Happy Halloween from the Wohlfords!

Thanks so much for my October secret pal gifts! I just loooove Halloween! I even have a Halloween tree! I was having a sad day that day missing my baby, and then I got your gift. I couldn't even wait for John to open it this time. I had been eyeing some of those exact things and not letting myself buy them, so I was very excited to see them in the box! I hope you had a great Halloween too. And I hope you are right--that we get to dress our babies up next year! Thanks so much again. You are the best!!!

Thanks to SHELTON Secret Pal!!

Thank you for the nummy treats and the cute Halloween and Thanksgiving decorations!! Hubby is originally from the south so we loved the dishcloth you sent us! Have a great day and THANK YOU for the love in a box!

The gifts you sent were wonderful. The boys went nuts over the moonpies that was the first time they ever tried them and mine also they were so yummy! The cat is adorable. I dont know where you got the Asian stationary set but it is beautiful! I cant thankyou enough how thoughtful. I plan to use the pen at work everyday and when I see the little girls face on it it reminds me of my little Anisha. The full moon book is neat the moon squeaks how cute!

The Appletons Send A Heartfelt Thank You!

We finally got our digital camera to work so we are just now posting the pictures of the October goodies that our secret pal sent us. Each month we are truly touched by their thoughtfulness and kindness that they package into these uplifting packages! Thank you so much Mr. and Mrs. Secret Pal! We are so blessed to have you in our lives as we journey through these months of waiting and longing for our baby. The Precious Moments stuff was especially touching! You are the best!

Thanks to Cathy's pal!!

Thank you so much to my pal for my Moon Festival gifts!! woo hooo! I got two very nice books, "Moonbeams, Dumplings & Dragon Boats" and Amy Tan's "The Moon Lady."

Thank you so much, too, for the wonderful card with the lyrics -- both DH and I appreciated it so much and thought it was so appropriate! Thank you again, you are a GREAT pal and I always look so much forward to my gift each month ~~ bless you! :)

Thanks Gollnick Secret Pal!!!

What a nice surprise! We have been so busy this month that I completely forgot about secret pal gifts! (I sent my SP her gift earlier in the month before the craziness hit our house!) We loved everything! I had read on APC a few months ago about the Dora doll, but I have not remembered to pick one up, so thanks so much! The panda toy will be coming with us to China for sure. I will be bringing the DVD with me to school on Tuesday to share with my class. For the record they need to cancel school on Halloween....The kids are CRAZY!! I love the little sweatsuit and can't wait to see our little girl in that next year. Ben and Hannah wanted to order Chinese tonight so we could use our new chopsticks and chopstick holders. You spoil us:) Thank you again for your thoughtfulness and generosity

Thank You to the Hawkins' Secret Pal

So sorry this is late getting posted! The package was here when we got home from vacation on the 22nd, I was so excited to get it. Unfortunately my "furry kids" caught a nasty bug at the kennel and I have missed work this week trying to get them healthy again and prevent dehydration!! Well, enought about that. I love the gift and don't mind at all that your skipped ahead one month. I am so ready to travel and these items are great. I really appreciate all the packing info and in China travel info. Thank you so much for everything.

March 2006 DTC Secret Pal Gift Exchange

March 2006 DTC Secret Pal Gift Exchange

I wanted to thank my Secret Pals for the wonderful gifts they sent this month. I look so forward to their box. Every month they choose a charity to donate to in our name and it is always so exciting to see that they choose the ones that we would donate to. This month it was the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Awesome! We also received a couple of books about the Moon Festival (one for kids and one for me). We also received the book that the library bought in our name last month. I haven't gotten to start it yet. I am still reading the book you sent me last month about the three women in China. Can't remember the title, but the book is fantastic. Oh and I love Terry Garlock! I have his Melanie & Me book and it's great, but I had never seen the Moon Festival story he did. Thank you for that> All in all, several great reads. You are awesome. I am an avid reader so books are very dear to my heart.

Marsha, Larry & Courtney
