Well, 2008 was a good year…we had lots of fun with friends and family, and even got a vacation! However, the adoption process was tough and waiting for our call was even tougher. Because of that, I’m glad 2008 is over. Seven months of waiting for our baby are now behind us, so we are that much closer to creating our family. I have to stay positive…I know it will happen!
2009 will be our year…I can feel it! Here are my resolutions for this year:
1. Of course, become a mother. Although I have no control over this one, I wanted to put it on my list. Remember, we can find our own birthmother as well, so if any of you know someone who is pregnant and looking to place her baby with a family for adoption, please let us know!
2. Lose the 10 pounds I gained in 2008. I am a stress eater and this year was pretty stressful!
3. Try new activities to keep me fit over the winter. It’s too cold to walk outside, so I’m going to try ice skating, and snowshoeing to keep me busy.
4. Do more volunteer work. I went back to my roots this year and started doing volunteer work in our community. I baked cookies, donated clothes and money, went caroling at local group homes, etc. I want to do more of that this year…it just fills my heart.
Well, that’s about it. I would love to hear your resolutions…
