Care packages

Today I mailed off care packages for Candace Selam and Sarah Fikir. First they will go to Michigan, to another family who is travelling soon to Ethiopia to pick up their child. They will take the packages with them to the transitional home to give to our children. Since luggage space is tight, we can only send what will fit in a gallon size Ziploc bag. Anna and I bought each girl a shirt, a pair of socks, a little magnadoodle toy and a photo album. We put pictures of our family in the album, with labels telling who's who. I hope they're happy to see who we are.

Oh, that's so fun! It's great that another family can take them for you, and you don't have to ship them - what a nightmare!

The family that is taking them is from your town!

Is the person taking the package the family with the adorable boy and girl twin?
