Thanksgiving, so thankful

Thanksgiving Day, when we take time to reflect on what we are thankful for, and as a Christian, I reflect my thanks to my Lord.  This year I can look at the face of my daughter and I am so thankful for Mia Jade finally being home, for her health, her adjustment, and her joyful personality.  Of course I am so thankful for the wonderfulness of Zane!  And I have a wonderful husband who is a happy daddy.  I honestly have never been happier in my entire life.  I am so thankful to God and how He has blessed my family.

Today had an extra blessing, a surprise email from a new friend in China.  I asked if she would buy local items and take them to the orphanage as a donation from me and of course Mia.  While they were there, they were able to get some photos from one of the nanny's cell phone!  They are a bit blurry but a wonderful glimpse at her before she came home.

This one has a date stamp of Sept 9th, her Gotcha Day, just hours before we were united!
And now, into Christmas season.  I am so excited for Mia Jade's first Christmas!  Yes, she was born before last Christmas but this is her first Christmas.  And it will be magical!
