And so this is Christmas

Only 12 months since last Christmas, but a long lifetime ago.

Last year, Mommy and Daddy were telling our families about our plan to adopt you, even though you hadn’t yet been born.

This Christmas, Santa visited our home to bring our little girl her presents.

The month before Christmas is the season of advent, we await the Christ child’s coming into the world. Last year, we were looking forward to your arrival into the world. This year, here you are in our world, our living room, our lives and our hearts.

During this advent, I’ve often thought about Joseph.

Joseph committed to the awesome responsibility of raising someone else’s child as his own.

So have I. And I’m as happy and pleased as I could be this Christmas.
