This Was Worth The Wait

Last year at this time I was longing to know my child. I had been sure that we would be celebrating our referral with family over the holidays, but a few weeks before Christmas our first match fell though. It was a lonely Christmas, not to mention the two of us got snowed in on Christmas day. Now a year later we are a family of three, exactly how we were meant to be. I am still amazed by the way God knit our little family together. This was definitely worth the wait!

The one year old is almost as big as the three year old. 


Liya got a sled for Christmas from my parents. As you can see Liya loved her sled and being out in the snow and cold. In fact, she loved it so much that she took the longest nap of her life (3 hours 10 minutes!, ordinary = 1 hour 20 minutes) afterward and even took her nap 1.5 hours earlier than usual.

Faceplant in the snow!

Having so much fun!
