Moon Cakes for Mei Mei

September 22,2010
I wanted to send Sophia and Amelia's foster families a box of traditional Moon cakes in celebration of the Festival. Moon cakes are a traditional Chinese pastries that is typically eaten during the time of the festival. We were lucky enough to have a contact in China that went and bought the boxes of Moon Cakes for us and delivered them to Amelia's foster family. She sent back these wonderful pictures of our girl and I guess you can see she like Moon Cakes :). Sophia's Foster family should be receiving their box of Moon Cakes any day now. I wish we could have pictures of them enjoying the gift, but I am sure that will not happen. The Mid Autumn Moon Festival is similar to our Thanksgiving and is a time of giving thanks for the bounty you have. We are so very thankful for all the blessings in our lives. Our two beautiful girls are at the top of that list and we can not be grateful for them with out counting the blessing of each other their foster families...

Are the adults in the photos the foster family. We had photos of Emma and never knew who the adults were and then when we arrived in China we received the photos and confirmed and of course she sees them now and says "Ma Ma" but she still calls me Momma :)
