Care Packages with Cake
Cakes are highly appreciated in China! Foster parents and orphanage directors have told us how they love to receive cakes.
We order fresh cake from a Chinese cake service. Cakes are delivered 1 to 2 days after we place the order.
Important Ordering Information
1. When paying by PayPal, please use your own home address as the shipping address. We will get the orphanage or foster family address directly from you.
2. Please send the Chinese characters for both the name of your child and the orphanage. The characters are needed for accurate identification. Send to Adele at email@example.com. You can find this information in your CCAA acceptance letter or your Pre-Approval letter.
3. A Letter is strongly recommended if you are sending a package before you receive your child. The letter explains the package to orphanage staff. The letter must be in Chinese.

About Your Child
You may add twelve Standard Questions about your adopted child.
We send a Chinese translation of the questions with the package. View the Standard Questions.
SASE - Self Addressed Stamped Envelope
You may include a SASE for the orphanage to send a reply to your letter.
Including a SASE will greatly enhance your chances of receiving a reply.
International postage is expensive for ordinary Chinese families, and orphanages and foster parents appreciate the gesture.
If you want to include a SASE, please email your mailing address to Adele at email@example.com.
We use envelopes and postage specified by the Chinese Post Office for international mailing.
Note: If you do receive a reply, we will be happy to translate it into English. Translation fee is based on word count and is 12 cents per word. Minimum charge for translation is $20.
Call Orphanage - to see if they will send answers
If you send questions with your package, we can call the orphanage to see if they will return answers to us via email, mail or fax. There is a non-refundable $25 fee for calling the orphanage. We cannot predict whether they will cooperate with us. Note: If they do send us answers to your questions, there is an additional charge to translate them into English. Translation fee is based on word count and is 12 cents per word. Minimum charge for translation is $20.
We check with the orphanage to see if they will send us answers to your questions.
Add Photos of Your Family
(Prices are with purchase of a Cake.)
We send your photos to China to be printed in a photo shop as regular 3.5 x 5 prints. Our associates will send the photos with the package.
E-mail your photos to Adele at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
1 or 2 Photos
3 or 4 Photos
5 or 6 Photos
The optional photo album is a soft cover booklet. When you order a photo album, we insert the photos into the album before sending them with the package.
Get Digital Photos
We call the orphanage to ask them for current digital photos of your child plus your child's measurements, and we email them to you.
If we cannot get photos, we refund you $30.
