She was 7lbs 2oz, and 20 inches long.

Not the same update! I just figured I would share her birthday and such in case anyone missed the last update.

We waited for 8 days to get clearance to leave the state! While we waited, we stayed with my best friend’s grandmother who did quite a bit of missions work, including Haiti! It was so nice connecting with her and talking about things we could all relate to, as well as feel comfortable and “at home” during that week.

After we left, we stopped in Georgia to stay overnight with my sister Kristina! I’m so glad we could connect, even just for a couple hours.

On Wednesday, August 24, THREE WEEKS since I’d seen the kids, we arrived in Daytona where my mom met us with the kids! It was a sweet reunion, and the kids LOVE their new sister!!

We have paid three of our larger bills, and many many smaller ones. I’ve asked our FL attorney how many more fees we can expect to pay and I am waiting on a response.

We just received a bill from the home study agency for $600 that we were not expecting, along with a hospital bill from Indiana that we were not expecting. We had the understanding that we would pay for any medical needs Ellie would have after “placement” and the majority of the items on the bill are pre-placement costs. We’ve contacted the hospital to see if there was some miscommunication or just a mistake. Either way, there is a chance we will still be billed. We should know within 30 days.

Then yesterday happened! We will receive a bill soon for her echo, and we don’t know yet how much that will be.

With unforeseen costs, we’re unsure how much we still need before everything is said and done. If you can help with any of these things we have several giving options below.

We have also created a baby registry on Amazon. If you would like to help us with a few practical items, you can order them and have them sent to us directly, or just send a gift card, and we can order them ourselves. Here is the link for that:
