So close, yet so far.....A carepackage for Will
Right before we traveled for Sammy, we sent and album of our family so he could see our faces and hopefully the nanny's would spend time with him talking about the transition and who we are and that we should be there in the next 6 weeks or so...It makes it feel close..But I still feel like the next few weeks are going to creep by!!
I've always felt if you sent the family photos to soon, the signifgence for everyone just wouldn't be there, and certainly at their young age it wouldn't stick...he has a bed pillow with our photos i sent in the fall, so maybe he's been sleeping with it for a while??
We also sent a disposable camera, a letter and some candy. We want to be thinking good things when he's looking at our pics!! here's a copy of our letter!
Dear Zhang Liang
Your Mommy and Daddy are working hard to finish the process so we can come see you in China and bring you to the United States to live with us. We are very excited and can't wait to have you at home. You will have three sisters and Zhang Jun will be your brother. We have alot of fun, and there are alot of toys to play with. We are all very nice and we will take good care of you! We have sent some picture of us so you can get used to what we look like. We will see right after the Holidays.
We love you!!
Mommy, Daddy and family
and...we finally got our 800 approval after a long painful wait! Much longer than the average, don't know why we can never get out of that place quickly....i take that back, yes i do...it's our officer!
