Happy 10th Birthday Eli!

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear Eli, Happy Birthday to you...

I am trying to imagine him celebrating his birthday and eating cake with his friends... (sniff, sniff) We sent him a cake to celebrate (Thanks Ladybugs 'N Love) and I can't wait to get pics back.

But mostly I'm just praying he has a good day and make memories he will cherish forever, and yet also be happy & hopeful that this is his last birthday he will celebrate without his very own forever family.

In celebration of his Birthday, please watch the short 2 min video of him on the left side. It is the video that made us fall in love with him. :)
And if you want to help us celebrate & you'd like to send Eli birthday wishes, please leave comments. We plan to print them all out for him when he comes home. Also if you'd like to make a donation towards his adoption, as a birthday gift, please use Chip-In button to right, or Paypal to But whatever you do, please at least say a special prayer for Eli as he celebrates his 10th birthday.
