A look back and a look forward!!

Today marks the very first day of 2012.  Wow, we have so much to be thankful for over the last year.  We are really thankful for a time of rest and relaxation over the past two weeks.  Josh was able to take the week off between Christmas and New Year's and we were able to spend time with family and some much needed time at home.  God is good.  No, our year did not include bringing home our son, but we are still in constant prayer that we will 1.) be patient in the wait and 2). receive a referral soon.  The road after referral will not be easy either as we will have to travel for a court date, pass court, then be submitted to embassy, etc. BUT we are not anxious because we know our Father in Heaven is in control and we are not.  In the mean time we are enjoying time with our precious daughter who just turned three year old! How did that happen?? And of course the business is about to ensue as we get ready to head back to work this week!  I thought I'd leave you with some pictures of our time together as a family over the last few weeks!!
