celebrating judah!

Judah's 1st birthday is Oct 2! Oh, how we hate to miss this very special milestone! He should receive the care package (pictured above) by the end of the week!! He will see our faces for the very first time ever!!
The package is already in China, and you can see that the letter we sent to him has already been translated into Chinese. A nanny will read it to him very soon. It makes my heart ache to imagine the confusion that his little mind may experience when he sees our photos, and hears our letter to him...that we are his family, and we're coming to get him.
We've also ordered a birthday cake, that will be delivered to the orphanage, so the staff and children can celebrate his special day with him! Of course, our family will have a party for him, too -- on this side of the globe!

I'm so glad you are able to send him a package and a cake, that is so great. He will love it!
You are amazing parents and he is so blessed to have you. We can't wait to hear about seeing his little face in person for the first time.

Blessings,

祝你身日快乐(Happy Birthday to you) Judah! Alisa, does he have a Chinese name (characters) yet? The English name Judah can be written and prounounced the same in Chinese as Zhude. There are of course many many characters that would be written Zhude(Judah). If he doesn't have Chinese characters yet I'll look them up and send them to you. If he does, send them to me so I can look up his name's meaning. Love and miss you all.
