To Brenda Perez's Secret Pal


Dear Secret Pal,

I came home from a wedding shower today, and found that I had received my package from you. What a happy day! We love all the great things, especially the pink puppy and bath robe. How adorable! Thank you so much! My kids were asking, "Mom, what's in the box?" And when I opened it, I just kept pulling things out like Houdini's box. How did you fit so much stuff in that little box??? It's magic, and great fun! Now we just need the beautiful Chinese princess to wrap in this lovely hooded bath towel and our joy will be complete. Thanks for everything!

Brenda Perez

Thank you secret pal!



Thank you so much for all of the wonderful pressies you sent. The book and toys have proved very popular with Asher and Abi (as you might guess) who insist they will share them with their mei mei/di di! I personally can't wait to have a long soak in the tub myself with the delicious smelling candle lit. The flannels with little animals on are so cute and the small ones will be perfect for packing on our trip to China. Thank you for everything!

To Alison & Chris's Secret Pal

Thanks so much for the wonderful gifts! I will have to stop myself from bring the cute bath critters into *my* bath! The thermometer is so cool and useful! This really raised my spirits expecially in light of the long wait ahead! Your thoughtful gifts reassured me that I will have a beautiful baby to bath! I am without camera at present, so I can't show how cute the little bath critters are... they quack and ribbett (sp?) Thanks again, you are the best! Alison and Chris

Many thanks to my pal!

Check out how cute this towel set is -- I love it! Thank you so much Pal!! My cat is very interested in anything new that comes into the house - I think he is already guarding the baby's items! He is going to be a fierce guard cat, I think!

Many ((((((hugs)))))) to my Pal! :)

Many thanks, Secret Pal! From Chrissie


Thank you, Secret Pal for my April gift! I received it today when I got home from work, and no I didn't wait for my husband to get home from work to open it! I love everything...

Thank You Secret Pal

Thank you so very much secret pal. You are the greatest pal! I absolutely loved everying in my package. I have two other boys (2.5yr old twins) and they both wanted everything in there. I tols them that they have to wait for baby sister Miah to come home. Little do they understand that its probably a long wait. Okay maybe I will let them play with the fauset guard for now. Thank you for the special gift for me to pamper myself a little and the hubby stole my candy bar! I guess I could share one thing with him. Cant wait to wrap my little girl in the towel after a nice bath. THANK YOU again!!
Dawn & Michael Metott

Many Thanks To My Secret Pal!


I actually received this package on Monday, just as I was about to leave for the airport to go on a 2 day business trip. I called my husband immediately at work, and told him he'd have a surprise sitting on the dining room table, but that he could not under any circumstance open the beautifully wrapped packages till I got home Wednesday evening! I wanted him to see how lovely they were wrapped and I thought it would be great if we could open together.

I had thought about those packages often throughout the time I was gone, wondering what was inside. Wenesday evening finally came. How I love the rubber ducky, bath time book and cat puppet/wash cloth. I am thrilled!!
Thank you secret pal for these wonderful gifts that I know Renee will love (Mom and Dad already do too!!). Also, thank you for how beautifully you wrapped them with the little flowers.
As has been said over and over, you made my day!!!!!

To Catherine's Secret Pal...Thank You!!

I arrived home today to find a package waiting for me. Yeah!!! (Can I tell you how nice it is to be happy for mail! Normally it's just bills and junk mail. All the adoption packages are such a wonderful change!)

I opened my gift to find this cute duckie towel + a momma duck with her 3 babies. I know Hannah will enjoy chasing the little rubber duckies around the tub and I'll enjoy wrapping her up in the warm hooded towel! You're so thoughtful!

Thanks again Secret Pal!

I Love My Gift!


I received the most beautiful set of towels along with the cutest frog washcloth. I couldn't believe it but the towels match exactly the theme in Allison's nursery. They are white with pink and green stitching and butterflies and ladybugs on them. It is an awesome gift and I obviously have an awesome secret pal! Thanks!!

Thank you Secret Pal!!!


I just want to give you a great big hug right now! You really lifted my spirits today when I came home and saw my first package. I got a very neat rubber ducky that takes the temperature of the water. I also received cute bath toys for Jensen- a counting bath bucket (how clever!) and also baby bath turtles. They are so adorable!!! Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart!!! Merci, gracias, danke!!!!!!!

Thank you Secret Pal!




I got home tonight on a very rainy Monday to see a package waiting for me. It was my first surprise from my new Secret Pal! Such a lovely way to end a hectic workday. Everything was individually wrapped. Thanks so much! The toys are adorable! My Daisy dog wanted to get in on the action. I had to show her them and "remind" her that they were for Daphne. These are going in the hope chest for her to enjoy one day. Thanks again!



The new bath time zoo along with a lovely card sending some cheer my way!















"Mommy...is this my new toy? Can I play with it?"

My wonderful secret pal gift!!

When the mail came yesterday I got a wonderful surprise. I was so excited to see the package from my secret pal. I even made Mike stop cutting the grass to come see what we got. It was wrapped in the cutest ladybug tissue paper! Inside was a hooded towel, washcloths, an adorable bath glove, a waterproof book, and a rubber ducky! I also got the sweetest card. We loved everything!! Thank you so much to my secret pal for making our day. We can't wait for Emma to get here so we can use everything. All I can say is I have one awesome secret pal!
