As you can see we hung 6 stockings by the fire this year... one for our little girl who is waiting half way around the world for us to come and get her- while we wait here to hold her in our arms. She is never not in our thoughts and in our prayers. We may not know what she looks like yet but our youngest daughter is out there and we wish more than anything that she was here with us this Christmas. But we know that it is highly likely she will be with us for the next one! So even though this part is difficult- not being able to spend these special firsts with her- we rejoice in the fact that soon we will be together and begin our whole lifetime of special moments together. And that makes us very happy indeed.
