Happy 8th Birthday, Evalena Claire Claire!

Eva is 8 years old. We’ve reached the point where she’s now been home with us longer than the time she spent in her orphanage.  That’s a good feeling.

Eva’s name, Evalena Claire, means “a bright life.”  She is true to her name.

Eva is kind, intelligent, beautifully made in the image of the living God. She loves fiercely.

Eva is thrilled to be reading and loves to practice walking.  Her developmental gains have come with great investment.  Eva delights in her successes, yet adamantly refuses to give up her role as our baby.

Happy Birthday, to Evalena Claire who is a big girl but still our baby.  You are a joy.

After her party which featured french onion soup with Not Beef Broth and goat cheese (at her insistent request), birthday gifts, and chocolate covered strawberries, we obviously had to have a coffee date.
