One of the things I have loved so much about writing my letters to you is the friends we have met along the way....who have come here to read and comment and share our journey together. Many times the people who comment have blogs themselves, and we've met so many other families of babies or children with Down syndrome this way.
One of our favorite blogging friends is a mama named Elissa and her beautiful baby Abbie . Yesterday a package came in the mail for your birthday~ Elissa made you a beautiful tutu and matching headband and onesie with a darling rhinestone ladybug.
I could not wait to try it on you, and all day I kept bugging your sissy to do a little photo shoot with you wearing your new outfit. (***your new header was designed by sissy as well!**)
Elissa is one of those creative, thoughtful, brilliant mamas who inspires me to be a better person. She also has a heart of gold.
She emailed me...at 3:30 this morning...and guess why I knew that? Because I was up nursing you and praying for Olga and Peter and Kareen. And Elissa was doing the same.
I love how connected we are, although we've never met in person. And I know that when these children are safely home with their families some day..it will be in great part thanks to Elissa...and Stephanie...and Libby...and Lori...and Tekeal...and Lisa...and Barbara ..and a host of other blogging (or non-blogging!) mamas who have been praying and contending and believing for them day after day.
So thankful for our friends, and so thankful for you,
