We received an unexpected message today from our caseworker telling us that the head of the Asia program for our agency will be going to China next month and is willing to take a care package for us to our daughter. This will be our first chance to send something to her and introduce ourselves. We have to have the package to New York by the end of next week. So this week we will have to decide what to send. We know for sure we will send a small photo album with pictures of us and our house to help her get acquainted with her new family. We will also include a note to her. We are so thankful to have friends that can help us translate the note and make labels for the pictures. In addition, we will include a few small gifts for her. Tomorrow night we will go shopping for the contents of the box. This will be so much fun! We may even get some new pictures of her if the staff get to meet her in person while they are there.
I wish we could pack ourselves up and get sent to China but they did say a small package. I don't think we would fit that requirement.
We are still waiting on our provisional approval from China but that should be coming either this week or next week. We can hardly wait to share more about our daughter with you at that point.
