"All is connected ... no one thing can change by itself."

Tomorrow we have been on the waiting list for a referral for a year.

It's funny how time changes a situation. We never would have guessed things would have turned out the way they have. Never.

A lot has changed over the past year. Who knows what exactly will happen with our adoption or the adoptions of so many other families. I do belive that we will bring our son home from Vietnam…eventually. In the meantime I will be happy. I will be thankful. To sum the past year up by only acknowledging our pursuit to adopt would be a disservice to everything else that has happen in our lives. Here I am a year later and I still have all my loved ones with me. No divorces, no deaths in our family. Instead we have had weddings and births.

Today I will look forward and be happy for all the wonderful things in our life that have yet to come and I will look back and be greatfull for all of our blessings.

I'll go anywhere as long as it is forward-— David Livingstone

Happy Birthday, Daddy!

Happy Birthday, Daddy. There isn't one day that goes by that I don't think of you. I love you and miss you more than anyone could ever know. I know that you are with me in spirit and that gives me comfort.

Happy Birthday.
