Eliana's Gran-D (her great-grandmother) gave her a kitchen for Christmas, and Chris finally had a few hours to put it together!! She is going to be SO EXCITED to see it when she wakes up in the morning. The girl loves to pretend like she's cooking....she will serve us "pretend" food and drink all of the time. This is going to bring HOURS of entertainment. Thanks Gran-D....we love you!!
Well, Eliana had her first visit to the ER for an injury. She hit her head on the edge of the coffee table really, really hard and we had to rush her to the hospital. Everyone loved her there (she literally ran a marathon in the waiting room...nothing stops her energy)! She got staples in her head (which was awful to watch)....and then got a Popsicle and a teddy bear. We are so thankful that she is okay. It was pretty scary!! Pray that she won't be in too much pain tonight and tomorrow.
We have only been married 6 years, but this one thing we know...we want our lives to make a difference for the Kingdom of God in the country of Guatemala. We love so many of this country's precious children, and by the grace of God we were given the incredible gift of adopting one of them! Her name is Eliana Hope Wheeler...and this is her story (along with our journey on the long road called adoption)! The story doesn't end here....God is calling us to more. Thank you for joining with us....for praying for us....and for loving these kids!! We are so grateful for each of you.
