Happy Father's Day to the best dad in the world!!!

Chris, I am so amazed at the man you are!! Thank you for leading our family, for serving and working so hard for us, and for seeking the Lord in every decision. You have helped me walk through some very dark days. It has been so incredible to watch you with Eliana. You are already that most amazing dad!! Eliana loves you so much. Thank you for trusting the Lord in allowing me to go to Guatemala to be with our baby girl. I am going to miss you so much!!

I love you,

P.S. I love this picture...Eliana is saying "Can you believe he is my dad???!!!!"

I have loved watching your sacrificial, giving, loving heart for my daughter over the past five years. Now I am privileged to watch that same amazing, sacrificial, giving, loving heart for my granddaughter. You are a wonderful man, husband, father and son-in-law!! Have a great day.

You are a wonderful father to help your wife, the mother of this precious girl, go to be with her in Guatemala. Next year!!! I pray that Next Year, you will have her home, and in your arms on this special day to honor our earthly fathers.

Happy Father's Day Chris! I know Eliana is so blessed to call you daddy. Can't wait until she is home where she belongs! I just know it won't be too long.

I think Eliana is saying "Can you believe we have the same hair?"! :) Like I always say, your both amazing people and I so hope our paths cross someday. Knowing our God, they will. Happy Fathers Day Chris, Susie

You and Eliana certainly are blessed to have such a great husband and father - one that lets his Father lead him, as he leads your family.

Peace and Hugs,

Chris and Lindsey,

Awwwwwww!! How precious! I was going to say the same thing about the hair! Too cute! I'm so thrilled for y'all that Eliana's mommy is on a mission! A DIVINE mission at that! You go, girl! I can't wait to see your blog once you're there with your baby girl! Our prayers are focused on a BIG, more-than-capable GOD showing up BIG there to tear down the obstacles that stand in the way of Eliana coming home! Your faith is inspiring! Your story is touching! Adoption is miraculous! We're staying tuned....

Love y'all!
Rhonda and Phillip
