Ellie Pei-Hua Dunn

(start with the pictures from the bottom to top---that's in order)


Grab your tissues... Ellie has been grieving a little, and it just breaks our hearts. I don't know who is crying more...me or her:( What a amazing day...we have been so blessed with a beautiful daughter...

She is so precious, and right where she belongs. The sadness will will fade over time... It's so wise of you to recognize it and know that she is feeling some loss. She just doesn't know what's in store for her yet, trust me when I tell you that in a couple of days you will see a turn around! Once she realizes that she can do no wrong and is safe in the arms of her parents, she'll calm down... Congratulations! Thrilled for all of you. She really is beautiful Deb!

Oh what an amazing day for all of you.
Grieving is normal and each day will get better. It is so emotional for each of you in your own way - but that bond that is forming will be awesome.
I'll be thinking of you and your beautiful daughter.
Congrats on becoming Mom & Dad!
