goodbye 2008. hello 2009.

2008 was definitely a roller coaster, especially because we were waiting for an adoptive placement! it was full of sadness at times, but many, many blessings. here’s a recap.

  • we completed our home study, after many piles of paperwork, and many hours of parenting classes.
  • experienced A LOT of drama with a side job, but eventually quit {one of the smartest things i’ve ever done}.
  • visited here over spring break.
  • experienced both sadness and happiness with my grandmother’s passing {she passed away, but for a few, short days we were all TOGETHER}.
  • started a blog.
  • went to maui.
  • stayed here and visited family {i love you!}
  • had one of the best days of my life when we met this rad little boy.


can’t wait to see what happens in 2009. it should only get better. change is a’comin’! we are especially excited and hopeful to adopt j!

thanks, bloggers, for all you’ve done for me to get through this year!

your emails and comments have helped make this year memorable…
