Happy New Year!


So Long 2008


I have to admit I'm not sad to see 2008 leave. We've had some good times this year, but it's also been crazy. Richard's business has gone through some rocky times, hurricane Ike decided to give us a beating (we're still paying for that with longer school days), and the CCAA has decided that waiting "forever" for a baby should be just fine with us. Add a crazy presidential election, and it might just be enough to make a person lose their minds!


I don't want to make it all sound bad. We had the most awesome snow day ever, spent alot of time at the beach this summer, I got to meet some bloggy friends in person, and baseball season was alot of fun :)


All in all, though, I'm praying that 2009 is a better year.


My family had 2 "Christmas miracles" (dubbed so by Cade). We had that awesome snow day in South Louisiana, and our dog, Britney made it back home to us. I am praying for one more: that the CCAA will get on with it! Let us bring our babies home, and empty out those orphanages!!


Here's wishing everyone a safe, healthy and happy new year!!

And a very happy 2009 to your family, too.

I certainly hope that this is the year you see your sweet daughter's face for the first time, and even more so, hold her in your arms.

Amen, girlfriend! I just told my husband tonight that we won't hear about Emma in 2008!!! We had a rough year here with the loss of my father! I am praying for a year filled with peace and not sadness and the addition of our little girl!!!
