In June, we finalized an adoption of someone who has been in our lives for over ten years. With our new daughter, we also became grandparents! If there was a story to write, this would be it-- a story of dreams coming true, of family, of love. We are so thankful to have these permanent additions in our lives and in our family! In the timing of everything, we were able to find our daughter's birth siblings-- a miracle in itself. We hope soon they will be able to reunite in person, though it will involve our overseas travel during intense political challenges.
As the year has gone by, we decidedly broke away from social media in order to have more time to spend with those in our home and nearby as well as to reflect on what life would be like without things like Facebook and Twitter. It's been spiritually renewing, birthing deeply profound awareness of all that is human and charitable. We do miss staying in frequent contact with so many people who have blessed our lives. In case you wanted to talk to us, we're not out of reach. If you are a reader or friend who wants to talk to me for any reason, please don't hesitate to contact me through the contact page. We'd love to hear from you!
