Goodbye 2010

When I look back on 2010, I will remember 2 events in my life (and not necessarily in this order:)):

First, we lost our sweet, majestic, boisterous and cuddly boy, King. He is so missed.

Second, and by far the BIGGEST and GRANDEST and most AMAZING thing that has ever happened to us, our son Jackson came into our lives:

The moment I first held my son

The first time I fed my sweet boy

The moment Jason became a daddy and first held his son

Life will always hold immense joy, as well as sometimes unexplainable loss. Years 2008 and 2009 were years of incredible loss for our family. 2010 will always be the year in which our family was healed by one sweet little boy...and by his birthparents, who love this special little boy so much and who ultimately trusted us to be his mom and dad. What a powerful year! I have no doubt that 2011 holds another miracle for us. While I am sadly saying goodbye to a year that can never and will never be forgotten in our home, I am happily saying hello to the year that will bring us our daughter! While it won't be easy, I am very sure it will be miraculous in every way. Happy New Year to all of you...wherever you may be on your particular journey. May 2011 be a year full of miracles for you and your family.


  1. I am so excited for your little gorl to get here!

  2. Gosh, I can't believe how much bigger Jackson is now than he was in these pics! It blows me away.

    Much happiness and many blessings on your family in the new year!
