Happy 2012 Everyone! Or, based on your belief system, make the most of the 11 1/2 months you have left before the world explodes or vaporizes or whatever fun ending the Mayans had in store for us. (If the Mayans were so smart, where the hell are they today?)
For us, we're hoping 2012 will be the year we complete our family and adopt our second child. For those of you who are waiting, especially for your first, take heart. You spent 2011 doing all the mundane, taxing, mind numbing work you needed to do to get this far. This year, you're past that, and 2012 will be a year of anticipation and change. The ride of adoption isn't always a smooth one, but the beginning of a new year holds so much promise. Right now, there may be a little life developing and growing that is destined to land in your hearts. That's what I like to think; that somewhere an unborn heart beats, a future uncertain, a decision to be made. Someone is agonizing at the beginning of this year, but will be relieved and at peace by year's end. A child will land where he or she should be, and a family will be made or completed. That's what I'm thinking of right now. We don't know what promise this year holds for any of us, but for a spirit yet to be born, we're waiting for you.
A joyous and happy new year to all my followers.
