So...we finally know the Daughter we have been praying for, we can send her care packages...but it has to fit in a SHOE BOX???? Are you kidding me??? Have you seen me shop??? Uggh..this is going to be tough!
Well, the good thing is..there isn't a limit to HOW MANY shoeboxes we can send!!! So, we will take that!!
Last night, as an "almost complete family", we assembled our care package to our sweet little girl, who is waiting for us all around the world. Since it could only weigh under 4 lbs and fit in a shoe box....we had to be selective in what we sent.
We included in it a soft photo album, introducing us as her family. It is complete with Chinese labels for Mommy, Daddy, Big Brothers and Dog. Both of my Boys had one of these, and they still love looking through them....
And because we are so grateful to the Orphanage staff who is raising our little girl, we sent some treats from our local Asian market. My girlfriend took me shopping there and showed me all of the best stuff to buy. I am stocked up and ready for their next care package!!!
Next, it was time to tape and wrap it up. I felt like I was wrapping up half of my heart in this box. Could I fit a hug and a kiss in there?? Oh..soon baby girl...these care packages will be a thing of the past, and you will be here in our arms...and with all of the comforts of HOME...
The next morning, we headed off to the Post Office! The Postal Workers were so happy to see us coming with a package! They have seen me so many times over the last 8 months rushing to send off this paperwork or that paperwork....they have followed us through this journey!!! And so..now it is off to China. We pray that this package makes it into our Daughter's hands, that she will soon learn about the family who is waiting and praying for her. Her 1st Birthday is late next month......YES.....that care package is currently being planned!!!
