We started the new year at our friends house playing games and eating yummy treats. We watched to ball drop on the TV. Welcome 2013!! I have a great feeling that our adoption will happen this year!!
January zoomed by... not sure where it went?? I can't believe how fast the months slip passed. I remember my mother saying this when I was a kid and not understanding what she meant, but now I get it. We are already one week into February. I've been busy planning our Valentine's Couples Dinner. All the Valentine decorations are up and today I am picking up grocery items for the dinner. We really look forward to hosting our dear friends for this fun night. We are going to eat dinner, play some games, take some fun photos and talk. I am going to make these little heart Kisses for name cards at our dinner.
It has been a very cold 2013 with most of the days below freezing. Yesterday was finally in the 30's and the sun was out. I am glad we have had more snow this winter, but I am ready for spring!!
I just watched a wonderful movie titled "October Baby". It is a very touching movie. I watched it twice. Of course I cried too. I really liked to lyrics to the songs too. I hope others will watch this movie and see the beauty in adoption.
I went to an adoption conference a little over a year ago and I was thinking about it today. I recall while sitting through one of the seminars, that a thought came to me, "adoption is like a big puzzle". I remember thinking that my husband and I needed to look harder for our birthmother puzzle piece. I hope that through our more concerted efforts of late, that we will be blessed with that piece to our puzzle. Our prayers go out to all women who are considering this great act of love: Adoption.
