Wrap Up

I think it is time to wrap up this blog. I always wondered about people who adopted and then never blogged again. I thought things must have gone terribly wrong for them. But for me, I know that once we had our child home, I seldom have time to sit at the computer and blog. This little person fills up every empty space in my life and its a good thing.

Ella is thriving! She is now 16 months old. She is walking, running, and saying lots of words. She is very smart and can follow simple instructions. She loves to play with her baby dolls and is so sweet to them. She also loves to clean house. She fights me for the Swiffer, so for Christmas she got her own little broom and mop. She gets into everything and hides things like the tv remote in "her" drawer in the kitchen. I often find missing toys etc. in that drawer. She gives hugs and kisses. Seeing her little kissy lips and closed eyes moving in for a kiss is truly the cutest thing. We are completely smitten with her and wonder how we could have been so blessed to parent her.

Since I am not planning on blogging anymore (at least not at this spot) I just wanted leave you with a few recent photos of our girl and encourage you to care for orphans.....whatever that means to you. It could be simply praying, giving money , sponsoring, or even adopting.
