Snow Day...Update!

Today we have our first (and I have a feeling) only snow day of the year!  I never have the chance to just "play" on the computer so I took the opportunity to catch up on some of my favorite blogs and I realized.....I miss blogging!  So once goes!


I cannot believe we are already here!  
This year is already proving to be a year of change, growth, renewal, and hope.  
It started out a bit rough...
but with God's grace...
We are well on our way!

The first fun event of the year was celebrating Chinese New Year with some of our dear friends and "family".

God has truly blessed us with so many wonderful relationship because of adopting through THOGL.  We are also so grateful to live such a short distance from so many of them.  

This is a picture of just a few of the many children who have been adopted from THOGL! 

Not only did we get to celebrate CNY with all of these precious children we also had our dear friends the Habuda's (to read their story click here) stay with us for the weekend!

This is Kyler and Levi Habuda!  So thankful Levi is home with his mommy and daddy!

We were so blessed to meet the Habuda's through one of my best friends Jen Chase (she is adopting from Ethiopia, if you want to read her story click here).  Matt and Sarah Habuda have become dear friends of ours!  We loved going through their adoption journey with them!

Sarah, me, and Jen

We love adoption and are so thankful for the friendships and families that we have meet through this amazing/crazy journey!

As we look at the year ahead of us...we don't know where it will lead, but we are so excited!
