Mail Exchange.....Building Friendships!

 A big shout out to Cindy from Eaten Alive who organized a mail exchange for our kids.  The best part is that not only kids with Type 1 were included; Their non-D siblings were included too.  Both my girls were really excited about getting involved and communicating with another child their age who might live in a different state or even a different country.  Very exciting!!  Queen Alopecia was matched up with Bridget, Reyna's daughter from Beta Buddies!!  How cool was this?....I read Reyna's blog all the time and now our daughters are penpals and are in the process of building a great friendship.  Very Cool!!  Queen Alopecia was so excited about her package and couldn't wait to open it.  Below are pictures of Queen Alopecia the day Bridget's package arrived...

Queen Alopecia thought that the box was very pretty and she refuses to get rid of it because it's just too pretty to throw away!

Queen Alopecia thought it was too funny that the gift was wrapped inside!

Queen Alopecia reading every word that Bridget had to say and thought it was cool that Bridget just moved into a new house.  We also will be moving into a new house soon. Bridget told us that her brother Joe has Diabetes and that if she wanted to learn more about it, she could look it up!  Queen Alopecia said, "I know all about Diabetes!"  Another thing they have in common! Then the question of all questions....Hey mom, can we get a 55 inch TV like Bridget's family?  Daddy thinks that it's a great idea!

Queen Alopecia...."How did Bridget know that I love this stuff"?
Thank you Bridget! I hope you get my letter soon and I hope you like your gift!
Write me back soon!

  2. This was so much fun! I love my D Fams :)

  3. Oh Ronda! What a great post. I cannot wait for Bridget to wake up this morning so that I can show her. She worked on finding her Animal Crossing Code for 40 minutes last night...she and Dave finally found it. She has already written Q.A. back and she is so excited about her new friend.

  4. What a great idea!!

    and I love the smiles that kids can light up a room :)

  5. Yay! I LOVE seeing the mail-exchange results! And you can't imagine how happy it makes me that QA and Bridget are becoming fast friends!
