Our sweet baby girl is 11 months old today. It is so bittersweet to think about her getting older and growing. We are so glad that she is getting bigger and healthier, but it is so hard to know that we are missing this early part of her life. To not be there when she smiles, laughs, sits and crawls for the first time. I pray that her wonderful foster family is documenting these first months of her life for us, so we can have some piece of her life before she came to be our daughter. Happy 11 months Eliza! We love you so much.
I have been married to my wonderful husband Ken for 16 years. We are abundantly blessed to have 4 awesome boys, a very busy 3 year old daughter from Korea, and another beautiful daughter (age 6) from India. I am passionate about Jesus, family and adoption.
