The great thing about having our PA is that we can send a care package and ask for an update.
We used ChinaAdoptionHelp.com and they have been WONDERFUL! They have been so responsive to emails and have answered any questions that I had about sending the care package, I have been totally impressed.
Below is the care package/birthday gift that we were able to send to our son. Ethan was very adamant that his baby brother NEEDED a car for his birthday. I asked the ladies at ChinaAdoptioHelp if that would be possible and they said no problem. When we got the picture below of the car package, I could’t have been more excited to see what they choose for our son. Ethan was happy with their choice of the tractor with trailer, the digger, cement truck and then dump truck. He asked if baby brother will be bringing these toys with him when we pick him up from China. So cute! We also included a photo album with 6 pictures of our family and our home, a camera for his foster parents to take pictures of him (we hope to get this back on gatchya day) some tea for his foster parents and a blanket to keep him warm at night.
We also asked for an update on our son and this is what we got back this morning.
