Our first package

We sent our first package to Gaëlle & Peterson last week. We really don't know how much they have been told about us. I'm kind of assuming they don't know anything and this will be their first introduction to us. The only thing the orphanage recommended was a photo album. We took our family photos and some of our town along with a picture of the kids playing in snow, and had each page laminated. Then we had the pages coil bound. I was really pleased with the results and think the album will be durable. Plus it can be added to if anybody at the orphanage is willing to thread new pages on. We included a doll and t-shirt for Gaëlle. Peterson will receive a t-shirt, soccer ball, and beaver stuffed animal. I also wrote small notes for each one. I'm praying it will be well received and their hearts will start to open to the idea of their new forever family.
