Sending Sophia a Care Package Via Red Thread China




I heard about this company from Steffie. It is run by a woman named Ann. She is wonderful! They have many services for adoptive families, but the one we are using is for Sophia's care package. You can choose from many different items. We ordered the PJ Package which includes a doll, a pair of nice pajamas, a soft blanket, a camera, candy for the nannies and a letter translated for our daughter.
We also added the photo book. I e-mailed our family photos to Ann and she will put them into the photo book for us.
For an additional $8.00, Ann can make sure that your package gets delivered directly to your child's orphanage. This is important because if you send a package from home, often times it is delivered to the nearest post office to your orphanage and someone from the orphanage is required to go there and retrieve it. If no one from the orphanage claims the package, it may be returned to you at your cost.
Ann is also willing to contact your child's orphanage to see if they will give her updated photos or size information on your child. Many times they do. She contacted Sophia's orphanage yesterday, so we are anxious to see if we can have some updated photos of our girl!

We loved Ann from Red Thread. She was able to get us updated photos and information about our Josie that our agency hadn't supplied us with. I'm so excited that you are at this point in the journey. Hugs!!

I LOVE Ann! She is the best!!! She has helped us with many different things over the last few years...she works so hard to make sure you are happy and is the sweetest gal! We also met her in China and had her help us out with some shopping..outside of the regular shops in the area. She was also the one who helped us get a cake to Mia Hope on her birthday! Can't say enough good things about her...love her!
