You have been matched with a child from Korea! How exciting…but now what? It’s never too soon to start making a connection with your child before you travel for the first time to meet him. Care packages are a popular and effective way to begin a relationship with your child. Here are a few tips on what to include in the package.

  • Letter to the foster mother
    Thank the foster mother for taking such good care of your child and tell her a bit about your family such as your home, extended family, pets, hobbies, etc.
  • Gift for the foster family
    It does not have to be a large, expensive gift but smaller items such as vitamins, body lotions, candies, scarves.
  • Photo Album for your child
    Include shots of your home, family, pets, etc.
  • A USB drive with a video of your family
    The foster family can also take photos and videos and send them to you. Or a link to an unlisted YouTube video of your family.
  • Small stuffed animal
    this can be a soft toy that your child can cuddle with and remember it is from you while they wait for the first meeting.
  • Clothing
    A few cute outfits for your child. Based on recent reports you can calculate the right size.
