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 lehall88@yahoo.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. 

4. Delivery time - Cake and flower gifts arrive 1 to 2 days after we place the order.  Pillow packages arrive in 4 to 7 days. All other package options include Chinese Super Express Delivery which is the Chinese equivalent to UPS delivery in the USA.

Disclaimer

It will be up to the orphanage staff to take photos with any cameras we send on your behalf. We do not have any agreements with them regarding photography, and we cannot guarantee that orphanage staff will take good photos or return all of the items or answers to your questions when you receive your child. Orphanages are sometimes overwhelmed with managing the adoption process and can forget to bring some items when they meet you.

Please develop the film in China. The film may be sensitive to airport x-ray machines.
