I have been dreaming about Ellie very often lately. Most of the time the dreams take place in Colombia and I feel the excitement of getting to meet her and hold her. I never see her face in my dreams, but I did feel her weight in my arms. When I was pregnant with Easton I could feel him kick and wiggle, since I can’t fell Ellie inside me, feeling her in my dreams is the next best thing. I long to hold my baby girl and my little boy together. Easton is saying “Mommy two babies. Ellie and Baby” He refers to himself as “Baby” so he is starting to understand that we are going to have two babies in the house. He asks about Ellie multiple times a day and asks if she’s “night night?” He makes my heart happy. He is going to be the best big brother.
We got our home study back and we have been approved! Woo Hoo! So, now everything has to go to Austin to be authenticated and then we can send everything to Colombia. We have also been working on our family book, it is pretty impressive, if I do say so myself!
Next week we have a fundraiser dinner at Joe Willy’s in Rockwall. If you live in the Dallas area, please come out to Joe Willy’s and have a delicious dinner and help us bring Ellie home. We will also have a bunch of great silent auction items there too. I am so excited!
We have made some really cute cards that have our blog address on them and some cute pictures. We made them to give to people so they can follow our journey and can keep us in their thoughts and prayers. If you would like one, let me know, I will drop one in the mail for you.
Also, if you haven’t ordered your Ellie shirt yet, please order one HERE. We are doing a collage on the wall in Ellie’s room with individual pictures of people wearing their shirts. We want your picture on the wall too! Only 3 more days left to order, don’t miss out!
We appreciate all of the support, encouragement and love on this journey.
