Thanksgiving Blessings

We have such grateful hearts as we ponder upon all of our God-given blessings! While driving to visit my mom (who's out of the hospital, yea!) for Thanksgiving, each of us listed 3 things we were thankful for. I thought it would be a great idea to document those things as it tells you a little bit of our heart at this time.

Josh is thankful for his new snowboard/boots/bindings, his dog-Chloe, and his much-used IPod.
Courtney is thankful for her autographed copy of the new Jonas Brothers book called, Burning Up!, her home, and her boyfriend-Steven.
Frank is thankful for his health, family, and home.
I, Paula, am thankful for the blessings from God that have provided the necessary funds to make this adoption work, my heart procedure that has cured me of those crazy episodes, and my wonderful husband.

We are also so thankful for our extended family, friends, and AWAA family who have supported us throughout our adoption journey, for without your encouragement and kindness we wouldn't have made it this far! God bless!

We will be traveling to China together! I can't believe it is our turn, finally. I've been following your blog too. We won't be in Beijing until 9:00 pm. We leave out of LAX. We'll definitely get to know each other on this life changing trip. I can't wait to see Karleigh Mei in your arms as well.
