This Holiday Season has turned out to be a very busy one for Joseph and me. From making most of my Christmas presents, to attending lights in the Heights, shopping, planning a tacky Christmas sweater party, getting fingerprinted for immigration (worth it,) and finding out we are being sent to NYC on a vacation, TOTALLY PAID FOR! Praise the Lord! This was a complete blessing for us. We haven't been on a vacation that hasn't included a conference, retreat, mission trip or 100 youth in over 4 yrs. :) We will leave the morning of the 20th and be back on the 23rd.
We have also been blessed with a nice Christmas bonus and were able to buy warmer clothes for our NYC trip and put a good chunk in our "Adoption Fund" account! :)
We have had our last required appointment. All we have left is a small amount of paperwork to get done. As soon as the fingerprints are processed we will be ready to send off our Dossier! :)
I am so excited to become a parent! I think this will be our last Christmas without a child. I sometimes picture Julani in our house or rocking him in his rocking chair! I just can't wait to have him in my arms!
Please continue to pray for God's will in our lives. Love you all and have a MERRY CHRISTMAS! :)
