Message from Adoption Australia:

Well hasn’t winter made its presence known! For every person who embraces the cooler change, enjoys the ambience of a fire place and eagerly looks forward to a season of skiing—there are those of us who “celebrate” winter by vacating to the warmer parts of the world for a holiday! For my family, this is the time of year that we love to incorporate a trip to Thailand, to celebrate our son’s heritage, to escape the Canberra winter and to enjoy time together as a family.
