And then

We passed out
due to gratitude…
Oh my goodness.

Well, Finley is celebrating, we are passing out of gratitude…

Thank you….

We really, really, really mean it.  Thank you.  Thank you!!

Thank you for being so generous and blessing our socks off.  Thank you for helping us reach our kiddos and bringing them home.  Thank you for helping us get our baby out of a crib, and for helping us bring our girl out of an institution.

I don’t even feel like I have the right words to thank you, but just know, we really are so….

Amazed.

Blessed.

Happy.

Joyful!!

Thankful!

******************************

I was thinking, I should open up this post to a FAQ time.  If you are a reader, long time, or just one day, and have any questions about us, or about the adoption, or about anything ‘T.G.E.’, feel free to ask in the comments section, then I’ll try and compile them together in a post this week!  Don’t be shy, we love new friends!

Well, goodbye for now!

Thanks you to an amazing donor who is changing lives.

If you have a question, feel free to ask away!

    If it’s not too personal (I ask because I would like to adopt one day), what are you planning to do about your daughter’s education? I assume there is a language barrier to public/ private school. ELL classes in public school? Homeschool? If so, would you just concentrate on language, or try to maintain in all the other subjects too?

    I’ve been meaning to ask this one for a while. How did the Tiny Green Elephants blog get its name?

    How did you “choose” your daughter? My husband and I have been hoping to adopt a waiting child for a while now, but every time we log into those photo listing websites…we become so overwhelmed! It’s been so hard to decide on just one child when there are soon many beautiful ones waiting. How long ago did you start saving for adoption prior to starting the process/committing to your daughter and son?

    How are you so amazing? Okay, you don’t have to answer that one. I already know the answer. =) You seek the Lord in all you do, that’s how. Love you!

    How did you know Elijah was your son? I’m assuming there where many other babies around and would just like to hear about how God directed you to him.

    How can we help donate to your adoption? Is there a PayPal or link somewhere where we can donate online?

  • superfan519 August 7, 2012, 5:56 am

    Is Elijah special needs too?

    How’s room decorating going?

    How’s Maya’s English classes coming along?

    Ah! So many questions! But you two are awesome!

  • superfan519 August 7, 2012, 6:48 am

    Oh! And how do you pronounce Hawea?

    How much have you talked to Finley about his new siblings? Do you think he understands it at all, and what do you think will be the biggest adjustment for him?

  • Kimberly August 8, 2012, 1:56 am

    I love all the other posters questions 🙂 I pray for you and can’t wait to continue to follow your journey!

    Are you going to change your daughter’s name? How do you think she’ll transition into the role of a big sister? Does she have a varied diet now or do you think that you are going to introduce her to a lot of new foods/dishes?

    I found your blog on Reece’s Rainbow and have been enjoying your posts 🙂 I hope that you get your travel date soon!

  • espnjenn August 8, 2012, 5:22 pm

    Does Maya have special needs? Will your next trip be the trip to pick them up? How long do you have to stay in country on your next trip? Was it a big shock meeting Maya after only having pictures? How recent were the pictures of her you had before meeting her?

    Thank you for sharing your journey! I am pretty much addicted to your blog and love sharing your experience with my husband…hopefully prepping him for the day we will start our adoption adventure.

    Do you and your husband both work? I remember being overwhelmed with just our one daughter when my husband and I were both working. I can’t imagine it with three children, especially when two of them are brand new. My hat’s off to you two!
