This month began with the birthday of a new year, 2019! The festivities continued with Epiphany as we celebrated the coming of the Christchild to the Gentile world. Two birthdays and placement anniversaries filled us with joy & thanksgiving followed.

We spent wonderful moments together, exchanged small gifts and enjoyed delicious food. During these special times, it is difficult to be so far away from immediate family but video chatting continues to keep us connected on a regular basis. Our new friends in Alaska fill in the gaps with lots of love and laughter.
