4th Care Package

Posted On: Monday, March 12th, 2012 at 9:08 am

Yea!  4th care package sent today.  Or in Todd’s super secret code language…The petunia has been planted.  Bahahaha!  He cracks me up.  I asked him if he got the package sent today and that was his reply.

4th care package.  I only planned on sending 8.  We’re at the half-way point!!  That just leaves April, May, June, and July.  And then we should be there!!!  (Of course, this is all based on my carefully calculated, and highly unpredictable travel estimate of late July/early August.)

Oh.  And I just realized that I forgot to take a picture.  Sorry.  No picture.  (I’ll make up for it though by posting new pics of our boy in the next post.  Promise! 🙂 )  Well, it contained a letter of course.  I wanted to include some art supplies, but I couldn’t figure out where to buy them.  I’ll have to look again for the next package.   We also sent some snacks to share with his friends–nuts, dried fruit, and 3 little containers of gum.  3 containers because he has 2 good friends there, also older boys, and we thought it might be nice if he could give each of them their own gum.  I was thinking about gifts, and how nice it is to receive them.  Then I thought about how much nicer it is to give them, and I wondered if children in orphanages ever have that opportunity to give gifts.  I hope Minyu enjoys giving some treats to his friends. 🙂

    I love reading your progress and the countdown of time. Minyu sounds like a good boy and that is a great idea to include things in the package for his friends.

    I love reading about your adoption adventure. I wish I would’ve kept one when we were adopting, not so much for people to read but for my own sanity and then for our kids later down the road. Best of luck to you guys. We know all about the adoption road. You guys are in our prayers, and so is sweet Minyu.
