Are you going through international adoption and you have your child’s picture on your fridge? Not that you need it because you have his/her image burned into your memory. How do you handle being apart at the holidays? One way is to say a special prayer before your Christmas dinner, another is to wrap a gift for him/her and save it for when they come home. Make an ornament for the child with his/her picture on it and hang it on the tree. When they are older they will be excited every year to put that ornament on the tree. They will love to hear stories about what you did the Christmas you were apart. Pray that they are safe and being taken care of and that the time will pass quickly until you can be together as a whole family.
