Happy Birthday, Sweet Bea!

Sometime this month, little Beatrice turns 2! We will be celebrating for her all month :)

Once we are in her country to get her, we will get to find out all those amazing little details. Until then, she gets to have the whole month. 
This is the last birthday she will ever have alone, in an orphanage. For the rest of her life, she will be surrounded by loving family and friends that will celebrate her- like she deserves. 
I am not sure what I think about horoscopes sometimes, but it is pretty neat that she and I will share a birth month: both Capricorns, both have the garnet as our birthstone.

You may have noticed that our fundraising has not started yet. Soon enough. We will be brainstorming ideas, so if anyone has a great idea, please let us know!
I think once we have our dossier mailed, maybe then we will start. Hopefully the end of this month or early Feb.

To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken.

  1. Happy Birthday to Beatrice! Thinking of you guys and your journey.

  2. Happy Birthday to sweet Beatrice! How wonderful to think that her next birthday will be with you guys! And that is one of my favorite quotes- I used it frequently to combat the question: "What if you guys get hurt/burned during the process?"
