Just a quick post!
Sorry for not keeping up - we still have not heard much of anything.
I'm real good at it.
We celebrated Miss Ellie Grace's 2nd birthday on Friday with a few little friends in jammies!

Okay, so don't look to closely at the cake - I ran out of frosting.
Kinda weird celebrating your daughters birthday while she's still in China. We're here, she's over there.........we.want.her.home!!
I know Lord, soon.

Then, a sweet wonderful surprise; Rachelle sent these for our Ellie (she has a Ellie Grace too!)

Thank you so much my dear friend !
My kids have already started watching them, and are practicing their sign language.
Very cool !
Have a great week guys, keep praying for us!!!!
Blessings ~ xoxo

This is the sweetest thing in the world to do for Miss Ellie. A jammie party and these kids look totally into it.:) Your cake is precious just like your heart is in waiting patiently**@@!! for news to go get her. Signing is such a great way to get started communicating with her. And I'll bet the kids will pick it up so quick!! Just got back from seeing my baby Hannah and I have to tell you, she is beautiful and so pink and so soft, like a cloud. I am in love all over again. Praying for you to bring your girl home SOON, before your heart pops!!:) Many ((HUGS)) to you too.

Love you, Laurie in Ca.

Happy Birthday Ellie Grace!

I remember celebrating Faith's B-day w/out her here too. Trust me, these moments will pass by quickly & before you know it you'll be in CHINA! You don't see it now, but next year you'll think "Wow, SHE'S HERE!"

Blessings to you!

Too funny! Just wait, after 10 times a day, you'll be humming it in your sleep.

Signing is a great idea. We do some with Mia. It has helped.
