Birthday Cake For Max

After reading numerous stories that the swine flu was causing travel delays to China, we decided to send a belated birthday cake to Max. It was seeming more and more that we wouldn't travel until later this summer, so this was our way of reaching out to Max. We also sent another camera just in case our first care package didn't make it.

Ann at RedthreadChina was kind enough to send an email stating that the cake made it to the orphanage, but that this particular orphanage was "very serious" about releasing information. In other words, they wouldn't share the photos. :-( I replied that it was ok because we just received confirmation that we are traveling next week. Then yesterday, I received the following photos!! I guess the orphanage had received confirmation that we are adopting Max?! Whatever the reason, I am SO thankful for these little blessings! And can I just say that I want to bring home the little boy with albinism as well!! I do hope he's on a waiting list somewhere!
