Mail from my Circle of Friends and Family

I want to say thank you to all of our family and friends who constantly support our adoption efforts and are walking beside us on this journey. Your love and kindness means more to us than you could ever know.

I am behind in posting my fun mail, so this is a large post!

When we got back from Kansas City and checked the mail, we found this beautiful Chinese New Year card from Aunt Carol. Thank you! It is very special to us!!

Amy at Catching Butterflies sent us this wonderful postcard from Germany!

Our wonderful neighbor Nancy gave us this fabric for Sophia's quilt.

These fabrics are from cousin McKenzie.

This fabric is from Aunt Pam.

This piece is from Kelly at Wanton Wishes..

This piece is from Connie at Somewhere in China!

This beautiful square is from our neighbor Helen.

These ballet shoes are from The Neptune Family at Our Unforgotten Daughter. I know that I still owe you my square and will get it out asap!

This square is from the Phillips family at Phillips Path to China.

I am still short on squares, so if anyone wants to swap just let me know!!

I'm working on mine! I'm glad you have such a supportive network. It does help with the wait.

Wow...I didn't realize you all were going to be in Kansas City!!! THAT is my neck of the woods! If you ever make it back this way again, you will have to give me a heads up in advance!

Wish I would have thought to make a quilt for my little ones...but never ran across the idea until long after they were already here, under my roof! Sure would have helped pass the wait...and would have been such a neat heirloom for each of them to have!

I know absolutely nothing about quilting, but what a wonderful treasure for a child. Yours will be beautiful!

My mom made Sarah a quilt.I can not sew! I haven't seen it yet, but I'm sure it's beautiful! I think the cards you are getting with the fabric is very very nice! Some people are very creative! What a blessing!

I'd love to swap squishes with you (or just fabric if you'd prefer) cuz I don't believe we have.

Just email me (dannyem1973@yahoo.com) and I'll email you my address (cuz don't want to give it on here, sorry)...and anyone else reading this that wants to swap too, just email me...

I love looking at all of the squares that you receive. Soon I will begin working on a quilt for our little one.

On a totally separate note - I was informed that all this time I have been using "wonton" incorrectly on my blog. (Spelling has never been a strong subject.) At any rate, I've corrected the error and the address to my blog has been updated. I noticed that you have a link to my blog on your site and wanted you to be aware of the change so that you could make the correction if you so choose. Our new blog address is www.wontonwishes.blogspot.com

Thanks and have a great night!
