2008 - Now that's a great year!

2008 has been kind to us as a family. I'll be sad to say goodbye to this year. I haven't been able to say that in several years.

IN THE YEAR 2008:

We saw the completion of our new home.

We were able to take a wonderful trip as a family and with 94 of our church family and friends on a cruise to Alaska.

Our agency finally got accreditation (although we'd most definitely still be waiting for a referral if we were still in the Russian Program)

Baby C surprised all of us by entering the world with his Mommy looking on!!


I suppose the only thing that really didn't go our way in 2008 was the Presidential election, but we will just pray for the man who got the job and have faith that God will guide his steps.

2008 was such a great year that I'm almost afraid for 2009 to take its place. How could it get any better???

I pray that each of you has a blessed and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

But better it will be. You'll watch your son take his first steps and start talking. Not to mention all the fun in watching D grow up.

Glad this year is a happy ending for us both.

I am so glad someone out there had a great 2008. Where you are sad to see 2009 takes its place, I am SOOO very happy for a new year to come! 2008 as you know was terrible for us. May God bless us all with a wonderful, better than we could even imagine, 2009!
