A China Surprise

After a long day at work, I came home to a little package in the mail.  Can you guess what was in it?

It was a little outfit from China from my friend Christy.  I've mentioned her on the blog before.  I met Christy in 8th grade when her family was here on furlough from their mission field in the Philippines.  Our friendship grew fast and furious and when she left, I thought I would never stop crying.  We managed to keep in touch the rest of the time they lived overseas.  After a while, her parents moved back to the US and we somehow lost touch.  And through nothing short of a miracle of God (that is another post entirely), I caught up to her dad and then to her.  We've been in touch ever since.

In fact, her oldest daughter was born not too long before Jenna.  Christy has always been a wonderful support even though she lives all the way in Arizona!

The story of the outfit was that her sweet parents bought this outfit for her kids when they were visiting China and now she was handing it down to us for our little girl.  I can't think of a sweeter, more thoughtful gift!  It's our very first outfit for our girl and I cannot wait to get her in it!

So, THANKS CHRISTY!  We love it and we can't wait to get pictures of our girl in it!  A very special gift to us indeed!
