A Wonderful Gift!

I have a post up today on Casablanca Authors (just click on the title of this post to go there) about gifts. Plus we are giving away books, including a copy of The Treasures of Venice. Hope you can stop by and leave a comment.

However, I can't resist posting the picture of my niece, her hubby, and her baby boy here too. I know I may be just a wee bit biased, but I think they are the most adorable little family EVER!

My niece and hubby (a man of impeccable taste who absolutely LOVED The Wild Sight) tried for ten years to have a baby on their own. After endless rounds of testing by numerous different doctors, they were finally told that my niece had a genetic condition that left her sterile. So at the beginning of the year, they decided to try the adoption route.

Knowing that it could take several years for them to accomplish their hearts' desires -- an infant -- they settled in for a long wait. Imagine their joy and surprise when they received a call in June that a newborn baby boy was waiting for them!

They had a crib and not much else, so they ran out and bought some blue 'onesies', then stopped at my other niece's house to borrow a car seat to bring their new son home!

This will be little Aiden's first Christmas (pictured above on his first Thanksgiving) and a VERY SPECIAL HOLIDAY for everyone in our family!

HAPPY HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL OF YOU!

MAY THE NEW YEAR BE FILLED WITH JOY AND PROSPERITY FOR ALL!

Thanx Helen!

My niece is actually a pre-school teacher so she really LOVES the little ones, which made Aiden even more special if that's possible! :-)

What a wonderful story! And I'm guessing they like the Raiders? LOL! He's adorable and they do look like the perfect little family. Happy Holidays to you and your entire family. And here's to a great 2010!

Hi Jane,
Hope you are staying warm there in COLD ole NYC!

I'm sure little Aiden made quite a haul. I spent a nice quiet Christmas here at home and am eagerly looking forward to the New Year!

LOL!
Yes, TerriO, my nephew-in-law is a HUGE Raiders fan, and that takes a lot of nerve this season. :-P

Here's to a WONDERFUL NEW YEAR and NEW DECADE!!!
