A snowsuit, a snowsuit, my kingdom for a snowsuit
Wednesday, September 26, 2007
After reading about a great idea proposed by someone who goes by the username Dannyssong on the FRUA forums, I created a yahoo group where adopting parents could share snowsuits. For folks who live in Minnesota the snowsuits parents are required to get to bring home their little ones from Russia might have further uses. But for us here in sunny California (actually Northern California isn't really that sunny, that whole Beach Boys thing is in Southern California) the snowsuit is truly a one time use item.

So I started a yahoo group where people could share (not sell, just share) snowsuits and other one time use items. It's working out pretty well with all sorts of items that people are donating (the only cost being that the people getting the stuff need to pay for shipping). So far there are snowsuits, sweaters, Russian language tapes, all sorts of things.

Anyway, the main writer for the Russian section of Adoptionblogs.com contacted me saying she wanted to do an article about the site. And she wrote up a very nice article about it. Which you can read here.

If you'd like to join the yahoo group just click on the Snowsuit Swap picture on the right.

    That's so exciting!! We're Floridans and members of the group- we don't do snow suits down here either! And in the chance that we travel in the colder weather seasons, I'm thankful for one less "huge expense" in this process!
