China and Booties Update...
April is still waiting for Our "Penny" from China... It seems that China has delayed the adoptions and we are not expecting Penny untill 2009..
April got word that it is very Cold in China now and the babies could use those booties to keep warm... So April got them all packed and bought a bunch of Baby Hats .. Some Tylenol infant drops, tylenol flu medicine and some vick rub and added them to the Package... It was $63.00 to mail it to China but she wanted the Babies to have now and not to wait until she can go there...
She mailed them all to the Orphanage that she thought was the coldest and needed them the most..... We hope this makes the babies a litttle more comfortable .. I'm certain they will feel all the love you ladies put into making all those booties... I think April said there were about 130 of them...
Thank You All and Lets Pray that "Penny" gets here as soon as possible!!!

That is so sweet! Those babies are going to have toasty toes! ;-)

It was nice to knit for them too, imagining those poor little things waiting for loving parents.

I hope you will be able to welcome little Penny real soon.

All the cute little chinese things you made for her are going to be too small, won't they?

Sorry about the delay =( Penny is going to be grown up by the time she's adopted! I don't get it.

I'm very proud of your booties and socks endeavor, though. Keep up the good work.

I'll be glad when we finally get to 'meet' Penny.

Oh, Penny I could just cry when I think of that little Penny over there cold and alone. It's a crime, when she has a loving and warm family waiting for her here. Well you will all definitely be in my prayers. And do let us all know if you decide to do another bootie blitz to send over.
