Before we started this journey I had been told that the dossier process was stressful, overwhelming and a ton of paper work….I had no idea it would be this crazy. I feel like I have gone a million miles an hour every day for the past two weeks. This week (since Monday) we completed 10 hours of training courses with tests, got our FBI fingerprinting done, filled out countless papers, took pictures of the exterior of our home and sent and received 100s of emails.
This is a much different journey than being pregnant was. When we were expecting Easton, we got ultrasounds, check ups, my belly grew and we felt him moving around. I am trying to make this journey as special, although different than the first one. When I get stressed out I try to close my eyes and picture the moment when I see my baby girl for the first time, when I get to hold her in my arms for the first time. In that moment all this stress will fade away, much like those sleepless nights did with Easton.
On a more exciting note, today we launched our T-Shirt fundraiser! We receive a portion of each of the shirts sold. It will run for 21 days, so if you like t-shirts buy one from us! Click here to check them out. We will be having more fundraisers and if you want to help out with them it would be fun to have a cute shirt to wear!
Thank you each so much for being along with us on this journey to bring our Ellie home.
