I have to admit I am a bit emotional as 2007 is coming to an end. This has been the best year of my life. We found out Gabbie was out of PGN on 1/18/07. Gabbie was placed in our arms forever on 2/5/07 and we returned home with our daughter on 2/8/07.
I have learned so much this past year. Being a mother is the most difficult, wonderful, amazing thing in the world. I now understand my own mother so much more and what she went through with me (sorry mom!) Watching my mother turn into an amazing grandma has been one of the greatest things. She loves Gabbie's so much and Gabbie really loves her too. I really feel my mom and I are now closer than ever and I love this.
Watching my husband become a wonderful daddy to our baby girl has been incredible. I love watching them together. She really loves her daddy and he loves her more than anything. I do believe this has made me love my husband even more.
Gabbie has brought me more joy than I ever thought I could have. I truly love this child with every bit of my heart. It is so hard to believe just two years ago we started looking at International Adoption and here we are today. There is no doubt that she was meant to be our baby. God's plan is much bigger than ours!
Although I am kind of sad to see 2007 go, I must admit I am really excited to see what 2008 holds for us.
Happy New Year!
