Just what I needed

Who's that cute little lady next to me? It's Lyndsey! I was in Victoria last weekend and we met for dinner, wine, and good company - who knew you could talk about adoption for over 3 hours and still have more to say. I love that she (and Kevin) gets it - ALL of it. I love that we are not alone in this lonely process. I love that I finally met this friend.

Not a bad looking bunch I will say.

I know this journey has been hard for you but this post just made me think of how proud I am (and I am sure the rest of our family is) of you for advocating for adoption and for opening up your heart to give others hope and the feeling that they are not alone.

I am proud to know that you are helping others deal with this process and in turn they are able to help you! I am glad that you have found people who understand all your frustration and I am sure they are glad to have you to share theres as well.

You may not realize it but you are making a difference....

I LOVE YOU!!!
Your baby sister,
Michelle

Hey, that's great that you guys met! It's wonderful to beable to talk adoption till your heart's content with somebody who really gets it and not having to worry about boring the other person to death. Adoptive friends are wonderful!

Katie - too bad, I wasn't sure who was on the island - In retro, I should have posted on the blog that I was going - would have loved to have met you too - next time!!

BCMommy - I've never seen you post before? - and it looks like you have a private blog - let me know if you are looking for another follower.

Lyndsey - Hey shrimp, good thing I didn't wear my heals!

Michie - love ya too sis!

It's great to get together with other adoptive parents who get it. Let me know if you're ever in Southern Ontario!

I would have made Lyndsey look TALL. Trust me. I'm only 1 hr out of Vic, on the Island...would have loved Thai, too! :) Looks like you had a great, much needed evening together.

I'm so glad you got to meet up with a fellow adopting friend! I'm sorry I wasn't able to meet up with you in vancouver : (

still thinking and hoping and praying for all sorts of paperwork to come through and for the phone to RING!

Wish I could have been there... Next trip Ottawa (or Vegas).
