Good News: Today I was able to order Doodlebug a birthday cake and a small gift (teddy bear) that will be delivered directly to her orphanage. I found the care package on www.BlessedKids.com The cake will say “Happy Birthday” in Chinese on the top. Doodlebug will be able to share the cake with all of her friends in the orphanage. She will be allowed to take the teddy bear with her when she leaves the orphanage. The package will also include 2 disposable cameras with a letter explaining our request for pictures and a photo album of her new family.
On Doodlebug’s Gotcha Day, we hope to receive the cameras back full of pictures. We will try to have the film developed in China, so that we can give the orphanage copies of the pictures. We were able to send a family photo album and a disposable camera to Desheng Darling’s orphanage. The staff made some excellent pictures of her environment. These pictures are priceless.
I can’t wait to get Doodlebug’s pictures. I hope she has a wonderful birthday!!!! I just wish we could be with her.
