Running For Ellie

This morning, Jeff joined 11,999 other runners in Louisville for the 2009 mini marathon. Wow.. what a blast! Bryan and I, along with my mom & dad and Jeff's mom were there to cheer him on.
I can't tell you how proud I was of him as he crossed that finish line. He rocked. And.. he was the sexiest runner out there too :)

This was all done as a way to raise money to bring Ellie home. I cannot wait to tell her this story. She's one blessed little girl to have a daddy like him, as Bryan can already attest to.

Woo hoo... he made it!

Bryan was so proud

I'm proud of you Jeff. I love you!

Very cool! Holly, one of the blogs I follow just picked up their son from Ethiopia. I thought I'd give you the link in case it's the same area you are going. Hope you hear soon!
