Merry Christmas 2010

Wow!  What a year this has been.  I can't wait until next Christmas to see what happened in 2011.  By next Christmas we should be a family of 6 (God-willing). 

This year we will have a white Christmas.  It snowed about 2 inches where we live overnight.  The peaceful, graceful, light snow was still falling this morning when we woke up.  It was beautiful.  Last year, in our area, we had way too much snow and cold for my liking.  This year has not been as cold, so that is a blessing all in itself. 

We received our fingerprinting appointment on Dec. 17 as I had expected.  Our appointment is scheduled for January 10, 2011. 

I wish you all a blessed new year!  May God be in your EVERY day.

God Opens Doors To Joy

When God opened the door to adoption, I knew that waiting on the other side would be a brand new child to enter into our family.

I know that I have an amazing family.  I have a wonderful husband and 3 precious gifts for sons.   You can not beat those priceless gifts.  They are so dear to my heart.

What I didn't know is that through adoption I would come across some other AMAZING families.  I have made 2 new friends already and have met other fabulous God-fearing, child-loving people through adoption boards.  These people fill my heart with joy and sometimes my eyes with tears (mostly good happy tears). 

What another grand, undeserved blessing.  Praise God!

Now, we wait a few more days.  We should have our fingerprinting appointment by this Friday (Dec 17).  Since I think our family is so amazing, I hope the US government find us suitable to adopt. 

May God Bless your heart!
