Summer fun...

In my last post I mentioned that we were having a family over for a bbq on the 6th. Well, we did and it went great. I met Amy about 2.5 years ago on B.aby C.enter's adoption boards. We only lived a half hour from each so we agreed to meet in person. We hit it off right away and have since gotten together several times. This past weekend we had them over for dinner. We had a great meal and wonderful conversation. It's funny because our husbands are the same age, having been born on the same day. And they act very much alike as do Amy and I....lol. We just have a lot in common, it's a blessing to have such wonderful friends who truly understand where we have been and where we are heading on this journey. Our families are rich and full of life all made possible by adoption.
In August we are planning to go camping together. I hope it all works out, maybe it'll become an annual tradition. Here are a few pictures from Sunday.

Visit with E and new baby!!!

We are so lucky! We were in Pennsylvania a couple of weekends ago and were able to visit with E and her hubby T and new baby G. We had such a great time. Hopefully we will be able to all get together next spring in AZ! I never imagined that I would meet potential life long friends online. But through our common bond of IF and now adoption it's no wonder!

Here is a picture of E and I. E has a blog too...it's, Waiting for Baby: Our Adoption Journey Chronicles
What miracles our children are! I'm especially happy for E b/c we 'met' right before we were approved to adopt. She had alittle longer wait than us but it was totally worth it. G (her new daughter) is absolutely adorable. I can't wait to watch them grow as a family!

I'm realizing that E hasn't even posted pics of her baby girl on her blog but I can't help it.I know she has been adjusting to motherhood therefore she hasn't been blogging a whole lot, so sorry E!

The ride from A's aunt's house in Philly to E's house was only about 20 minutes. G managed to fall asleep, it's funny b/c from NY to Philly he was wide wake. I was hoping he would have slept then so he would be nice and fresh. When we arrived at E's house G stayed asleep for about an hour. But oh my gosh, when he woke up he was so grumpy. I'm telling you driving from MI to NY to Philly was very long for him. I would not do it again. Anyhow, here is my baby sleeping in the car peacefully.

On the 6th we are having a couple whom adopted over for a bbq. I met Amy about 2.5 years ago on an adoption support group. Since then we've gotten together a few times. It's always great to see her and her family. So I'm sure more pictures are soon to come!
