had one sent to their daughter as part of a care package and she wouldn't let it out of her ARMS (never mind sight) for the whole time. Honestly. Every picture they have of their little family has the huge red pillow! :) When they would tell her they were her mama and baba, she would shake her head and point to the picture of them on the pillow. It brought tears to my eyes.

And yes, we're praying for your LSC. We still get our agency's bi-weekly newsletter and one of the families with Children's Bridge got theirs in just 3 weeks. Incredible.

I can't believe that sooner than later you'll be back in China bringing home your little one!! I also can't beleive that it will be 1 - 3 years before we recieve a referral from Ethiopia!! I hope your summer is not going as fast as ours' has.

Hoping and praying that things move along quickly for you! It's a beautiful care package. Which company would you recommend? We want to send a package to Raina in the next little while. Thanks!

I have tried both To China with Love and Red Thread. Both were great and both offers different things. To Love with China gets information very quickly and seem to really love what they do.
