Blogiversary!

I just realized that my blog turned one year old yesterday! When I started this basic little site I never would have guessed that a year later I would have over 20,000 hits and visitors from around the world. Just today I had hits from Australia, South Africa, Canada, Vietnam, Norway, France, Germany, as well as from across the United States. I know as far as blogs go that’s not very remarkable, but it has far exceeded my expectations. At first I wasn’t sure if anyone other than my mother and cousin Gail would be reading, and I was certain that everyone would stop once our adoption was complete. I’m glad that I was wrong, because it’s fun to have a place to share all my joys and frustrations, and perhaps encourage others along the way. God is so good and I’m grateful to Him for the strange little gift called blogging! And of course, thanks are due to you, my readers, for giving me a reason to write!

I hope you're printing out all these original thoughts--if not, I'm going to and make millions by having them published!!
Love, Mom

I have no doubt that you are far more intelligent than me and much more than I deserve in a wife. If by chance I forget this, all I need to do is read your blog and I am quickly reminded of the incredible, beautiful, tender, kind, thoughtful, sometimes humorous, loving, passionate mother, and amazing wife God has blessed me with. Thanks for taking the time to document our adventures.
Love,
Dan
