Eliana is HOME!

Eliana helping Linds open her presents.
Eliana enjoying the toys with other kids at the party.
Stella taking it all in with Annie. I was amazed. There were a lot of women and it was loud, but Stella just sat with Annie and watched the crowds come and go.
Stella and Eliana are friends just like their mommies.
Brooke and her youngest, Will. It was so great to see everyone!
We did it!
Tom and I ventured out of town with Stella for the first time. Our dear friends, Chris and Lindsey Wheeler, adopted a precious little girl from Guatemala and there was a shower for her in Little Rock Sunday. So we packed up the car and braved the road with a 3 week old. Stella did GREAT. She slept the entire way there..we were there for two hours tops...then back in the car and she slept the whole way back. It was great to see some faces I haven't seen in forever. I know there are several friends we would love to have seen, but it was a quick trip and our goal was to meet Eliana.
Welcome Home are beautiful and we can't wait to see you again.
