Here's to 2009!!

Happy New Year -- a day early!!! 2008 wasn't an incredibly memorable year. There were no babies born in our home, but we did "get pregnant" in a matter of speaking. At the beginning of 2008, I would have never believed that the end of the year would bring another member to our family, let alone a sweet little boy from Eastern Europe!

Our year ends pretty quietly, but it is just the beginning for our family. We will be completing our family in 2009 and bringing Jacob home. I keep trying to think of how it is all going to work, but it will work in His Plan and in His Time and God will provide! I also find myself trying to imagine long into the future and wonder what the kids will like/dislike when they are 10, 9, 8 and 8. Too surreal to think about sometimes and I don't want to miss a single minute of TODAY by worrying and wondering what "might" be tomorrow!

I am not one to make resolutions -- to easy to break and not stick to!! BUT this year, I guess my resolution is to cherish EVERY minute with my kids. The good, the bad and the ugly! For if it weren't for those "ugly" moments, the happy ones wouldn't exist! I Thank GOD for the blessings in my life....my wonderful husband (who I couldn't live without), my fabulous children (who make me laugh everyday), and my wonderful extended family and especially our friends. Our good friends who are supporting us spiritually through this journey and through our life journey as well! I love you all!!

HAPPY 2009!! Here's to a wonderful year, full of excitement, good health, love and family!!!!
