Love....H2H Important Things

Christmas is usually a time of year that brings out the jolliest, happiest and most loving memories in families and for our family this is especially true this Christmas. Since the Fall of 2011 my husband and I have been fostering with the hope of adopting three beautiful little girls, our intent from day one was to adopt and in working with our local children's agencies we were placed with 3 beautiful little girls, all sisters who needed a stable and loving home. How does Christmas tie into this you ask? Well, on December 21st our prayers were answered, we received a Christmas Miracle and the adoption of our little girls, now young ladies was finalized and we are now and forever a family! The road was long, silly, hard, emotional, crazy, exhausting, wacky, and wonderful all at the same time and one I would willing start all over again if it meant I got to call these girls my daughters. 

I made this card, the first of many...to thank our friends, family and loved ones for supporting us on this journey. As I said, it was not always easy but we were never alone in this process.
