On April 2, 2007 they placed Eliana Joy Lin in our arms. If you know her you know how well she fits with our family. We are on vacation right now and she has enjoyed her 'gotcha day'. We had lunch with a precious friend, my mentor, Jo and we bought the little girls "webkins" in honor of the day. Here are some photos just to travel down memory lane...
This is our Gotcha Day, April 2, 2007...I was one happy momma! It had been quite the journey to get this little one and I was pausing to give the good Lord thanks...
This is Eliana Joy Lin on her 1st birthday...she was home and our girl for good.
This is Ellie just one year after being home...what a difference a year and a family can make.
This is the whole gang in November 2007. It was our Christmas Photo.
This is Ellie's 2nd Birthday photo...all smiles
This is just a week ago...won't she be a lovely flower girl...
This is Ellie on the potty. We have been potty training for a while now. It is so funny that she holds her nose while she poops...I just had to take a picture. She's gonna love this one in her wedding day slide show :)
Here we are on vacation this week. We hiked to see some water falls. The little girls loved it. I will show more vacation photos later.
Ellie and her daddy had some great bonding time this week. I'll tell more about that later, too.
Precious Lord, Thank You for seeing fit to bless us with Eliana Joy Lin. She has added so much to our family and we would certainly not have been complete without her. Glory to Your name for all You have done. We stand amazed. Thank You, thank You, thank You for this little girl! Use her for Your glory all the days of her life. She belongs to You. We love You. amen.
