Giving Thanks

All has been quiet on the "I love you this much" homefront...well...quite frankly...because all's been quiet on the homefront! And sometimes that is a blissfully wonderful thing!

I was just looking back at my posts from this time last year and cannot believe all that has happened! Literally, a lifetime ago...

It has been almost one year since the blessed event that forever changed the lives of so many. Almost one year since the big transfer. I can honestly say on one hand it seems like just yesterday, and on the other hand, I truly cannot remember our lives "before".

It fills my heart with more joy than words can possibly say to see this beautiful little boy with his parents. To see the love in their eyes for him.

And for this, I am thankful.

This Thanksgiving, I am thankful for the immense blessings that have been bestowed upon me, and I am eternally grateful that God led us to this amazing couple and enabled us to unite them with their son.

Happy Thanksgiving!
