Peace, Joy & Love

It has been many months since we last posted on here & we have had a lot to be grateful for this year.  We now have a referral of a beautiful, one year old boy!  We actually got our referral in July, but this year has been anything but peaceful.  We have had many ups/downs this year, but God is good and we have endured through all of them.  So, hopefully we will be able to post on here a little more regularly.  When we were waiting, reading other adoptive family posts always helped to get us through.

We are patiently waiting now to receive approval from the Thai government and hopefully we can travel this summer to get our son.  It helps that we get updates periodically on him.  We also are allowed to send him monthly gifts.  We were very excited about our most recent update as the pictures we received showed him in an outfit we sent.  We realize to some this may seem insignificant, but for a family who is waiting to bring their son home from half way around the world this meant so much. 

We wish to all a very Merry Christmas full of peace, joy & love.
