Let's take a walk down memory lane, shall we...


Documenting our journey of bringing Eli into our family, 2009.

The first picture we saw of our Chala-Eli, Jan 2010.

One of the pictures we got of him while we were waiting to pass court, Spring 2010.

My heart and my eyes fill as I think about the unimaginable blessing it is to mother this sweet little boy.

I love his crazy face making ability,
his gentleness,
his random questions,
his adventurous eating,
his laid back, easy going, and contented nature,
his bravery,
his sweet prayers,
and so so so much more!

Eli Cade,

Happy happy day to you! 

You are so incredibly loved by so many people...but no one (under God) loves you like your Daddy and I. We are so blessed that we get to be your parents. I look at you sometimes and my heart just turns to mush. Your life holds a big story and we love that we get to be a part of it. You are smart and sweet and so very brave. You are a rock star with all your friends at the mission and I love watching your friendships with them. I've said it before, and I'll say it again this year...you are my hero. I love you so very much. 

Happy Birthday!

To the moon and back,

Momma
