Starfish Foster Home

Starfish Foster Home is a foster home in Xi'an devoted to caring for a few of the many special-needs children in China. A cyber-friend recently volunteered in this home, and a few more cyber-buddies and I decided to make a donation to Amanda and the staff here. Below are the times that we collected to send to China:



Photo 1: Medicines - Gripe Water (to help with stomach irritations), Mucinex, Motrin, teething tablets


Photo 2: Nursing Needs - Playtex bottle, liners, and nipples


Photo 3: Clothing - sleepers


Photo 4: Clothing - winter daywear

Photo 7: Clothing - summer outfits, pajamas


Photo 8: Sleepers, medicines

I will be FedEx'ing the box tomorrow, it should take about a week to get there!
