Happy New Year!

Can you believe it`s already 2011? A year ago we met Meggie & decided (on Dec 29th) to adopt that sweet girl. We then spent the next 2 weeks geeting to know her & realize she was a spit fire and a total joy to be around! Over the last year we have learned so much about adoption, orphans and all the ups & downs! We have been blessed to meet so people, whether through New Horizons for Children, adoption blogs or other friends that are adopting. We have watched 4 girls come home from Latvia, Ethiopia and Kazikstan.

As we wait for our adoption to get some thunder under it`s wings, I think alot about all that it entails. Since we haven`t met Liga yet, we will spend 3-4 weeks "bonding" with her. This is a source of stress for me (Brenna) because it`s sometimes hard to forget that we have already been rejected once. I know we have so much to offer a young girl, albeit not financial but I "worry" - is that long enough for her to "want" us? I`ve known about her for 2 1/2 months and had time to fall in love with her sweet face, blond hair, and pretty smile! Okay, I`m done! I just want whats best for her and for her to know that we are a family that will love her forever. God has been such a huge help in my fears & worries! He knows what she needs in a family & we have prayed for God to close any & every door or to open them so far that we would never question our decisions!

Right now we wait for travel dates & pray that the ticket prices remain "lower"! Also, that we have all the financial resources necessary when the time comes to purchase them.

Well, time to do devotions & put kiddos to bed! Happy New Year!
