Care Package #2

I sent off Joshua's second care package yesterday to our agency's Minnesota office. Hopefully, it will be on its way to Korea very soon in time for his 1st birthday. Technically, this is the last care package we are allowed to send, but we will see ;-)

This is what we sent:

star on which we recorded us singing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star (he going to be tone deaf!), socks, shoes, 2 outfits, Aveeno lotion, toy turtle that shakes and moves when you pull the tail, frog "lovely" (I bought a second one to have here in case he gets attached to it), and a 1st birthday card

I managed to fit everything in the one gallon sized Ziploc except the stackable cups - maybe next time ;-)


Here is the birthday card - my friend Cindy translated it for me along with a letter to Joshua's foster mother.

It was so much fun putting this together! I am praying it reaches him by his birthday!

That is so precious! You are already such a great mommy and Joshua is sooo blessed to have you!! Continuing to pray for him to come home asap!!

That is such a nice package you put together! I will pray that it gets to little Joshua before his birthday! Those outfits are so cute; they will be perfect for him to wear on his birthday! I'll pray, also, that his foster family takes lots of pictures of him wearing them! :)

Great care package! Oh my gosh, I remember the day I sent Maddyx's 1 year care package like it was yesterday! Unfortunately, ours did not make it in time. And isn't it amazing how much you can actually fit in a one gallon ziplock bag?!? lol! BTW - as hard as it is for us to miss such a special milestone in our children's lives, they have such an amazingly special experience of a traditional Tol in their native country. We were given the most amazing photos and book from Maddyx's FM that he will have for the rest of his life. It is a blessing for them and a sacrafice for us....
