About this site

We wanted to created a space to share pictures and brief stories of our family life as it is now. We thank those of you who followed Micah’s beginning journey in the NICU.  Because of the joy we have been given, we would like to continue to share pieces of the story here.

The name elletrae is Danish for alder tree. This tree was used to make wooden shoes in Denmark and surrounding countries.  The name “Elniff” is derived from the word elletrae because this type of tree was on the corner of a triangular piece of property in Denmark, where Sam’s ancestor lived.
