We also had some really exciting news this year. Cole was finally able to adopt Aerianna. She is so unbelieveable mature for her age. She was able to get the ball rolling in the hole process. She asked Jon herself if he would be willing to do this for her. Much to our surprise he said yes. He lives far away and he feels that this would be in her best interest as well. He knows that Cole loves this little girl and would do anything for her. We are so thankful that he did. Aerianna now feels our family is now complete and she is so happy to finally be a "Beard" like the rest of her family. The adoption was finalized on Oct. 13, 2009.
We had a great Christmas and New Years celebrating with Family. We are all doing well and are healthy. The kids are getting so big. We have so much to look forward to this year.
