On last year's Christmas, we found the surprise of our U.S. approval for the children to be classified as our immediate relatives in our mailbox. One long year later, they finally made it home. (After a year of the U.S. approvals, it took another year for the !ndia approvals...way too long of a wait for children needing families.) We are so thankful that Ajay and Smita finally celebrated their first Christmas! They were our greatest gift this year. The children had learned about Christmas trees and Santa from the orphanage, and they learned about baby Jesus once they arrived in America. They attended a candlelight service at church on Christmas Eve. What a privilege to be able to teach them about the one true God and the Light of the world. Happy Birthday, Jesus! We hope that all of you had a very blessed Christmas!
