The kids are all napping, resting up for the excitement that is on it's way. I was just sitting here at the kitchen table, getting some work done while it's quiet. I'm looking at our tree, decorated with colorful ornaments, lots of little presents wrapped under it and just waiting to be ripped open and enjoyed. I love these few moments of quiet I have right now. The laundry can wait a few more minutes while I sit and think about how blessed I am. How fortunate to have these three beautiful kids, a family I truly love.
For one more moment, I'm going to sit here and think about all the kids still waiting to be adopted back in Russia, and in other parts of the world. I'm just going to send them a thought full of love. A little prayer of peace and hope their way.
Someone is thinking of you.
You are loved.
Happy Christmas, From Denise (and Jim, Julian, Alex, and Alina)
