Last night I attended the First Friday gathering in north Atlanta. It is a group of parents who are considering, are in process of or have competed an adoption from China. What a blessing to spend time with others who know what we're going through. There were people in all stages of the process. It was great to talk to people who've been to China and returned with their child. And to talk to people who are waiting, just like us.
There was a couple there who just got their referral (they were matched with a baby from China). They had the cutest little "mug shot" of their baby. Their LID was 8/10/05, exactly one year before ours. That could be us in a year. Wow.
