Lexi's last care package

I sent Lexi's last care package last week. It included a camera, letter, candies for the foster family, hair clips, and I sent some extra money for Ann to buy something for the foster family. This was in Ann's email to me:

I got one bag of Man Pian for the foster family ,Man Pian is something here ,they will be very honored to get this ...Man Pian is good and very healthy as for breakfast and it is very popular here ,but most families won`t buy them,because they think that is too expensive.

It looks like ground up oatmeal or something. We will have to try it while we are there. I had a hard time writing the letter to the foster family this time. There is really no way to convey how much you appreciate them. This family took in Lexi as a newborn and loved her as one of their own and now has to let her go. I just wish that we could meet them and try to express how we feel. Hopefully they will know how much they are appreciated.

We are still waiting on our TA and hoping that Joanne gets her LOA soon! Hopefully we will know in a few weeks when we will be traveling!!
