The Sleigh

Seth has something exciting he wants to tell you...
Your packages are arriving! Every day we get a stack of packing slips, telling us to head over to the post office and pick up the boxes that have arrived in the mail. When our drivers have a few spare minutes between hospital runs, one of them will go over to the local post office and pick up the packages.

Yesterday we received twenty packages around lunch time, and then right before everybody headed home for the weekend... 30 packing slips arrived! Monday is going to be a busy day.

After we've opened up the packages to take out any extra donations, such as vitamins, we write the child's name on the outside of the box in English and Chinese and take it out back to our storage room to wait until our Christmas party. The storage room is getting crowded right now.

We haven't decorated the foster home yet for Christmas, but it's definitely on the schedule for the next two weeks. Have you decorated yet?


  1. Yay! This is so exciting! I am looking forward to seeing the smiles on all of their beautiful faces. It is such an honor to be able to be part of your family this Christmas!

  2. This picture of Seth is so incredibly adorable! Happy Christmas to you all! So glad our package arrived - thanks for letting me know!

  3. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year! So thankful and humbled that we are able to participate in such a tiny way.

  4. So fun!!! Love seeing all those packages :) and my goodness the pic of Seth is too cute!! Trusting that Annabel will be home soon from the hospital to open hers!
