Christmas was such a gift this year. Honestly, it's been really painful the past 2 years and always felt incomplete, like someone was missing. I found it hard to fully enter in when I knew 2 children were waiting in an orphanage somewhere in Africa. I'm so thankful they were finally home this year. My heart and prayers go out to those still waiting the arrival of their little ones. It will come and when it does, there's no looking back, except to celebrate and give thanks for all God's done.
Stay tuned...there's an exciting post coming very soon!!!!
