Thanks to Dave & Di's September Reading is Fun Pals!


Dearest Pals:
Once again you surprised us with some really nice presents.
We like all the books, and the CD ones are great. I myself am a children's book fanatic, and I love Little Golden Books, so I especially liked The Tawny Scrawny Lion.
We hope you're enjoying autum.
By next autum we'll all be reading our books to our new babies!
Love~
Dave & Di

Thank you to Cathy's pal!!


Thank you so much to my pal for this month's gift!! DH and I just love everything. We received 3 cute little board books, Goodnight Moon, and the Bible Storybook for Toddlers. The Bible Storybook has really cute pictures! And I'm so glad we received a copy of Goodnight Moon - it seems like this book is on everyone's must-have list. You have definitely hit a home run once again!! And thank you for your card & message, and your continued prayers. You are a huge encouragement to me!! (((hugs))) Thanks again, Cathy & Mark

A big thanks from the Kramer's!


I wanted to send out a big thank you to my wonderful secret pal. Check out how cute the packages were wrapped. They were almost too cute to open! I got the sweetest card. My pal always helps encourage us. I love the three books she picked out. Goodnight Moon is my favorite. My sister did her nursery in Rainbow Fish and I always loved it. Hopefully Emma will be a scholar and be able to do the numbers in the book! The Busy Bee book is so cute. We can't wait until the day we can cuddle up in Emma's room and read these wonderful books to her. Thank you so much secret pal. I can't wait to know who my thoughtful special friend is!!

Thank You, Shelton's Secret Pal!

WOW!! Thank you so much for the very thoughtful gifts!! I heard the doorbell ring and the dogs go wild and I got so excited! By the time I made it to the door it was sitting outside. I am so glad I was home!

Even the box was adorable! Inside was a ladybug magnet, a couple of wonderful bookmarks, a sewing book, a book called Olivia, and a charming bag that also says Olivia on it!! I LOVE IT ALL! Olivia will love it, too! The "This book belongs to Olivia Shelton" labels were so sweet!

THANKS FOR MAKING MY DAY!!

Thank You Hensley's Secret Pal!


Thank you SO MUCH for the wonderful book!! I was so excited when I got my package in the mail, and was so touched by your book choice. It's absolutely perfect, and I love it! I have seen this book before but never looked inside, and I have to admit, when I started looking through it I got teary-eyed thinking about what a treasure it will be for our daughter. Thank you again for your thoughtfulness! We love it and it will be so fun filling everything out! What a great Secret Pal!

Kadisak Secret Pal

I wanted to say thans to our secret pal. We got the package today and it was so exciting.I was like a little kid on Christmas opening the package. Ivy loved her too. She was so excited to get her own present, since shes gotten used to Addy getting presents in the mail.It was so thoughtful of you.Thanks again!!! Tina

Thanks again SP


Thank you Secret Pal for the great books you sent us. I really like the 'Let's Talk About Adoption' one with pohtos of an Asian girl with white parents, and 'My New Family' is a great simple way to talk about adoption with little ones. The mum and dad themed books are good fun and I especially appreciate the sentiment behind 'My Mum is Fantastic'! I had never come across the story of 'Ping' before, what a lovely book. A big hit all round!

Thanks Gollnick Secret Pal!!!



Thanks so much secret pal :) My daughter Hannah came running in the house yelling "its here! It's here!" We get very excited when presents come in the mail ! I love the books that you chose for Sophie, both of these were on my wish list. The silly song book is lots of fun. Ben and Hannah can't wait to sit with their little sister and read with her. I absolutely love the little outfit you sent this month, it's so soft and super cute. Chris thought the luggage tags were cool, and I have to agree. Thanks for thinking of us, your gifts are always so generous and thoughtful.

Thanks again SP your the best!!
Maryellen, Chris, Ben and Hannah

ps.
You were not late at all, you have perfect timing. We have all been a little impatient this week about the wait (kids included) and your gifts made us all very happy and reminded us that Sophie will be here soon.
