You Have Made Us Glow

We have been bowled over by how many of you have visited our site, read Elvie's story, and contributed to help get her home. Two weeks of filling in information on paperwork have left me with little to say, but what I want most to express is how much you have filled up our hearts these past two days. Thank you for coming. Thank you for sharing. Thank you for caring about a tiny baby who is halfway around the world. You have given us more than just funds to help bring our baby home; you have given us hope for her future, that the world is and will continue to be a world full of people with beautiful hearts, ready to share with someone in need. Thank you. Our hearts are smiling. Smiling like this:


Can you see our eyes shining, too? We hope you can, from wherever you are. You have filled us up. You have made us glow.

Huge thanks to Rebecca Woolf, the genius lady behind one of our most favorite blogs, Girls Gone Child, for sharing our story and being all around awesome. These two days have been so full of good love and good surprises. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


  1. Gosh, I didn't stop by the blog for a few days and suddenly baby BBQ is on the way!! CONGRATS! I hope you can meet with her soon, and that she's soon brought to good health.

    I don't know if you're interested - but this is something my parents did when I was born. My older brother was almost 4, and when they brought me home from the hospital, they included a toy truck in my blanket. They said I'd brought that as a gift for him. He was always incredibly loving and attentive of me, but they were careful to break the ice in that way, hoping that there wouldn't be any jealousy between siblings.

  2. so happy. get that baby girl home. I am feeling totally emotionally unstable right now, so I am gearing up for all the crying you and I are gonna do over the next few months.

  3. So happy for you! I run the nonprofit The Small Things (, and we also had a tremendous response when Rebecca Woolf linked to us - it made and has continued to make a huge difference, and got three beautiful kids into school. Thank you Rebecca for using your voice to help others! Can't wait to read the post the day you get your beautiful girl home.
