Decision

Well, we have decided not to do the Moldovan adoption. There are various reasons for this decision but it is good to be back on track again instead of feeling like things were up in the air, so to speak.

Christmas is almost here and we told the girls we were not going to have as many gifts this year so we could save our money for our adoption. Hannah said that if she could only get one gift, it would be to get the orphans. That's how we all feel here. That will truly be a gift!

Merry Christmas to all of you and please remember that this season is not about giving , it's about a gift. May the gift of forgiveness from Jesus Christ fill your hearts this year!

We, too, are eager to meet the little ones that God entrusts to you. How quickly our number of grandchildren will increase! Like having triplets! I have a lot to learn about the special needs of the children who have known little or none of a parent's love--not to mention the love of grandparents, but I look forward to the learning process and then meeting the ones God has chosen for us to love.

The "good tidings of great joy" was given to "all peoples," and soon you will be a part of the transmission of that good news to the peoples of Moldova or Ukraine or wherever your new children live.

Merry Christmas. It will be a happy New Year indeed!

Love,
Mom
