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 lehall88@yahoo.com.
We use envelopes and postage specified by the Chinese Post Office for international mailing.

Photo Pillow
top


Familiarize your adopted child with your picture on a pillow.
Adoptive parents have told us how photos, toys and blankets they have sent to their adopted children have eased the transition period from the orphanage to a new family. Your adopted child can become familiar with your faces while hugging this soft, inviting pillow.

The pillow is approximately 12 inches wide. The photo is printed into the cloth in a way that preserves the texture of the fabric. The pillow case is removable and washable.

E-mail your picture to Adele at: lehall88@yahoo.com.  We will process the picture to the correct dimensions and send it to China to be transferred to the pillow.

Fresh Cake

Orphanages love to get cake!  If your adopted child is going to spend a birthday in the orphanage before you arrive, he or she will love to get a birthday cake!   It is culturally appropriate to send a birthday cake any time, even after the birthday date. We order fresh cake from a Chinese cake service.  Cakes are delivered 1 to 2 days after we place the order. The orphanage staff can present the cake to your child along with your care package.

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. We do encourage them to take pictures with the cameras when we call to confirm delivery, but 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.
