Happy Holidays

It's been so interesting how so many of the special dates involving Jonas and his adoption have corresponded with holidays. I made a list just to see for myself, so I thought I'd share it here:


  • Jonas's Birthdate-swim with dolphins in New Zealand


  • St. Patrick's Day-submit our first application to the adoption agency
  • Thanksgiving-announce our adoption plans to family
  • Jonas's 2nd Birthday-celebrate with him in the orphanage, five days after meeting him
  • Christmas Eve and Christmas-celebrate with Jonas in the orphanage
  • New Year's Eve-celebrate in Moscow, Russia, the city where Jonas was born


  • Aubree's Birthday-book flights for 2nd visit
  • Valentine's Day-arrive for 2nd visit, celebrate with Jonas in the orphanage

  • Aubree's Late Grandparents/Godparents' Anniversary Date-court date to legally become Jonas's parents
  • St. Patrick's Day-take Jonas out of the orphanage forever

  • Easter-Jonas gets baptized

Holidays, especially St. Patrick's Day, will always hold a special place in our heart when we think of our little Jonas and how he came to be a part of our family!
