Thankful

We just finished eating our Thanksgiving Dinner.
It is a tradition in our family to go around the table and say what we are thankful for.
I jokingly said I was thankful for bedtime, and that got our tradition started.
We all started listing all these things we were thankful for.....
Roof over our heads,
Food,
Family,
Friends,
Children,
Spouses,
money to buy what we need,
Heavenly Father
At that moment, Alyssa, My 3 year old daughter said
"I am thankful for Jesus."
That made us all stop and look at her in amazement. 
We are so proud of our little one.
Then we continued listing things....
All my girls are thankful for their family, and thankful that we are getting to bring home a brother soon.
The melt my heart with how much they love him already.
Of course we got the silly answers like...
Monsters,
Spiders,
Power Rangers,
and all sorts of other things.

As they were listing all of these things, I started thinking about what Adam has to be thankful about.
He does have a roof over his head, but other than that, there was not much I could think of.
I got excited to think of how awesome it will be next year when we can all be together as a family.
I cannot wait to hold my son. I cannot wait to see his smile. I cannot wait to kiss his face.
I cannot wait to tuck him into his own bed at night. I cannot wait to show him love.
I am so thankful to have him in my life!!! He is a blessing to me!!

I am also thankful for all the amazing people that have helped us in our journey to bringing our son home.
I can never say it enough.
Your love, your prayers and your donations mean more to me than you will ever know!!!!
