Happy 5 Months Old Eliana!!




Eliana,

All day today I have missed you so much! Happy 5 month birthday baby girl!! I wish I could be there to kiss and hug you non-stop....and to celebrate you. Know that I am praying and missing you like crazy. I am praying that I can hold you and sing to you soon. I love you. I love you. I love you. You are the most beautiful creation! I love your eyes....they sparkle. I love your smile....it is contagious! I love your personality....I can't wait to watch you grow up. Know that your mommy and daddy are so proud of you. We love you with all of our hearts!!

Love,
Your momma

Lindsey,
She is breathtakingly beautiful!
I feel your pain though! I know it's hard, but we do have to continue to love even when it hurts. I believe one day it will be worth it and we will look back, amazed at what we walked through to get our children home. I can see that you are leaning on God for your strength, that is the only way! I can see it because your words give me comfort too. Thanks for sharing your heart.

Thanks for your comment on my blog. I look forward to meeting you at church sometime soon hopefully.

I watched the video at the Elliedub site and it made me cry. It is so neat to see how the Lord works in people's lives. I am praying for you that you get your little girl home soon! I also added the elliedub button to my site.

So excited for you and your adoption journey! Eliana is beautiful and we'll be praying that she will join your family soon! We just received our China referral....I know exactly how you guys feel ;)

We can identify with you. The waiting is the worst, and especially when you know there's nothing you can do to speed up the process yourself. I can still remember thinking we were getting the call to say we could go get our boy, only to find out the US embassy in Guatemala City had lost our paperwork! That's when there was something we could do: call our congressman. But the happy end of the story is that little Joshua (and he is a little guy still) has been home with us now for a little over a year. We'll be praying for you. Enjoy a few pics from our 2 visits: http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=guatemala&w=65562913%40N00

Thanks for commenting on my blog! So good to meet another family adopting from Guatemala, and who loves the Lord! Thanks for the links. I will start praying for your family too. Any idea on a time line of when you'll bring Eliana home?
