So late posting this, but ok hey happy new year!
2011 was crazy huge, for many many reasons. But my favorite thing that made this year so fabulous was the fact that this little guy officially moved to the states to become a Fortner. The Lord is still continuing to do mountain-moving things because of this, in Max's heart, in the rest of my family, and in our home church in Longview. My parents have been asked to join a newly formed 'Pro Life' committee at Mobberly, and I am so excited that the church is being made more and more aware of adoption as an unsolved problem. But really, what's even better is that this awareness is leading to thoughts and prayers, which are leading to conversations, which are leading to action. Can't wait to see where He's going to lead different families in the future. Praying for the kids that are still waiting for families like these to step up and invite these precious faces to be a part of their home.
Here's to 2012, and all the new friendships, opportunities, and blessings that I know it will bring.
