Hope in a New Year

Saying goodbye to 2011 is bittersweet. It was a year of a new little life as well as the most heartbreaking moment in our lives. In many ways I am not ready to say goodbye to all this year meant for us. The year defines us in a lot of ways. It also leaves me feeling further away from Christian. My perspective on this earthly world has changed though, so I know I'm actually getting closer to seeing him again. That's hard to grasp most of the time because the loss is indeed endless. There is always that longing ache in the space where he should be.
God's grace and love has carried us through it. We miss Christian so much every day. We would do it all again in a second to be able to hold him for one more minute.

We are hopeful that 2012 will bring good things to us.

Here's to a new year filled with God's grace and love!

"For I know the plans I have for you," says the Lord.
 "Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Jeremiah 29:11
