Getting Eli ...
On July 30th at 9:30 in the morning, we took Eli Thanh into our arms forever. It was a bitter sweet experience because we could tell he was truly loved by all his caregivers. We really felt bad for him; it must have been so traumatic. On the up side, we were so excited to finally have Eli join our family, six full months after seeing his picture for the first time. We hope you enjoy these two pages of pictures from our trip to the orphanage.
