Happy 2nd Adoption Day, Eli ...
Wow, has it really been 2 years since we were in the orphanage in DaNang picking up one very scared little boy? It doesn't seem like it was that long ago and yet it is so hard to even remember what it was like before Eli joined our family. It is amazing to watch him grow and learn more every day. He is not even 3 years old but some times he acts so much older and seems to know more than what a 3 year old should know. He has a heart for music and will tap out a beat on anything that he can get his hands (or feet) on. There is always a song on his lips, even at hours of the morning that the rest of us would much rather be sleeping, and most of the time the songs that he's singing are songs of praise to Jesus. Eli, we are so happy that you joined our family and can't wait to see the path that God takes you on as you grow and mature in Him. We love you.
