Surprise Present -- Thank You

Thank you to the Kyrgz family who sent Ellie this wonderful handmade quilt with "ellie-phants" on it. What a surprise to get a package in the mail that is unexpected!!

It was even more exciting as I let Josh and his friends open it (who knew what it might be, after all) and they were all very excited.

Because the last name was on the package, I was able to do a little sleuthing via a phone call to our agency to find out who the secret giver was and I just want to say a HUGE thank you for the kindness you have shared with our family. You are a blessing!!

For blog readers who like pictures, here's your photo! I know it was made with love for our Princess! That's what makes it all the more special.

Busted!! *smile* It was my friend, T. from California who sent me the blanket. She has officially 'fessed up and I couldn't be more pleased that it was her. I'm just amazed that a "stranger" (in the sense that we haven't met -- only share a love of a country where our daughters were born) would be so kind to go to the effort of making my sweet little one a blanket. It's a beautiful gesture that shows how very, very kind the Krygz adoption community is. I have never felt so much kindness and met so many caring people who literally never argue on the yahoo group. It's such a blessing -- and now this lovely gift. Do you think there is anything sweeter than her finding fabric with pink elephants on it? I love it!!

You found me out?! I was hoping to keep it all mysterious...but that's ok!

I DID indeed make it with love, despite my sewing errors...I'm still new to it.

We're all waiting right with you Maria.

Much love,
