Sophia's Care Package


When you know you have a child half way around the world that you can't get to until two countries an adoption agency and an airline say it is time what do you do? You put together a care package and use yet another government agency the US Post Office to send your child a few things to make yourself feel better and hopefully will make her life a little more comfortable. We did just this a few weeks ago for Sophia. We also sent a few things for Sophia's foster mother, 2 disposable cameras (for her foster mother to take pictures of her and where she is living), and a photo album filled with pictures of our family. Sophia's grand parents all sent her something in the box too. We hope that this package arrived to Sophia's foster mother but we wont know for sure until we are there. We hope she is enjoying the things we sent for her (candy, perfume, nail polish, lipstick and writing paper). We hope that Sophia is enjoying the toys that we sent to her, we e hope the soft blanket is giving her comfort. Most of all we have two wishes... one is that we will receive the cameras back with the photos taken. Those pictures will be priceless to us and to Sophia one day. The other wish is that this care package and its contents show Sophia's foster mother that we are forever grateful to her for caring for Sophia during the first year of her life and that Sophia is joining a family that loves her beyond measure already.....

Sophia's care package looks GREAT. It's obvious that you put a lot of thought and LOVE into it. Can't wait to see the photos from the disposable cameras!!
