Do you remember the post I did HERE as an update to our fundraising? In that post I mentioned that my friends, Jana and Candi hosted a 31 Party to raise money for our adoption. Well, I was so excited when I saw what else they did for Esther. Instead of ordering gifts for themselves as their "hostess gifts", they gave them to Esther. She has a pretty nice little wardrobe so far, a few headbands, a pair of shoes and now she has THESE......
These are her first monogramed items. A hooded towel and back pack with her name on them, and a tote with the letter "E". This little back pack will be making a trip to Ethiopia soon.
Candy and Jana... thank you both so much!
When I pulled these out of the bag, the tears started rolling. I just want to cling to anything that makes me feel closer to our little girl. I can picture her little dark skin wrapped up in this towel. We still have quiet a wait ahead of us, but we find peace in knowing that everyday, we are one day closer to Esther.
Stay tuned for beach pictures coming soon!
