Care Package #1

1 Fancy Nancy with bows and ruffles
2 plastic bead necklaces
1 pair of pink Fancy Nancy sunglasses
1 little bitty baby doll wearing purple
1 Disney Princess camera that says "You look beautiful!" when you press the button
1 little t-shirt and a pair of matching capri leggings
1 pair of white socks
1 photo album
1 greeting card with Mommy's voice recorded saying "Little Sister, this is Mommy.  Daddy and I love you so much and we will be very happy when you come home.  Be a good girl and we will see you soon"...followed by the song "You'll be in my Heart" by Phil Collins

I wanted to say "ewedeshalo" which is Amharic for "I love you" but, well, let's just say I need to practice a bit before this southern girl tries to whip out the Amharic for all the Transition Home to hear!  Pitiful.  Just pitiful.


  1. I love the idea of the card with your voice recorded. What a special treasure!

  2. Yeah for the care package!! And make sure you practice "shent bait" which is I need to use the bathroom - our travel buddies from the south really had to work at making a short e sound and not a short i sound!
    In His Love,
    Mom to John and Ryan

  3. Aw, she's going to LOVE what you sent. And in time, and with God's careful grafting, she's going to totally love all of you too.


Let's keep the conversation going...
