We are extremely excited and thrilled to announce our baby girl has finally arrived! Born on July 4th, our little firecracker Eliana made her debut weighing 7lbs 10 oz and healthy as can be. We are so thankful to have been a part of her birth and for getting the chance to experience her arrival. We are loving absolutely every moment with her. She is such a sweet baby girl! She is eating and sleeping like a champ right now and making great strides already. We were so blessed to have a healthy baby girl and for the smooth delivery for her birth mom who is recovering well. We are so excited for the time we are spending together as a family of 3 while we await our approval to fly back home. Until then, we continue enjoying our days of snuggling and adoring sweet Eliana. Thank you to all who have contributed this far to help us bring Eliana home with us! We are so thankful for all the progress we have made towards reaching our needed goal. For those who have been considering partnering with us but have yet to do so, please help us raise the last amount needed to finalize our adoption and legally make Eliana a member of our family. We are so in love with her and so thankful for his experience and journey.
Hello Everyone! We thought we would update everyone on how things are going with our adoption. Things are continuing to move forward at this time. We had our big dinner & auction fundraiser last Friday. It was a HUGE success!!! We are now 2/3 of the way to meeting our goal. A big THANK YOU to all those who helped with organizing the event, the local business donors etc who made the auction possible, the kitchen crew and all of you who were able to show up and show your support. Jack & I feel so loved and blessed by each and everyone of you. Thank you for your continued prayers and for sharing this opportunity with those in your sphere.
Baby Eliana is due in less than 4 weeks so we are still working hard to gather addtional funds to reach our goal by her birth date. If you have been thinking about donating and haven't had a chance yet, it's never too soon! We are so excited to hold Eliana in our arms and to meet her!!! The days are quickly counting down and we can't wait!!! So excited to see her! Again, thank you for your continued support and prayers! We appreciate each and every one of you!
With busy days blowing past us, it's so hard to believe it is only 5 weeks away from meeting our baby girl Eliana Faith. Yes, we have decided on a name and thought we would share it with you all. Eliana meaning "Our God has answered" and Faith meaning confident, true belief and faith in Him. We thought it was not only very beautiful but the meaning was so appropriate for the journey we are on, not only the past 12 years it has taken us to get here but also the journey these last 5 weeks and remaining 5 weeks until we can hold sweet Eliana in our arms.
We are so blessed and blown away by the overflowing support, love, donations, prayers, encouragement and sacrifices others have made to help us along the way to making this happen. We are so humbled and thankful for each and every one of you and especially God for we know it is his plan for us and we are so happy you are all a part of this.
Thank you again for sharing this journey with us. We can't wait to introduce you all to Eliana and for her to experience the love, joy and hope that you all have shown to us.
