WADSWORTH, Ill. - A present from Sasha and Malia Obama ended up at a suburban Chicago woman's home by mistake.
Alane Church of Wadsworth, Ill., was expecting a Christmas package, but it was delayed because of damages.
When it finally arrived Wednesday morning, there was a second package inside that wasn't hers.
It was already opened, and the return address showed it came from Sasha and Malia Obama. The package contained a photo book with pictures of the First Family in it.
Church said she has contacted the person the Obama package was meant for, Sasha and Malia's godmother.
"I really care about photographs and books and all that stuff, so I thought, 'She's going to really be missing not having this.' And I verified her address, and we want to get it to her ASAP," said Church.
She said she planned to put it in the mail Thursday.
