I am preparing to send another care package to Sarah. I have two new collages of photos of our family. Juergen made large prints, and I covered them with lamination paper, so she can handle them. I bought her an electronic book that has 6 different German children's songs. I am including extra batteries. I hope they let her have the book.It might help her get a bit use to this strange new language...the sound of it. I am sending 200 balloons, and allot of candy for all the kids. I am also packing some good chocolate for the nannies and other workers.
There are new out breaks of the bird flu in many Asian countries. I am praying they manage to control the spread of the disease. China promised to close its borders if there is an outbreak there. This could be a night mare for all waiting adoptive families. Oh God, we really do live in your mercy and grace! Protect our children and lead them quickly home to us! Amen!!!
