We had such a wonderful Christmas season. We were blessed by family, friends and each other. As we end this year, marking it one of the greatest of our lives, we are excited to see what 2010 will bring forth. May you cherish this time in the company of those that you love and grow in a faith that will keep you. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Sophia has been and always will be an artist. She gets lost in a daze and when we ask her what she's doing she replys by saying that she is making a song in her head. She'd much rather have a blank piece of paper to design a beautiful piece of original art work than color in the lines and she has an imagination that can create the most amazing dream worlds. Recently her artistic abilities have been noted and admired in Kindergarten. Sophia has authored her first book entitled The Gingerbread Man and has had a piece of artwork chosen by the school district's fine arts curriculum coordinator to be showcased in a public exhibition. We have a feeling that this little artist will continue to create masterpieces and we will forever be her number one fans!

We are officially Gladney approved! I can breath a huge sigh of relief because this means that the work accomplished over the past four months has been accepted by our agency and completion of our dossier is within our very close reach - one slip of paper to be exact! Our file has been moved over to our program caseworker who will guide us though the completion of our dossier and finally to our referral. Having been through the adoption process once, I know that this approval is far from the end. Being able to hold my daughter in my arms, I also know that this approval is one more step closer to our son.
