Time Flies When Your Having Fun!!

Happy 3rd Birthday!!

Christopher John March 30, 2009


I love you Christopher!!



Wow! Where does time go? It seems like it was just our Family Day and now it is April. Well we have been very busy here in the Christian household. Christopher is loving school and has made so many friends. He will be graduating into the 3 year old room in June. During this time my prince has turned 3 years old. He had a party in school with his friends and had a blast. It was great seeing him play with the other chrildren. He has a little girlfirend who he always seems to get in trouble with. It's all innocent! Christopher's birthday theme was Elmo this year. He is really into Elmo and dinosaurs. He is always yelling"MO" for Elmo. He is such a joy to have. I enjoy every minute I have with him. We got some bad news that I won't have a job next year due to budget cuts. I have faith in God that everything happens for a reason and it will work out in the end. This week I am on Spring Break and I get to spend alot of time with Christopher. I am really enjoying the time with him. We are getting very excited about the Easter Bunny coming!

Happy Second Family Day!!!

I can't believe how fast time flies. Today we celebrate our Second Family Day. This is a day that I will never forget, the day my family was complete. Christopher is growing into a beautiful little boy. He has a great personality and a smile that will brighten any room. This little boy is the reason for my existence. He gives me the strength to climb the mountains. I wish I had half of his energy. The last year you could see how much he has grown and broken out of his shell. He has started to develop friendships and explore new things. I remember two years ago when he was placed in my arms, I knew at that moment all my prayers had been answered. My life would be so INCOMPLETE without him.
Christopher, my hope and prayer for you is that you always reach for the stars and always believe in miracles. Miracles do happen you are proof of that! Thank you for showing me the meaning of unconditional love. I love you Christopher John until the end of time.

Reflections On My Life

As we approach the New Year I reflect this time of year on my life. I think about how lucky I am to have Christopher in my life. This was his second Christmas home and my life is complete now. I also think about what led us to the journey of adoption and the pain and sacrafice adopting caused at the time, and then I see the reward of being Christopher's mom. I would go through every single bit of that pain again to be his mother. As the New Year approaches I am reminded of the blessings that I have a wonderful husband and son, and parents that love me. Their love is the wind that pushes and guides me everyday of my life. I never knew how completely I could love and never knew just how BLESSED I would be to be CJ's mommy. CJ's is the beat in my heart. His love gives me the strength to accomplish anything in this world. There was a time that I thought I would never be a mom, and it made me a bitter person. Then I realized God had a special plan for Brian & I. With time my angel from above was sent to us. Christopher is the best gift I ever received.The feeling I get when he hugs and kisses no money could ever replace. I will always remember the longing I felt to hold him and the pain we felt during the adoption. This is a road that I would travel again in a heartbeat to get my greatest gift.
So as I think about the last year which was not an easy year for my family, Iam thankful that we made the journey together as a family. Without family I would not have been able to achieve my goals. I do not know what 2009 has in store for us, but I do know that with Brian and CJ we can accomplish anything.
Happy and Healthy New Year to all!!!!!

Christmas 2008

Riding in my new car with Daddy!

My special gift from Santa. I must have been a good boy!!

I'm all ready for Santa in my special Christmas pj's.


This was CJ's second Christmas home with us and Santa was very good to him. We started off a little grumpy because CJ didn't sleep well the night before. After laying in bed for another thirty minutes things turned out great. He wanted the Cadillac Escalade and Santa brought it. Once he got in the car he wouldn't get out. He stepped on the gas and almost knocked the tree down. I couldn't laugh harder.He was sooo happy and my Christmas was made. The Handy Manny tool set was another hit he loved it and won't put it down.






Santa was good to me too I got the Flip video camera because I like to video CJ. Brian got the Wii and I have been using that too. We both are doing the Wii fit and it gives you a good workout.






I wish everyone a Happy New Year!!

Christmas Time At The Christians

I can't believe he is wearing the hat. He use to cry when you put it on
him.

He was our attempt to see Santa.

CJ is telling Santa want he wants for Christmas.


My two special guys. I love them both so much!



My Little Yankee!




Our house is almost ready for Santa to appear. It is a very exciting time here in our home this year. Last weekend we decorated the lawn, put the lights around the house, and the Christmas village up inside. Christopher is really understanding more this year. Every night when we put the lights on he puts his hand over his mouth and and takes a deep breath. When you tell him that Santa is coming he claps his hands. We tried to take a picture with Santa last week but that didn't work out to well. Christopher was really afraid and I had to get into the picture, but we did tell Santa what we wanted this year. Christopher is really into dinosaurs and trains this year. We are going to put the tree up this weekend and we decided to try the train set that Uncle Lou bought him. We will see how that goes hopefully Brian has enough patience to do it.










I am really excited this year. I cannot wait to see CJ's expression on Christopher morning.

National Adoption Day!

Christopher John in 2008

A family completed.

Love a first sight. The day our journey began.


Today is National Adoption Day and as all you know my family was completed by adoption. My son Christopher was one of the lucky ones who found a family to love him, but there are so many children out there who are still waiting. I ask that you pray that they find a family to love them.






I found this poem to honor this special day.



Author: Terri Harrison






Longing for a child to love,



I'd wish upon a star above.



In my heart I always knew,



a part of me was meant for you.



I think how happy we will be



once I adopt you and you adopt me.






I dream of all the joy you'll bring,



imagining even the littlest things.



The way it will feel to hold you tight,



and tuck you in every night.






The drawings on the refrigerator door,



childhood toys across the floor.



The favorite stories read again and again,



house of games with make-believe friends.






The day you took my outstreched hand,



a journey ended but our lives began.



Still mesmerized by your sweet face,



still warmed inside by our first embarce.






I promised to give you a happy home,



a loving family all your own.



A house you've now made complete,



with laughter, smiles and tiny feet,






A parent is one who guides the way,



know I will be there everyday.



Rest easy as each night you sleep,



a lifetime of love is yours to keep.






This poem sum up exactly the emotions you feel when you are going through an adoption. I remember that first embarce with CJ and the joy my heart felt. Christopher is my world and my reason for existing. I thank the special angel that send him to my heart.






I love you Christopher John with every beat of my heart!!!!!
