It's hard to believe that last year at this time Justin and I were in Ethiopia meeting our daughter for the first time. We first saw her, held her, and kissed her sweet face on December 17, 2010. From the pictures we had seen and the stories we heard, we were truly expecting to meet a shy and scared little girl that day. I was prepared to wait patiently for her to warm up to us, but instead I was met with a hug and a kiss from the happiest child I had ever seen.

I am so behind on blogging. My camera broke before Thanksgiving and I like to post pictures when I blog, so I just haven't blogged. I decided to steal pics off of people's facebook pages and do a quick recap.
We spent Thanksgiving break with Justin's family. We went to the Christmas parade in downtown Fort Worth. Fun was had by all!
We are enjoying our December, but we are as busy as ever. Two Decembers ago we were frantically trying to finish our dossier so that we could get on the wait list for our daughter in Ethiopia. Last year we were getting ready to fly to Ethiopia to meet our precious Mia Grace for the first time. This year, praise the Lord, she is home!!
Justin will be starting a new job as Director of Productions for the Louisiana Baptist Convention in January. So, our family will be moving to Alexandria, LA a few days after Christmas. I'm so proud of Justin and happy for this new opportunity for our family. Of course, we are sad to say goodbye to our friends here.
