Shipped

Last night Marc and I went to the main post office in our city to mail a 12.6lb package to Dylan. I was very jealous of the clothes & toys in that box. They were going to touch my son before us. When you send clothing down, it's usually with the understanding that you won't be getting it back. The foster parents keep them for their future foster children. It was with that in mind that we bought a really adorable Eagle's onsie. We are just hoping her next foster son's parents are Cowboy's fans (hehehehe). We also sent down some toys, 6 disposable cameras, and a gift for the foster mother. For those of you who are adopting from Guatemala, Global Express Mail through the post office was $64 for 12.6lbs and they should have it in 3-5 days. Dylan could be wearing his outfits by this weekend! Plus, it's traceable so I can watch to make sure it gets down there ok. Still waiting on preapproval and our newest update. Oh, please stop by Barb's and give her some lovin. The fucking lab misplaced her DNA results. I'm sure they will find them but they are giving her some major stress.

  7. Oh how cool! Maybe you will get pictures of him in the clothes.
    And you sent disposable cameras? That will be amazing when you get them developed. WOO HOO!

  8. Lucky baby Dylan!

    Hopefully he'll be with you before they even finish shooting one of those disposable cameras!

  11. Julie,

    Encouraging news....you have the same adoption attorney that I have (rather, HAD!)....remember me?

    Anyhoo, don't worry about the stuff you send down to GC. Odds are that it will ALL come back to you and then some. I got every single thing back when I picked up my daughter, except for a couple of bibs I never missed. And it was a LOT of stuff because I had gone there in person, visited, and taken a huge bunch of new clothes, toys, bottles, etc....it was plenty. Got it all back. This attorney is no-nonsense and very insistent with the foster mothers. Bet me you'll see that stuff again, or at least a large portion of it.

    The disposable cameras? PERFECT....they will use them and you will get them back. Mine were returned to me diligently, still in the same Kodak wrapper and ziploc baggie that I had sent them in, only they'd been used up and ready to develop. PRICELESS PICTURES!! I can't tell you how much they mean to me.

    Oh well, I just hopped in to say HI and see how you were doing. Happy Birthday, too!!!

    Jen

    PS...email me any time...always glad to help!
