blessings

It's funny...I have followed so many blogs for so long now, and am realizing that almost everyone has received a referral or has there baby home...I'm hoping that means we are getting closer...I have enjoyed everyones touching stories of the day they got "the call"...The day they saw their child for the first time, and the day they all made it home as a family.....I have laughed, cried, with many of you whom I've never met..Some days it's really hard for anyone to imagine what we go through with this adventure, and then I turn on my computer and realize I am not alone!!! Thank God....To anyone who has been blessed or who is waiting for there blessing, thank you for sharing all your kind words and encouragement. Hoping 2009 brings the biggest blessing of all. Happy New Year

Such a sweet post! Soon you, too, will be looking at your little lady's face for the first time and your heart will grow 10 times its size that day! We are thinking of you!

Erin this is somthing one day your little lady will be able to look at and see the travel her parents did, just to be able to care and love a child with their whole heart. Not many children have parents who blog their feelings like this. Somthing I wish I had when we were expecting a child... Erin the time will come and I hope very soon.... But every day take a picture in your heart of that little girl, before you know it she will be walking and talking and turning 1,2 or 3... Take care and with many snow kisses.
