On its way....

I created a photobook album using Shutterfly for Ricky's 1st year with us.

I finally got around to sending 2 books to his orphanage in Fuling. One is for the orphanage and one is for his foster parents. I have no idea if his foster parents will get the book. I have heard that it is unlikely as the orphanage doesn't like for us to connect with the foster parents. But I have to try. I have to tell Ricky I tried. On the back of the book, I put our address and name. Right now the books are in China on their way to the orphanage.

There are not many pieces of the Ricky's early life I can put together for him.

We have 7 photos of him - 1 finding ad when he was 4 months old, 3 original referral pictures, 2 update pictures, and one picture I found on the Fuling parent website when he was recoverying from lip surgery. Thats it in 17 months time.

Only time will tell if this works. I want his foster parents to know that he is happy and well cared for.
