A Few Special Things about this Weekend....

One of the greatest things about this adoption journey is the people we have met along the way - couples who have already adopted their kiddos from Ethiopia and couples who are at the same point of the journey as we are.
These couples are a wealth of knowledge, they encourage each other and know all the emotions that go along with infertility and adoption. We feel really blessed to have met so many great people here in the OKC area....
Last night we had dinner with two couples (we literally only knew each other from our blogs). Kathleen and I had lunch last weekend and we had a blast. We decided this weekend we would get together for dinner with our husbands. We ran across Matt and Sarah's blog and decided to invite them to join us. I am so glad we did. We had the BEST time...we had a 2 1/2 hour dinner full of laughter and heartfelt conversation about our adoptions and Ethiopia. Here are a couple of photos from last night....
 The future mommy's - Sarah, Me and Kathleen
The future dad's - Clint, John and Matt

We can't wait to get all of our kiddos home and have play dates! We also can't wait to get together with these awesome couples again....

When I got home last night, I had an e-mail that included this photo of the artwork that we will hang in our nursery!

I am SO excited....Isn't it the cutest thing you have ever seen?? Thanks Joely!!!
