If you've been a faithful reader of our blog, you're aware of our dear friends still in Guatemala. Well, if you'd lost contact with Sharon's blog when she moved it, you may not know that SHE IS COMING HOME! I get emotional every time I think of it!! Bella will be home in just a few short weeks, close to mid-November! Can you believe it? I know I can't still, I can't imagine how Sharon must feel! She will have been there over 15 months. That's insane.
Anyway, to honor how faithful the Lord was in this time, I'm throwing a "toddler shower" (Bella's closer to being a teenager than a baby...) for them, hopefully before they get home. If you want more info, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I know how overwhelmed I was when I came home with all the needs Eliot had that we weren't prepared for. Thankfully, people had thought ahead and sent gift cards so we went shopping! Everything from Target trips for me to BabiesRUs trips for Eliot. Even if you don't live in the STL area but would like to contribute, shoot me an email and I'll give you the details. There was never such a cause for total celebration as this, let's make it as worry free as possible!
Thanks for making my friends your friends throughout this process. You guys are awesome! and Yes, Sharon and I are already trying to scheme to trip to St. Louis for them so she can meet her St. Louis fans!
