We are leaving in the morning to head to my parent's house to do Christmas. Last week's snowstorm delayed our gathering until now. It has been fun having one more holiday with family to look forward to! I am very excited to ring in the new year with my parents, sister, brothers, nieces and nephews.
And so as we wind down 2010 it is with a sincere heart that I say, "thank you". When I did my first blog post (here) I wasn't sure what to expect. Let me tell you that I didn't expect to be so encouraged, supported (financially and prayerfully) and to have made so many new friends. I have enjoyed reading every comment and email. I have cheerfully packed and mailed every "got love?" order. I have read and commented on your blogs. I have found it such a privilege to pray for you and follow your adoption journeys. What a blessing to connect with so many moms that love the Lord, their children and adoption.
God is not unjust; He will not forget your work and the love you have shown Him as you have helped His people and continue to help them.
I am so happy to welcome in the new year. I am excited to follow the Lord where ever He leads my family. I am clinging to His promise to continue the good work that He has begun in me. My heart overflows with the joy of seeing the face of my fifth child. I will continue to pray for you, many who are waiting, as well. And may many of us have another stocking to hang next year! :)
