I was really sad not to have Ramya with us, I do have to admit. Her gifts sat unopened under the tree and it made me sad every time I saw them. In October, when we heard our court process was done, was thought for sure we would have her home by Christmas, and were thinking it would even be much sooner than that. In hindsight, we weren't ready (still just getting the room done), and it would have made things crazy, but hey, I like crazy ;)! I know God's timing will be perfect and that we will soon have her in our arms, and that is what is important.
So without further-ado, here are some photos from our Christmas extravaganza!
