Thankful in November

Day 1: I would like to do a short post each day this month stating something I am thankful for.
I am incredibly thankful for this little guy. He has brought so much joy to our lives since we found out we were going to have him back on December 5, 2010. His smiles bring so much life and light to our hearts. Since he entered our lives I have felt so much joy, and I pray daily for our dear friends that so long to have a little one of their own. I pray God blesses you with a little perfect miracle.
