Metott's wonderful secret pal-Julie & Scott Sosnowski

Thank you so very much Julie and Scott for being the most wonderful secret pals! We have truly loved everything you picked out for us and it has made this wait bearable getting a special gift every month. I would love to continue but with our little girl coming home (hopefully) any day now, I dont feel I can keep up with this swap. You have been wonderful to us and it was so nice of you to always include my boys in your gifts (was not necessary, but very much appreciated). I did not post what you sent to the boys in this months picture because they had already opened the gift and are playing with them. They absolutely love Thomas right now and are actually having a 'Thomas' birthday party this weekend. The outfit and bibs are so cute and we cant wait to see Miah playing with the toy. You didnt have to include the 'coming home' and 'state' secret pal gifts but they are also greatly appreciated and we loved the Illinois book (maybe we will have to visit there someday) and Chicago playing cards. My favorite has to be the ladybug necklace. It is beautiful and I will treasure it always. Im going to put one of the most recent pictures of Miah in the frame and look at it every minute I can until she comes home. Once again I have LOVED being your secret pal and you sent the most perfect gifts. Yours have been the first gifts we have gotten for Miah and I will treasure them always. I plan to print all of the pictures we have taken with each months gifts and keep them with the cards you sent so that one day she will be able to see how much others cared about her and her family while we waited for her. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.

Pina Secret Pal

I know I posted on the loop, but I wanted to post a pic of October and November's combined presents from my secret pal. My computer wasn't letting me upload pics for the longest time, and I finally had a computer person come into my house and fix my computer!Yeah! Now everyone can see the great presents I got for those two months. My secret pal is the best! You are so appreciated and after a crappy two months, any kind of surprise is sooo appreciated. Thanks for always making my day!

To the McMillan Family

Dear McMillan Family,
It was bittersweet to open your box this afternoon. Happy because I have so enjoyed all the thoughtfulness and love that has gone into each package, including this one. Each box has been packed to the brim with thoughtful things for our precious baby and for us. We always felt like we were opening a treasure chest filled with surprises as we pulled one thing after another out of each box. Sad because I have felt that we had a heart-connection, instead of just a mere pairing of names. Each month, I felt like you knew us; and sometimes it seemed a little strange, but we sensed it was that in our hearts, we were the same. And as your identity was revealed, and I had a chance to look at your website, I understand now why our hearts were so well matched.
We would like to thank you for all our gifts, and our time on this journey together. I pray that we will meet one day - hopefully in China in 2007. Your LID is only 3 days behind ours, so there is a good possibility we will be in China at the same time. We can add that to our prayer list.
Thank you for all you have done for us, and I hope that our Mary Rose will remain in your prayers as your Leilani will be in ours.

In Him,
Brenda & Jose Perez

Thank You from the Korber Family!!!

A Million Thanks

We want to thank our super Secret Pal yet again for an amazing gift this month! You are so sweet and thoughtful each and every month with the gifts that you send us. This month's goodies included an adorable Elmo and Cookie Monster 2 in 1 Giggle Phone. My husband won't stop playing with it! He's totally addicted to it! LOL!! Also we received a very cool Nursery Rhymes CD Player. It is so cute! Our son will have lots of fun with that!!! And the last item was very thoughful. My Secret Pal sent a Snoopy Santa, too! It plays "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" when you squeeze its foot. I love it! I pushed it and my dog started howling along with it, like she was singing along! It was hysterical.

Thanks for you generosity! We thank you so very much!!!

Thank You Pie' Family Secret Pal!!

Hi Secret Pal,
Thank you so much for your wonderful gifts. You have been so great to us and I can't wait to find out who you are next month!! I love the outfit you sent for Torie (and thought you would like a picture of her in the outfit). She loves the headband and keeps trying to take it off and put it back on again (while laughing hysterically!). The teddy bear and blanket are so cuddly and soft and Torie loves them. The boys can't get enough of the books and trucks you sent for them. We have read the books so many times already!! and they have been sleeping with the cars at night. Of course, Corey and I enjoyed the chocolates very much!!!! Thank you so much secret pal, you are awesome!!
