Cause everyone likes to get mail...

I prepared a care package for my little girl tonight...such fun.  It's getting more real by the day.  My friends got TA today...Travel Approval.  I am hoping to get mine in the next few days!  If I don't get this package in the mail soon, I will get there before the package! 

I included a photo album for Emma with pictures of me, my parents, and her room.  I also included some sleepers for other babies as well as some goodies for the nannies.  What I can't wait for is pictures - I included 2 cameras for them to take some pics of Emma with her nannies and friends.  What a gift it will be to get an insight into her life at the orphanage.

When I typed the label for my pic - "mama"...I had a bit of a freak out moment...I'm a MOMMA!!! 

To a real baby...not a baby doll...a real live baby...unbelievable! 

Nothing like feeling like praising God and puking in the same moment!

I am definitely feeling the "praising God and puking at the same moment" right now. Oh, I'm praying that your TA miraculously appears today or Monday. Your care package is adorable and the photo book will be a precious keepsake for you both. Oh, I cannot wait to see her in your arms!

It's neat to be able to do something tangible for Emma! Makes it more real. You are right though about beating the package!

The care package is wonderful. I'm hoping your TA comes soon. We should find out either Monday or Tuesday our definite travel plans but it now looks like we will be leaving on May 5th.
