Wishing everyone a Very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!! Can't believe it was a year ago that we were packing our suitcases and getting ready to fly to Ethiopia to meet Ava. This Christmas will be special because it is also the day Ava arrived home to meet all the Jarvies.
We celebrated Thanksgiving at Disneyworld this year and Ava LOVED Mickey (and all the characters). Unfortunately, her love did not carry over to Santa. Our first picture of her with Santa is not a pretty one.......she's screaming and trying to jump off his lap!
As we celebrate this wonderful time of year, I can't help but think back to all the beautiful orphans we met while we were meeting Ava. Thankfully, many of those children have been matched with forever families, but many have not. I hope that more families will feel called to adopt these amazing children.
We have much to be thankful for this year and we look forward to 2011!
