All I Wanted…

I have always loved Christmas…it’s my most favorite time of year. It just makes me deliriously happy. The food, the parties, the decor, the birth of Jesus, the general feeling of happiness and merriment…
But not so long ago, I remember that even though I loved Christmas, it was also a sad time for me. I was waiting…and all I wanted was a child.

It really is different celebrating Christmas with a little one. Little M is so excited about everything. Every new experience is great and each moment is celebrated. The Twelve Days Of Christmas comes on the radio, and you would think Santa just walked in the front door.

I love that… It’s what I always wanted.

I know many of you are waiting for your little ones this Christmas…maybe you’re waiting to be matched, or waiting to travel and pick up your child. Maybe you’re waiting, and hoping that this is the month you find out you’re pregnant. Whatever you’re waiting for, know that I will be thinking of you this Christmas, and I hope your wait comes to an end very soon!
