I’m thankful to work at a place which encourages us to bring our children to work on Christmas Eve day. After 22 years of going in on my own on the 24th, today all that changed and it was amazing to walk to work with Hannah in her stroller and realize that finally it was me who was taking my child to work!! I’m a mom and I am still thankful to God every single day for allowing me the awesome privilege of being Hannah’s mom!
I didn’t even remember that these beads will still on a shelf below my desk until I saw Hannah playing with them. When I realized what she was doing tears immediately sprang to my eyes. For those who may not have been following my blog while I waited for Hannah, each of these beads represented 1 day of files that China had to match before I would receive Hannah’s referral. These beads moved painfully slowly but I can tell you without a word of a lie that Hannah was worth every single second of the wait as truly she is the one and only child that God was preparing for me. She is my daughter and in His perfect timing He brought us together. Thank you Lord!!
Hannah and I were both surprised when Santa took time out of his busy schedule to visit Mama’s work! At first she was a little concerned so I reassured her that I’d be happy to go with her to visit Santa
and gave him a big hug before waving 'bye!’
Wow….what a difference from just a month ago!
