Happy New Year!

I'm looking forward to 2009 with much anticipation. This will (hopefully) be the year we officially complete our family. :) And yes, I have said that before. But I MEAN it this time!! LOL!

2008 was a great year. I decided to go back to school for my social work degree, a decision that has been in my heart for a long, long time. I'm completely enjoying my classes (well most of them) and can't wait to complete my degree (long time yet). 2008 also brought many fabulous memories with my great kids and husband. We all went to AZ in February/March to see my in-laws, then traveled on to Disneyland for a few days. It was the first time there for all but one of us (Todd) so it was a magical trip. :) 2008 was also the year we decided to add another child to our family...a decision that surprised and delighted all of us.

Tonight, we'll celebrate the new year quietly, all home together, just the way I like it. So, Happy New Year to all!

P.S. Today marks 9 months of waiting for Chloe's referral.

hi michelle! i enjoyed reading about sara and jacob...and look forward to watching you progress with your taiwan adoption.

you asked about my camera on my blog. i have a canon rebel xti. i have 3 lenses, but i use the 50mm 1.4 the most. i am currently taking an online class that is taught by christi of rawsii photography. she is great!

if you would prefer a point and shoot, i just recommended a Canon SD 870IS to a friend and she loves it. i have never used on but a pro photographer gave it a thumbs up.

just let me know if you have any questions! happy new year!

We too are hoping for a referral very soon. Has Gladney received any referrals this month? We had 1 girl referral and hopefully there will be more.

We think we are tied for the number one spot. That is based on our yahoo group list. Of course there could be people that aren't on the list so we might not be number 1. Good luck and hopefully we will all hear some good news soon!
