Secret Pal

When we were adopting Chloe I joined a Yahoo Group with the same DTC date as ours - so of course, I have joined one this time as well - it is great to have people to chat with while you wait. I still keep in touch many with from Chloe's adoption. SO - in our new DTC Group, they have started a Secret Pal gift exchange - we got our first gift - with the theme of BEDTIME!!





We loved both of the gifts - they were so clever but have to say - we were so impressed with the "Double Happiness" night light - it is beautiful!! Chloe wanted it plugged right in!! The bummer - it's a secret pal - I can't even ask where they found it!! Thank you, Secret Pal!

What fun!!!! Remember you are also makeing someone wonder who sent them cool stuff to.
When do you let the others know who you are?

i never thought about joining a dtc group ... how much fun you will have ... i just love gift exchanges ... perhaps we could have the girls draw names at the reunion for the next year.

Gwen - GREAT idea - wouldn't that be fun?!?!? I love surprises like that too.

Mr. Brian - I think we find out in a year - we exchange for a year and then reveal ourselves - it's helping us pass time.

Hey this is a really cool idea. So many different adapatations you could do!! You guys do such fun stuff. Is your secret pal from a different part of the country?

Beckyb said...

Most of the secret pals are from the U.S. - somewhere!!! There are a few from Canada.

I found out this morning that our agency did receive our dossier. I am waiting until they let me know that all is well before I join a DTC group. The secret pal thing looks like so much fun.

Great gifts...I am always kind-of envious when I see all the Secret Pal action going on. (since I didn't even OWN a computer when we were adopting Lily, as you well know).
If we adopt again I am definitely gettin' in on all the fun!
Little _____ will love all her goodies. (have we decided on a name yet?)

Love that night light!!

When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
