Edric’s Christmas Package

Twice a year we get to send a big package to Edric JoonSoo, at his birthday and at Christmas. I’ve gotten quite good at stuffing things into a zip lock baggie, so I was ready to stuff a box full of stuff for our little guy. Boxes are much easier to pack clothes in, especially…

Edric’s 12 Package

I sent Edric’s package at the end of November but because he visited the agency a few days before the end of the month he won’t actually get it until he goes in this month. We were finally able to include the last two pieces to his tool set. He now has a complete set!…

Edric’s 11th Package

So I’m a little behind (maybe because I haven’t blogged for a couple of months?) and I have some catching up to do. This blog is called “Hiking Mommy” and I do actually have some hikes to blog about (with and without kids), but those will come in the days to come. Today I’m catching…

Edric’s 10th Package

Wow! We are already at 10 packages. Praying we don’t get to 20, and still hoping that we won’t reach 15….. As each month goes on, I gather stuff all month long and add it to our cabinet above the computer. That way I can pull stuff down and put together a package and have…

Edric’s 9th Package

I just got Edric’s 9th package mailed off earlier this week to travel with a family this weekend. We got photos of Edric last week and showed him playing with the rings and clutching the photo book that we sent in package #8. He should get this package at the end of August when he…

Edric’s 8th Package

Has it really already been 8 packages? Wow. I’m getting quite good at stuffing things in a zip lock baggie. Sometimes I worry if I am sending the right things or if he likes them or if I am running out of ideas to send. However I got Edric’s 14 month photos last week and…

Edric’s 7th Package

So I’m a little behind. I actually sent this package with a friend at the end of May and I am now just getting around to writing about it. However, he gets the packages when he goes into the center each month around the 30th, so I’m only really a day late in posting this…

Edric’s 6th Package

Some days are easier than others to think about packing up packages. I know that Edric is getting great care, but each package also is a reminder that he is not home yet, and I wonder how many more I will have to pack before  he is home and running around the house with his…

Edric’s 5th Package

  Another family is traveling to Korea to meet their little one and have their court appearance and so they have volunteered to take a package for us. I really had to pack this zip lock baggie to get everything to fit (I actually had to tape the top in order to keep it from…

First Birthday Package

The first birthday in Korea is very important. And even though Edric’s is still a little while (April 30th) I didn’t know how long shipping would take and wanted to make sure he had his package in plenty of time. The first birthday celebration in Korea is called a Dol, and there are some very…
