Merry Christmas To Our Forever Family

Ashton McGregor


Isabel McGregor

There is a good chance that our baby is born. Baby Ashton/Isabel could be breathing the same air we woke up to this morning. I can't even begin to describe the feeling knowing that it's possible that s/he's a part of Earth right now, but even harder is the realization that the chances are that hunger and cries for needed attention are part of everyday life. Not just for the child, but for the birth parents as well who need the same nourishment, love, and attention to guide them through what is certain to be one of the most difficult times in their lives. We are here, and we await the great challenge of parenting baby Ashton/Isabel through the grandest of lives.

I awoke this morning (after filling the Christmas stockings full to the brim!) to a glorious Christmas service on the television announcing Christ is born! And then I checked my e-mails and found a Christmas update from the McGregors - our family! And I too say a tear filled Merry Christmas Ashton/Isabel. Wherever you are right now may God fill those around you with so much love and compassion that you (and those who are with you) feel His arms encircleing you with safety and give you peace on this very special day and always. We love you and can't wait for what next Christmas will bring for us all! Gamma and Papa
Oh, and mommy and Christmas memory and blessing that I will be sharing a little later today comes straight from you! Couldn't resist a nice little hint! :) Love you...
