We're just a few hours away from 2007, and I'm ready.
2006 has been a long and bumpy ride. We've spent the year riding the adoption roller coaster up and down and around some scary curves, but the end is in sight. We know that it will have been well worth every bump when we hold our child for the first time.
Our families have been healthy. No major scares from anyone this year. That's a plus. My youngest sister got married this year and just gave birth to their daughter, Josie. A new baby in the family is always a plus. Another of my sisters and her husband made the decision to adopt from China also, so our children will always have that bond. Though based on current trends, it will most likely be 2008 before she joins our family.
I've made so many new friends this year. Some from adopting, some from blogging, some on the Internet, and some IRL. This was a plus plus! All in all, it's been a year of pluses with a few scary bumps, but nothing bad. Can you really ask for more than that?
To all my friends out there, past, present, and future, I wish you all a year filled with happiness, health, and the good fortune of many friends.
