Care Package #2

Care package #2 is officially on it's way to Korea. It should be there by next Wednesday.

This happens to be Baby Parker's Birthday Care Package. Yep that's right Baby P turns one on the 24th! It's kind of surreal, that's the only way I can describe it. I have to admit it was a tad bittersweet looking at the birthday cards. If you've ever picked out a birthday card for a one year old, many of them talk about the milestones and things that you have been a witness to during the first I did not have a meltdown in Hallmark, but my eyesight might have gotten a tad blurry. Thank goodness for his monthly well baby checks and the the picture updates. We even requested a cross your fingers! Oh and I'm really hoping that his foster mother will put that hat on his head if they take a picture with this care package. :-)

...and yes we continue to wait. One item that we are still waiting on is the legal documents from Korea. I am really hoping that we will receive them the first week in October. There is only one thing left that we need to do in the US and that involves his legals. So hopefully we will see them in less than a month.

We know people are interested in Baby Parker's name once he comes to America. We have it narrowed it down to two. Don't worry we won't keep you hanging too much longer. The names that our family and friends love are: Optimus Prime from my dad, Li'l Al from my sister Alison, and our neighbor always asks me about Cory, LOL!

We hope you are enjoying some beautiful fall weather in your neck of the woods. It's cooled down here, now if we could just get some rain!


  1. well i personally LOVE optimus prime for a name so i hope that's still in the running!

    we're so happy for you! can't wait to see the pics of him going through his package!

  2. I know it's not the same, but when we were waiting for TC with Bethany, I still bought special ocassion cards for her. It wasn't easy writing them at times because I missed her so much, but I'm glad I have them for her now.

  3. Cute hats! Where did you find those :)

  4. Looks like a great care package! I hope to see a picture of him wearing the hat too. Optimus Prime is a fantabulous name.
