Care Package

So I've got my care package sorted out (in my head!) but was thinking yesterday, about how I would get it there. Our agency is not fond of sending packages, AT ALL. But being the "rule-breaker" that I am... I sending a package anyway!! This is my package list, in my head:
*Sassy "Who loves baby" album... with pics of us inside
*a "lovie" - little satin/chenille blanket with a teddy on it - Mary-Mia gave it to me, when I met her in Sydney
*a disposable camera (with instructions on use, in chinese)
*some sweets for Nannies

Yesterday I stumbled acrossed Blessed Kids, which lists HEAPS of orphanage address both in Chinese and in English! Yippee! I knew BK sent care packages, but didn't know about the address list! So bookmark it, for easy finding when it's your time to send a package!

Looking at all those Orphanage names, and Cities, I just kept staring at them (willing Mini to come to us soon?!) Where is she?

Oh goody! I get to cheat right off of you since you're likely to be a month ahead of me.

Thanks for the care package info. My agency doesn't encourage it either but, like you, I don't plan on listening.

Can't wait to see sweet rodentini.

I don't think my care package was received but I would still send one if I had to do it over. It's a fabulous first contact. I also had a questionaire in Chinese - things like what her name means, what her favourite toy is, etc. I'll see if I can dig it up for you.
