Thank you everyone
Once again I have to thank you all for all your kind words and support. Most days I am now doing better, but then you get a holiday or a special occasion and I'm back at square one. As Michelle reminded me "they" say all the firsts are the hardest to get through. I hope next year is a bit better because I'm not sure I can handle this every year.
I am very fortunate to have found some amazing women through this crazy world of International Adoption. On Saturday night I had the honour of meeting even more mommies in waiting and some mommies that have returned home with their babies this year. A very large group of amazing women got together at the Pickle Barrel for a great evening of food and talk. There were of course those that I've met before, Michelle, Kathy, Rhonda, Cari and Nicole. I got meet Catherine, Jill, Beth, Liz, and many, many others. Nicole got to show off pictures of her adorable Z. I can't wait til she travels to get him so we can go visit.
Jill gave everyone a a little tin can containing white tea and a fortune cookie. My fortune was "You will soon choose between two jobs"...interesting. From Liz and Ava we received the cutest little ladybug shaped tupperware. There was also a gift exchange where we drew numbers and got one from the pile. I drew number one and got the cutest pj's and found out later that it was from Kathy, kind of appropriate I think that I ended up with that one.
**I would've taken a picture but our battery died and I've been too lazy to plug it in. I'll get it charged tonight and edit this post when I take the picture.**
It was a lot of fun getting together with everyone. I'm glad I was FINALLY able to make it (it had always been one thing or another before that prevented me from attending). I can't wait until the next dinner in July!
