welcoming a new year

A little bit of our life from the past year, some snapshots, some portraits...but all us and lots and lots of love.

As I reflect back on the past year and was going through pictures to make the brought back many great memories, I saw so much joy and laughter. I'd describe the past year for William as the year(his first full year with us) where he became a happy, and much more settled little boy. He truly knows we are his family and has matured so much emotionally.
Grace, the epitome of femininity is possibly the most thoughtful and sweet child I've ever known and for that I'm always grateful.
Our oldest son Nick is ever stable, hard working, happy, healthy and he has a serious girlfriend. He's a great guy and awesome big brother to Grace and Will.
I can say 2009 was a wonderful year for us....we are looking forward to all that 2010 brings. Happy New Year. We hope it is good to you!

Gail...I have tears in my eyes as I watch all these beautiful images of this past year.
I have been lucky enough to be following your blog this whole year to see almost every one of them throughout the year and I remember each post with the photo that passed before my eyes right now...especially the one of you holding William at his US adoption and the stunning ones of Grace in Mexico.....your children are beyond precious! I never tire of looking at their amazing faces full of love!

And you, dear of the highlights of this year for me was to have met you in person. Our first...of many, many more meetings in person.

You are just such a wonderful woman, Gail and I am so blessed to have you call me friend.

Happy New Year!

We have been blessed with a wonderful 2009. So happy to see your family grow, love and laugh! We had our first full year with AA and we just could not imagine life without her and yes, her two grown siblings love to grab and hug her! We are all aging as gracefully as we can! You are an inspiration. Happy New Year Day!
