Happy New Year from our family to yours! It has been an amazing and challenging year for us. We have SO much to be thankful for, and 2014 is going to be a great year as we look forward to the next chapter of our amazing adoption adventure.
Adopting from Eastern Europe has allowed us to connect with so many great families and for this we are truly grateful. So many folks have reached out to us with support, advice, and encouragement. In this process you really learn who you can lean on. We just recently had a family who has adopted from the same country reach out to us to share their experiences. We had a wonderful conversation with them on the phone and we were energized by their excitement for us and all of the good tips they shared with us.
Adding four children to our family this year is finally going to happen!!! We will be a big family (they rock!), not as big as the Duggar family, but we will be doubling in size. We can't wait for the adventures, challenges and good times we will have. Obstacles and hard days will occur but those are things that all families experience.
Now for a little tease!! We have a big fundraiser coming up on January 13th and all of YOU can be apart of it. Not just giving, but participating in how successful it is. We will release a video that I promise you will find entertaining and hopefully brings a smile to your face. More to come next week!
As I close out, I would be remiss if I did not mention that our beloved puppy turned two on New Years Eve! Charlie is going to love having four more people to love him on. I am pretty sure he will love having four more subjects in his kingdom ;)
