The Generosity of strangers.

When we received the first pictures of T he was laying on a very cute pillow in his crib. We were interested in getting an identical type pillow to have in his crib when he comes home so we asked our agency where the pillow came from and they directed us to the website of a lady here in the states that makes them. I looked at the site and didn't see the pillows listed so I sent an email inquiring how I might be able to get this pillow. I was instructed to email a picture and send my mailing address and she would make it and send it out as a gift. Wait did I read that right a perfect stranger and business woman wants to make and send something as a gift for us and our son? But we were willing to pay whatever it would cost how can this be possible? Not only are we overwhelmed by the love and support of family and friends in this process we are also being blessed by strangers. Below are the pictures of what arrived this morning. Not exactly what he has in Ethiopia but hopefully close enough that he feels comfortable sleeping on it at home.





Aren't they beautiful. If you need a gift for a baby please visit this website and give this wonderful lady some business.

Dude! You mean there are different kinds of Pampers??? Boy do I have a lot to learn. Anyway, I looked at the box and it said "Baby Dry" and flex. So, I guess that's the kind we use! Good luck to you.

hi! I'm glad i found your blog by way of your comment on ours! What agency are you with? We are with AAI. Originally when we started this process, it was 2-3 months from referral to baby home! court slowed significantly for many reasons, and it has recently been 4 months from referral to court, then if you pass, another 4-6 weeks to travel. with the judge in place, they're hoping the time will go back to the original. which would be awesome! :)

Oh my goodness that is so gorgeous! Chenille, minky, and satin edges, sounds like baby heaven! I know your son will love this. What a nice person to send you such a lovely and unique gift. I was just going through the closet with my daughter this weekend and we found her old blanket as well as my own baby blanket (VERY old, ha ha), and she was fascinated and wanted to use them on her little brother. They sure are great keepsakes!!
