Well, I don’t have any case updates to share (boo) but I do have some good news to pass along (yay). As I mentioned last week, our kids (along with 16 others) are now living in the transition house in [Capital City] until their new families come to take them home. We were told by our agency that the house, while very nice and comfortable, was not stocked with toys, clothes, or the every day supplies that they will need to house all these rug-rats. So, last week, myself and a group of a-mazing [Home Country] moms worked together to buy and send tons of stuff to our cuties in the [Home Country]. Our house was shipping central so I was lucky enough to receive all the packages and ooohhh and aaahhh over all the goodies before I packed it all up & shipped it out. And I am so excited about this shipment! There are toys, books, crayons, clothes, undies, socks, plates, cups, plastic forks/spoons, hair bows, vitamins, first-aid kits, etc., etc., etc.! So much fabulous stuff! These items will be used by so many kiddos over the next few months & years during their temporary stay on their journey to their forever homes. I LOVE that we were able to do this! Thank you SO MUCH to all the mommies who participated! I adore you ladies!!!
So, of course, I have to share pictures! Keep in mind when you look at these that these pics were taken AFTER I had already used my mad packing skills to consolidate all the items into an many tiny packages as possible. There was SO much stuff! It was wonderful! The final box of stuff weighed 88.5 pounds!
We are shipping it to [Capital City] using a wonderful company out of Kentucky called O[Home Country]. I HIGHLY recommend this shipping company for all your [Home Country] shipping needs! James, at O[Home Country], is wonderful to work with and his rates are much better than DHL!
So, they should be getting this HUGE package soon and hopefully we’ll be getting some good news even sooner!
