New Pictures!!

There was a large group from our agency who just went down to Haiti to sign their I-600, and Katy agreed to take our kids Christmas gifts and photo pages to them!! She also got some great pictures! Thanks so much Katy! Tracy took that last one of Philippe, too!




















Patricia and Philippe are in the middle of this foursome - Patricia looks positively gleeful here!



















Here they are with the photo pages and letters from us. They each have a three-ring binder that the office keeps for them and they can go look at the pictures when they ask. When we send new pages, we send cardstock in plastic sheet protectors so that the pages can easily be added to the existing books.



















Sounds like she gave lots of hugs to Katy. YAY!











And it sounds like our Philippe was a little more shy and illusive :)




















Oh, we LOVE new picture day!! Thanks again, Katy and Tracy!

Good idea for the pictures.

The kids look wonderful. Patricia's smile is so contagious! Getting new photos is THE BEST! I am totally going to try to copy your book idea. The ones we send down generally get destroyed or lost really quickly. I love the idea adding new pages instead of sending whole books over and over again. I'm glad I have smart friends like you. Get well soon!

Dawn,

They are just beautiful children. It seems their little personalities jump out of the pictures. I cannot wait until you have a house full of children!

Oh I got chills picturing them reading your letters and talking about you as their parents.

So cute! I'm not sure how adoptions in Haiti work but I hope you get to go see them soon. I can only imagine how hard it must be to wait to bring your children home.

Hope you're feeling better soon!
