The End of an Era


Last night was our monthly First Friday adoption journey group. It's a groups of people who have, are or are considering adopting from China. It has been the most amazing experience. It's the place where this adoption feels real. There's no having to explain why it's taking so long or what LID means.

The place was crawling (or rather scampering) with adopted and bio children. We got to meet Laney and Sheridan both of whom recently joined their parents. We caught up on the lives of those who have been back for a while and celebrated the journeys of prospective parents. We were able to visit with the little angel who has opened my heart to a waiting child.

We have been meeting in the home of Dan and Susan who have adopted once from China and are logged in for another child. Beginning next month we will be moving to North Metro Church. If you are in the Metro Atlanta area, you should consider joining us on the First Friday in October.
