On to 2016.

We had so much hope for 2015.  About this time last I was saying things like,

We don't have any idea as to how long the adoption will take, but we have hope that we will at the very least get to see a picture of her sweet face by the end of this year.  How amazing is that thought?!

And yet here we are in 2016 and so much of the excitement has left us and we are feeling weary and a bit heartbroken.  I want to say that we have so much hope for this year, that she may even be home by next Christmas, but hope is scary because sometimes it ends with such disappointment.

We've done all we can.  It's just time to wait more.  To pray more.  Yes, even to hope more.  And to trust that when she is home we will at least be okay with this time.  I'm not sure I can wish for more than that right now.

So, here's to 2016 and the hope that next year my post will look completely different…in a good way!!
