Merry Christmas

Tomorrow we will celebrate our first Christmas together as a family of three. For seven years, we waited and wanted children - and knew in our hearts that we could never give up. This Christmas our little man is here and he will help us to experience this wonderful holiday in a new way. Words simply cannot express or convey the depth of our love and gratitude to our Heavenly Father for the gift of Quint.

We also consider what great sacrifice it was for God to send his only Son, the Lamb of God - to be born and die so that we might live.

~ Father, thank you for blessing us with our son, Quint, who we love and cherish more than we ever thought possible. But even more than that, we thank you for the most precious gift of all - Your Son - who because of his great love for us took our place at Calvary. We cherish that gift above all others. ~

Merry Christmas to you and your families and may you truly feel blessed by the great gift that was and is and is to come; Jesus Christ...

~Christie

Hello! I wanted to let you know that a friend of mine also has a blog called A bushel and a Peck and she is a mother who has adopted from Ethiopia as well (7 bio children plus four Ethiopian!). We are in the process of adopting siblings from Ethiopia. Your son is absolutely beautiful! Merry Christmas!
