Love from Nana
Loving the opening presents part.
This is the yr that our family will be complete. But until then....boy did we party. We had a wonderful Christmas. Santa was a huge hit. Claire really got what was happening.....Jesus and his birthday was a stumbling block to her. She wanted HIM to be here for his birthday party. She was so sweet with everyone about her presents. Everything was "just what I wanted". Hannah had a few suprises herself. She had been told that the boots she wanted were sold out...she totally believed it. TEE HEE
We then spent a few days with my sister and her wonderful family. It has become a tradition to go for New Years and shop and get one last holiday in before it is all over. She never fails to be a great hostess and her children are all stair-stepped in with mine so I hardly see my girls. They play such wonderful games with each other. They also learn how to work out problems without too much blood shed.
We continue to wait for our boy to come home. He remains in our prayers daily. Why must it take so long???? He needs to be with his family and his family needs to be with him. I am super anxious to see this wonderful plan that God has for me and my family. I must work on being more trusting in his word and knowing that LONGS for me to be happy. I must remember that he loves me like I love my children and would not want me to be worried or anxious about anything. He is constant and never waivering. So until the time comes I will continue to look at the moon and know that Kevin sees the same moon and has the same loving God watching over him

Every call has a beginning. A quiet moment when God whispers a promise to a mother’s heart . A holy place where a father bows and faithfully accepts the journey set before him. A miraculous morning that unexpectedly dawns… Casting its first light on a chosen threshold. A gentle knock..a closed door opens, a sacred invitation sent by the Father.. leads to the other side of the world. Where lonely hearts stare out orphanage windows praying for someone to care.. and then one morning, on an ordinary day an orphan’s life changes... God sends them a second chance...Through you..
We are a family now, a whole,of which you are a part,and you are just as much our child as any in our heart. We do not love you differently,nor would we give up less of all that life has given us to bring you happiness.There is no limit to our love,no boundary you might cross,no price you may be asked to pay,no need to fear its loss. We are now one, the five of us,windows of one home. As long as we have life and breath,You’ll never be alone.~Nicholas Gordon
