Our story in the news

Here is our story in the local newspaper! We were thankful to be able to share about our journey to Elliana. I just hope that our pathway can continue to provide hope to others.

6 Months

Elliana is six months old today and I cannot believe how quickly time has flown. We have just revisited sleep training, and I'm proud to report that Ellie is sleeping in her own crib in her room. It's been pretty hard on Brandon and myself. I miss her being in the room with us, but we are all sleeping better with our space. Miss Ellie absolutely loves watching television. It's like she just realized that the big box with the talking people inside it is funny. She loves to eat bananas, sweet potatoes, and butternut squash. She doesn't like taking bottles and would rather eat from the "Mommy Buffet." She now says "ma-ma" but only when she's crying. I've been a terrible blogger, but only because I feel so overwhelmed all of the time. My schedule has finally slowed down and I'm trying to enjoy the little moments with my precious miracle. I'm still struggling daily with postpartum depression, but I'm surrounded by a supportive group of friends and family. I have missed writing here (free therapy). Sometimes it's just hard because I feel guilty for being on the other side of infertility now. My thoughts and prayers are still with all of you in the trenches fighting for your forever family.
