2010 is definitely a year to go down in the books for this family! Wow! When I look back and realize that it was just 11 months ago that we were in China...amazing!! Wesleigh has definitely been the "theme" of the year. Most of our time/energy has been spent making sure she was adjusting well and felt secure and loved. I'm pretty sure we accomplished that, as she has made herself right at home and fit right in to the craziness. She is the most amazing miracle. When I look at her, I can't help but think about her amazing journey to her forever family. She has been through more, in her 2 1/2 years, than most of us in our lifetimes. God has definitely had his hand on Wesleigh from the very beginning. Some ask, "How could God want her to be abandoned". He didn't, but he knew it would happen. And he turned what the enemy meant for harm, into good. I am in awe of all He has done. I am in awe of His perfect timing. I am in awe of a little 2 year old girl, from an orphanage in China, who has turned our lives upside down. She has changed our lives. My boys will never be the same because of her. I will never be the same because of her.

So what does 2011 hold for our family? Not too long ago, I would have said it would be a calmer year. No more paperwork, government agencies (especially USCIS which causes me to have chest pains just saying the name!), no planned life changing events. Hmmm.....well.....looks like it's going to be another exciting year in our house! Yes, as many of you have guessed, we do have news...
We are going back to China!!!
I will post details of where we are in the process in the next few days.
I wish you all a wonderful 2011. I hope that it brings you much joy, peace and love.
Thanks for being a part of my "wild ride"!! This bloggy world has been such a source of support, information, friendship and fun!! Many of you will be making a journey to China in the coming year, and I can't wait to see it unfold!
God is Good!!
