Three days until I leave to get miss sassy.
Today we got a package! I love mail.
Do you know what my favorite thing about this adoption has been? (Well, other than Katie. Duh.) The amazing friends I have made, and how much I have learned about the friends I already had. Adopting a child makes you part of a club I never knew existed. And the members are, for the most part, the most supportive, encouraging, excited people I have met. There are a handful of adoptive parents I've met through this process that I know I will be friends with for a long time.
Remember my friend Kelly? She's one of them. Kelly is smart, generous, witty, caring, thoughtful, supportive, humble, and I'm so lucky to call her a friend. She and her husband are the proud parents of Charlotte, who may quite possibly have the cheesiest grin in the DC Metro area.
Well Charlotte's mama sent me a travel care package today.
It was full of goodies!
They sent us Charlotte's favorite toys from her gotcha trip - some squishy squeeky blocks and a book Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What do you Hear? that makes all kinds of animal noises, some Dove chocolates (YUM!), Milano cookies, and Cheez-Its. It's a perfect care package!
Thank you Dirkes family! Your treats are already packed!!
