|This is the ribbon we, as a group|
chose to identify ourselves
|The site where every and all my good|
info comes from. Lots of BTDT moms
some going back for the 4th and 5th times.
|A little "happy" for Asa, a 2 1//2 yr old|
son of a new friend who will come home from
Elli's orphanage in February.
|Add to her clothes, gift bags for all the gifts|
that we give to all the people that have
in any way aided in our adoption process
|Of course she has a "Bama" shirt... the National Championships|
will be played while we are over there... at 8:30 in the morning! :)
|Rx and OTC... now to break them all down|
into suitcase ready samples.
There's also the trip to the bank to get the money we need in brand new crisp bills. Yes, they need to be new and crisp without writing or creases... this is a big deal. We want to make sure they take our money.
|One of many that will be taken to|
alleviate the pain and boredom
of hours and hours and hours on a
plane or in an airport.
|The little blue present is Elli's|
from Aunt Sandy. Can't wait
til she opens it.
|We have to have this little guy|
taken care of for two weeks.
So, I will push on toward a goal that I am completely unfamiliar with; except for one thing, there is a little girl who needs a mama to love her unconditionally and forever and THAT is something I am very familiar with. Please pray for us as we venture forth into unknown wilderness excited to see what God has for us but hesitant in a way because of the unknowns. Trust and Obey, there is no other way... so, so true...
Amazing Love, Amazing Grace... He's all we need and He will give us all that we need to be the mama and papa and sister and brothers that Elli Hope needs. Here we come sweetheart... it won't be long now.
Here are some fun things that Elli will see when she gets home:
|Kate made Elli her own|
mosaic "E" hanging above
|I thought she was too cute|
to pass up.
|He knew the plans he had for her and for us|
long before we had any idea.
|"Hope" in Chinese.|
This is something she
|Drew took this picture when Kate was|
3, she is in the bottom corner, It's hanging
just above her bed.
|I have a feeling she will|
put her jewelry hanger to
|I made this for her bows.|
It appears she will have
quite a lot to choose from
|Kate is graciously sharing EVERYTHING.|
Her favorites are Sock Monkeys.
|A gift from a dear friend.|
|This sweet picture was taken|
by a friend from college
when I was pregnant with Drew
over 20 years ago. I have put it
in every child's room ever since.
|Waiting patiently for|
|She has no idea...|
