It’s a new year, and we have new hope

Happy New Year!

We spent a few days up in Bodega Bay with our nieces to celebrate the new year. We rented an adorable cottage with a fireplace and a hot tub. Most of the time we sat around playing games and eating. On New Year’s Day we picked up some live crab and cooked our first crab dinner. This is going to be a new family tradition!

Dinner is served! Fresh crab and hot garlic butter. Yum!

It’s that time of year where we’re full of hope and good cheer…We know that our birthmother is out there…somewhere, and that soon we ‘ll have a baby to warm our hearts and our home. We feel very positive that 2013 will be our year!
