She is so precious. That's how I felt about Jake too. The minute his face popped up on the screen, I just knew! I bet you are getting so excited for your trip!

I'll never forget the first time I saw Mauricio's picture. At the time we weren't even considering a boy. I looked at that face, and knew I had a son.

She is getting so big. She needs to come home!!

Peace and Hugs,

I CAN'T WAIT to see pictures!!!!!

We framed the picture they gave us at our agency when we first saw Jadon. The frame is dated with his referral date. It is so special now!

I am so glad you are able to create so many memories with Eliana!

She is so precious and someday soon she will call you Mommy & Daddy!!!

She is gorgeous! I've been praying for you down here in Florida.

We're waiting to adopt from Kaz and I think no matter where you adopt from it is never easy to wait. International adoption is so full of uncertainties, precarious upon multiple governments and other things you have no control over.

I know this has been very difficult on families waiting to adopt from Guatamala with the unsurities of the program and where families are in the process. My heart goes out to them.

I hope things go smoothly for you. You are so full of faith that you are an inspiration. And fun too - your LOST kick off party. (Love Lost).

Cant wait to see you with the little one in a few days! Be safe.

Anyway we have a blog too - its private but I'd send you an invite if you're interested. ruley@tampabay.rr.com

Awww...she is just too cute but she needs to stop growing up without you! I am so worried that Elvia/Auri is going to be this all grown up independant gal (yes at the age of 20 mo) when we see her FRIDAY!!! I will try and call you later this week so we can chat and maybe try and figure out when we can meet up! I think I saw on your blog that Flor and Fern's families were going down at the same time....I thought they were staying at the Grand Tikal...or is it somewhere else? I little playdate would be awesome!

Love,Deanna
