Happy Holidays

I have lost my zest for blogging these days...I used to have all kinds of inspiration for writing a post...some silly, some not...but these days I literally have nothing.

Christmas is right around the did that happen?

We have not heard anything new on the paperwork front since a couple of weeks ago when were told it was promised and was coming....but no confirmation it has arrived.

We did get new photos of our wee boy and he is breathtakingly gorgeous...he has gained weight and is a little chubberton....and he looks so healthy! We are told he is quite the little character and just need to see his long lashes and beautiful smile to understand why!

Our hearts ache for some positive hopefully in the New Year we will have some to pass on.

The next week or so is going to be busy with last minute Christmas shopping (because I always leave it to the last second) and getting together with friends!

So, for now I am taking a blog break until after the holidays.

Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and all the best in the New Year to everyone we know near and far.

Much Love,

Rana and Yvan

{Hugs} Have a wonderful holiday, and we will pray for a break from your break to announce some good news, if not during the holidays it better happen very shortly after, you deserve a fabulous holiday/start to the new year.

PS Thanks for the card!

Christmas is the perfect time to take a break, blogging or otherwise. Hopefully we'll be treated to a surprise update with some good news.

Julie said...

Thinking about you guys. If you need a diversion, you know where we live. Hugs to you. Happy Holidays to you. Come on paperwork! Enough already.

P.S. I would love to see some new pics for your precious angel - do email if you can.

Happy Holidays to 2 + 1 very special people!!! I hope that paperwork comes wrapped up in a big red bow when it comes, you need a good suprise :)

Merry Christmas :)

Dianne said...

A break sounds good. (Um, I mean for you... not that *I* want a break from your bloging!) Hope your holiday time is restful and renewing and that the news your longing for comes soon.

Jess said...

Merry Christmas!! And I miss you already...

Sarah said...

I can't wait to see the pic of the long lashes.... :) Have a wonderful holiday!

Have a great Christmas and celebrate the new year as 2010 is the year your dreams will come true.

Stay positive, the imagine group is proof that positive thinking works.

Talk to you in the new year.

Merry Christmas!!!! I will miss your blogging but I have been feeling the same way. You know what "they" say....a change is as good as a rest! So enjoy your break but we will look forward to your return!

Rana, my hope is that you'll get to end your break early because you are just dying to share good news. But, as you take your blog break PLEASE do not take an internet break. I still need my daily dose of encouragement and debriefing!

I'm so glad you have those photos to hang onto and gaze at. My prayers are that he will soon be in your home. (Am I allowed to swear in the same sentence as I talk about praying for you?) This is tougher then I imagined, but I am thankful I've gained you as a friend through it- but couldn't we have become friends even if we had an adoption without delays and obstacles and such??

Rana, I will be thinking of you and your family every day over the holidays. I hope you have a very good Christmas and that your gifts include completed paperwork and a court date.

I'm glad your gorgeous boy is looking healthy and strong (and aren't long beautiful eyelashes on a boy just so unfair?!). And I can't wait until you and Yvan are finally united with him.

Take care.

"Chubberton"? Hee. You are setting the boy up for some bad nicknames, there, Rana.

Hope you have a peaceful holiday season and get the news you are waiting for sooner rather than later!!

Littleone said...

Merry Christmas to you both as well. I was wishing we would have been able to give you an extra special Christmas video, but for now it is looking more like a New Years surprise.

Have a very Merry Christmas!

Connie said...

Hope you have a great Christmas holiday! Hope you have some good news to share soon!

It's so great you got some new photos of your boy! Enjoy them! I would love to see what your little man looks like!

Happy, happy holidays! Rest up, enjoy some time off, and get ready for the new year. 2010 is going to be your best year ever!

Hoping for some good news SOON!!!!
