More Pictures of Emma's Orphanage

Below is a picture of the babies on the floor at the Qianjiang Social Welfare Center. Here is another picture of the babies in cribs at the orphanage.
On Tuesday we sent Emma a care package. She should get it in two weeks. We sent a camera in hopes that the Nanny's will be able to get pictures of Emma, her environment, and her cribmates. We think these pictures will be priceless. We are told that at her orphanage they are good about taking the pictures. Of course there is a chance that we may not get any pictures back. We sent a photo album that had a picture of our family, Daddy and Mommy, big sister Kami, big sister Meghan, a picture of Emma, and a picture of our house. I labeled the pictures in Chinese so that the Nannys can point out who we are. We included a little blanket and some gum for the Nannys to share with each other. The most important thing that I included was a book, written in Chinese that asks questions about Emma. Her likes and dislikes. Her routine. If she has a particular friend. What she was found wearing etc. I know I may not get this book back but if I do it will probably be the most important thing that Emma will have from her life in the Orphanage. Pray that we will get this special book back and that the Nanny or Director will have filled it out. If they do we will get it translated when we get home.

Okay, can I just head over and pick up one of those sweet babies crawling around and bring her home already!

It looks like a very clean, well-kept SWI, so for that, you must be grateful. Can't wait to see the photos of you and Mike with your precious Emma!
