Well, unfortunately, adoption is no longer an attainable goal for us. Adoption is something Jeffrey and I felt very strong and passionately about, but those are not the only deciding factors. Fortunately, we do have the option to have our own child, but we really wanted a child who was already in this world and was in need of loving parents.
Cara just celebrated her second birthday on December 5, and that was a blast. The bad news is that my camera broke the night before her party, so I do not have any photos yet. She really got into the opening of presents, dressing up, and singing happy birthday to herself.
She is loving the Christmas Tree and lights outside. She has even unwrapped all of her presents under the tree, at least two or three times.
