We received a letter today and were asked to send duct tape, super glue, and packaging tape. The rest of the requests were understandable...shampoo, writing materials, etc. I mailed right away, but would like to know what they are used for? Any ideas? Overall the letter seemed pretty good. Concern over how much harder it was going to get and missing family, but said overall enjoying being there. Thanked us for helping her get there.
