2016 is here!

I love a fresh start. I also love even numbers. Even number have been significant for me:

2010: Meet/begin dating Jason
2012: Get Married
2014: Start working in nonprofit sector

I also like even numbered years because elections fall on those year and I'm just weird like that. 

This year we are starting over (sorta) on a new waiting list with a new adoption agency (read the update here before you freak out). I've also been at my new job for about three months, which is the perfect amount of time to get settled and learn and now I'm ready to really get going on a lot of really exciting things. 

Of course every year we hope that it'll be the year that we get to meet Judah, and even bring hime home. We've come to a place where we always say "maybe" but it will happen and there's no reason it's not this year! 

Just like last year, I have some goals for the year, things I want to focus a little more attention on. To read about my 2015 goals, you can visit them here, and the "results" here.
