Look What Came In The Mail!!!

Look what we got in the mail today...our adoption agency, Celebrate Children International, sent out this "educational toolbox". How fun it is to get this as we wait for our little boy to be ready to come home!

I already have this book, so I thought that I would do my first ever give-away. Leave a comment if you would like to be in the drawing for this book.
I also already have this book, if you would like it leave a comment and I will be happy to mail it to you. First comment gets it!
We have also added a ChipIn on the side to help raise the money to bring home our little guy! It was so fun - yesterday we received a video of our little Keshawn Lee! What can we say; we are in love!!! I wish that I could show him to you all, but we have to wait till after court approval. (Is it legal to show only a small portion of him?) We also were asked to choose a birthday for him. We have never done that before. So we took the approx. age of 4 months, went back and guess what? It was February...so we chose Steve's father's birthday (who died way to young 22 years ago). And another neat thing is that Steve's father's name was John and Keshawn is a derivative of John. So it just seems so perfect. Hopefully, everything is on it's way to Ethiopia today! Thank you all for your prayers and support!
Can't wait to give a book away to one of you sweet friends!


  1. How cool! Can you put me in the drawing for the first book? Just a PAP now, but I'd love to read ahead and have a reference. What a neat and special thing it is to pick Keshawn's birthday to honor grandpa.

  2. that is such a wonderful idea. I love it.
    I am so happy for your family. Keshawn's birthday sounds perfect:)

  3. I would love to be in the drawing for the good hair book - our three more from Ethiopia come home very soon, likely three weeks, and while we have two boys already from there, our little girl is coming home - and I only know boy hair! LOL!

  4. Great idea! Please enter me in the giveaway!

    I'm traveling soon (a couple weeks) to China, I could probably have it read by then, lol

  5. Cool package with lots of books!! Guess this means you're one step closer! :-) Would love to enter the drawing (would have LOVED that hair book too but I guess I'm too late...)
    HI from me and the girls!! I'm gld you had fun with your family.
    ps....another family posted parts of pics of their baby from Ethiopia. The smile or the eyes or something.

  6. Hi, Shonni, please enter me in the drawing. If I win, it will go to Justin and Shauna - after I check it out to see what an adoptivve grandma can learn!

    All those treaseure must make it seem that much nearer to getting your little guy!

  7. I would love to be in the drawing for the book! I have a heart for adoption but want to read read read as much as I can about preparing for it!

  8. Oh the little things that help the wait go by faster! So excited for your family and can't wait till we can see a picture of your little guy! I have that hair book and it's wonderful. I don't have the other one though. Praying for your family! Amy

  9. That is SO cool!! What a great surprize while you wait! I hate the waiting game, especially now that we know who we're waiting for. Prayin' for you guys too! Miss you and Kalyn and still think constantly of our Uganda trip!

    Blessings, your Lil' bro, James

    Oh, and Cheremi would love to be included in the draw for the hair book, if you haven't drawn it yet.

  10. Oh my goodness! How exciting. Wow!!!! :o) I am nearly speachless. lol
