We are so blessed.

A few months ago I got an email from someone who had found out about Baby A through a mutual friend, she instantly fell in love and wanted to help raise money for his adoption. She told me her daughters first birthday was coming up and instead of asking for gifts they were going to ask for donations for Baby A's adoption. I was so blessed by her email and so excited to know how many people wanted to see our boy come home.

Her daughter Sydney had her birthday party on the 10th and we received the package from her birthday party today. We were so excited as we opened the box and looked through everything that was inside.

All of the gifts were so thoughtful! They sent several books to help Baby A learn English.

We got a Target gift card which will come in handy. They also took donations and sent us a check with all the money they had collected. We are so so blessed!

Baby A's  whole body will be covered in Aquaphor before we bandage him and we will go through about 3 tubs a week.We were very blessed by all the Aquaphor they sent us. 

There were several tubs of Aquaphor in the package and these little ones. I was so excited when I saw these because they are perfect for the diaper bag. 

I was so excited when I saw this little dino in the package. When I was pregnant with Judah Kenya picked out a bear dressed in a dino outfit for her baby brother (even though we didn't know what we were having). It has now become his favorite toy and he sleeps with it every night. I was hoping to find a dino for Baby A too but couldn't find one I liked. When I saw the dino they sent I got so excited because it was perfect! It is so cute and so soft I know Baby A is going to love it.

Ms. Sydney thank you so much for giving up gifts on your very first birthday to help bring Baby A home. We are so thankful for your life and we pray you would use your life to glorify God in all that you do. Amanda and Blake thank you guys so much for helping us bring our boy home you have blessed us more then you will ever know! We also want to say thank you to all of Sydney's friends who donated to Baby A's adoption in honor of her first birthday.
