Merry Christmas!

We just want to wish everyone a VERY Merry Christmas! It is bittersweet this year for us of course. We are having a blast with Sage, as she is VERY into opening gifts or "pesants" as she calls them. She really does not care what is in the package, for her it is all about unwrapping and getting every last piece of paper off of it. And seeing how much candy & cookies she can shove in her mouth before getting caught!
But of course our hearts are filled with someone who is not with us. Amazing how you can all fall so completely head over heels in love in such a short time from just a picture and a dream. We have talked alot about how much fun we are all having here, and yet in China sits our daughter. In her life, there was no plate to make for Santa before bedtime, or visions of sugarplums dancing in her head. No promise of Santa, with a morning full of surprises. No family to surround her in love and hugs and kisses and yes, even lots of candy! So while we are happy here, our hearts are also sad knowing she is ours and we are with out her. Yet, we hold on to the promise that God will hold her for us, and that NEXT year, she will be surrounded by bows, and packages, and cookies and SO many hugs and kisses!
Once again we are reminded of the MANY blessings God has given us in our children, our gifts.
May your Christmas be full of many blessings, but especially Jesus!
