Our Ellie Grace was very well cared for. In fact, it was overwhelming to experience the hand off because of how special the orphanage made it for her. They sent her with a scrapbook, professional photos, and a commemorative plate. They loved her well. She was the cleanest, well dressed babe I have ever been handed. She is very small for her age wearing only 12 to 18 month clothes, but she is a healthy weight for her size. She isn't eating and doesn't want anything to do with anything in her mouth, but formula from her bottle. Feeding is going to be a challenge. She is sitting up and in the beginning stages of crawling but is very floppy. We are so excited to continue to get to know who she is and how we can help her reach her full potential. Her eyes are so big and bright. Sweet girl had a few times when her little tears were flowing because of being with strangers, but she ate her bottles and slept well. We have a very busy day today to complete the adoption and I am praying she can rest some while we are out.
