Care Package

I put together this little care package for Evangeline. For some reason, all of my pictures were out of focus, but the package is on its way to Ethiopia now, so this is all I've got.

I sent these two outfits:

Several adoptive parents gave me the idea of sending a baby photo book with our photos in it, so I included that. I also sent the blanket I made, a toy and then diaper creams and wipes for the orphanage, and some lotions, lip balms, and candies for the nannies.


  1. Looks wonderful!
    I know everyone will be so thankful.
    can't wait to meet her.

  2. Oh my. It must have felt wonderful to put this together. :)

  3. Awwwwwwe. That makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. The love you poured into that package is amazing!
    I know for a fact the nannies showed Sam the picture book EVERYDAY and pointed out mommy & daddy. I also know for a fact that he slept w/ the lovey we sent in his crib every night. It had his scent on it when they returned it to us. Evie is so very loved!

  4. What a great idea!! How exciting for you to be sending your daughter those things, makes me SO happy! The photo book with all your pictures is great too, now she can see her whole loving family she will be home with soon! :)

  5. How exciting! Hopefully you will get some of it back - we didn't get any of our outfits or blankets we made for them, but we did get the book back. Anyways, it will go to good use. Oh - please email me and share details!

  6. I can't wait until we get to see pictures!

    I sent picture book also. I think it helps them.

  7. Thank you so much for sharing your experiences with all of us in the blogging world. I've just started going back to some of your older posts and it has been so interesting to learn of the 'process', turns, loops, and hoops you've had to go through. I will keep your family in my prayers as you wait yet again for the next step! Again, thanks for sharing! and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

  8. Its perfect and I suspect the photo album will become a cherished keepsake and favorite book for her! Tyler still LOVES to pull his out and we LOVED adding a family of 4 pic. to its pages!

    So sweet & I hope it brought you a bit closer her and brought a hint of peace.....the care packages always helped me during our waits.
