Yes. I am just now getting Vivienne’s care package off to her. About 2 months later than I had planned.
I know, I stink!
We were told by our agency that we needed to wait until we were LID to send anything, and if you know me, you know I always follow the rules.
So I waited.
But then we moved, like 7 days after we were LID. I had all sorts of goodies purchased and ready to go, I was just missing the single most important component of the care package: the soft, squeezy photo album. You know, the one you send so that they’ll study your face and recognize you instantly on ‘gotcha day’?
But I wanted to be sure to include it, just so she might not be quite as terrified of me on the big day. I do look just slightly different than her foster mama.
So it’s on it’s way. Hopefully, she’ll love all the yummies and clippies and clothes and toys I managed to stuff into that shoe box. I threw some extra goodies in at the last minute, sending the package way off the ridiculous end of the shipping rate spectrum. But Miss Vivi is so worth it.
Hopefully she’ll get the tiniest inkling that there is someone half a world away, anxiously waiting to meet her.
Someday. Someday soon, I hope.
For anyone who is keeping count, today marks 78 days since we were LID.
Just so you know.
