Birthday part two

Yesterday was Eli's birthday!  I felt so many different emtions.  Happiness that one of my children was having a birthday, overwhelming sadness that we aren't with him to celebrate the day of his birth.  Hoping that someone in his orphanage remembered it was his birthday and gave him a kiss, but Mama sent him about a million across the ocean anyway. 

Happy Birthday Lovie, we love you so much and are working so hard to get to you.  Hang on tight!  We made cupcakes for you and next year we will make cupcakes WITH you!

    1. Thanks for the sweet comment andrea! I am feeling such a longing for Eli to be here tonight. I think it is because his birthday just passed and he isn't here.

  2. I thought RR website said his birthday was March 3. I'm still so happy he has your family even though my sister didn't get to him in time.

    1. Larisa, has your sister seen this little one? She really needs a mama (she recently lost the family who was going to come get her). She is soooo adorable!
