Grateful

My heart is so grateful for what God has provided in 2015.  I am grateful for my past and my time as Alex & Emma's mommy because it has prepared me for this new adventure.  I am grateful for the young woman who never had a fair chance in life and for the incredible decision she made for her daughter to have more.  I am grateful for the time we spent getting to know her and that she chose us to be Eleanor's parents.  I am grateful for Esther, who listened when God placed us on her heart and has not only facilitated the legalities of Eleanor's adoption, but has shared in our joy.  I am grateful for each and every day that passed and how our story has unfolded.  I am grateful for my daughter.  I am grateful for the man that I share my life with.  I am grateful for this house that we call home.  I am grateful for Drew's career, the professional opportunities it provides and for a company that prioritizes family & faith.  I am grateful for family & friends that have journeyed with us, cried with us, and laughed with us.  To God be the glory!
