Letter from Kate's Foster Parents

Above is a surprise letter we received from Kate's foster family. A few months ago, a friend of ours went to Guilin to adopt their daughter, Sophie. I sent letters, pictures and gifts to Kate's orphanage and foster family. I included our address so that the foster family could contact us directly if so desired.

A couple of weeks ago, we got a letter from her foster family. Most of it expresses appreciation and happiness that Kate is doing well. I need to get a written translation, but that's the gist. What a wonderful surprise to receive the letter. I think I'll send them a disposable camera and return postage so that they can send some pictures of themselves.

Oh my goodness, how wonderful it is for Kate and for you guys to be in touch with Kate's foster family. I think the desposable camera is a good idea. So, does this mean you have their return address also to send them more updates of Kate?

Oh my gosh! This is incredibly awesome! It's really inspiring me to get on the ball and send a letter and some pics to Maddy's foster family. I can't imagine how much they must miss her!

You're so fortunate to have this.

Double Happiness!
