One More Care Package

Originally we thought we would hold off on sending another care package to Luke and his foster family and just collect things to take with us to China for him, but realizing it was the end of February since he received his last one (for his birthday), we wanted to make sure they knew we were thinking about him and close to coming for him! So....we quickly got together another (smaller) package through Ann of Red Thread China along with a letter. It was a challenge finding things in Ann's store/website that we hadn't already sent, as I believe this is our 4th package sent, in addition to the cake for the orphanage on the Chinese New Year!

But here's what we came up with:




The cookies are for the foster family, as is the letter. The disposable cameras that we have been sending are for the family to take pictures of time we've missed..... Luke's time spent with them. They are supposed to bring the cameras with him on our Forever Family Day, so we can then have them developed and have these photos as treasures!

Isn't that cap so cute? I always liked to put caps on Colt. He looked so very cute and cool in them!

Just maybe we might have time to get another update after sending this package. But if we don't, it will probably be because there wasn't enough time BECAUSE WE ARE ALREADY THERE! :)
