I am SOOOO excited!!!

On the day we were given Paige we discovered tucked into her rolled up sleeves the tinyest notes with Chinese writing on them. Once we were home we had them translated and sure enough they were the name and address of her foster family! I started assembling a care package and in February I sent it off. Since it was so expensive to send I had no way of tracking it and therefore had no idea if they ever received it. Well in today's mail was an envelope with a handwritten Chinese return address! I started shaking because I knew there wasn't anyone in China who would be hand writing us other than the foster family! Sure enough it is a two page letter (written in Chinese) and several pictures. She included a picture of herself, her husband (?) holding Paige, her daughter (?), her son (?) both grown, and one of Grace and Paige together. WOW! What an amazing connection this will be for Paige. I can not wait to get the letter translated! Hopefully soon!

Glad to hear they got that package! Looks like you guys had fun in Jersey & NY. You've had a busy summer. We are off to Portland 2 weeks. We will have to get together when we get back, you won't believe how big Tegan has gotten. He is walking & talking. The funniest things he says is "OTT", for of course Scott & "I DID IT" - which he says after he does everything good or bad. Paige's hair is getting so long, she is awfuly cute. The boys are looking like they have grown too.

Take care, talk to you soon.

That is so cool, we also send letters to Payton's foster family. It is such a great feeling when they send something back!

Yaaa Hooooo!!!
How wonderful, I have recently received a package from my daughter's foster family also.

No one around me seems to understand how important this is to me!~! Or get as excited as I do. So I wanted to tell you I get it, and I am sooo excited for you too :)
