Designforadoption would like to wish everyone a happy and prosperous 2012! We would also like to take this moment to thank all of you for your continued support in 2011. Your support has provided so much encouragement for us along this long winding journey to adoption and your generous donations have helped to remove many of the financial hurdles along the way. This adoption journey has opened our eyes to a world of experiences we would have never experienced otherwise. We are praying that in 2012 we will finally be matched with a child and we look forward to the day when we can finally announce with much enthusiasm that we have been matched! This past year has seen its ups and downs. In 2011, we were presented 6 different potential birth families, three of them did not select us, one selected us then changed her mind about adoption, one disappeared without selecting anyone, and we had to decline one, because of too much drug exposure. It has been heartbreaking at times, but with the support of family and friends, we have been able to move forward and remain hopeful.

We wish everyone a New Year full of hope and new and exciting adventures. We look forward to sharing our journey in the new year and meeting as many exciting people as we did this year.

Our sincerest Thanks for being a part of our journey in 2011.
