Last night we had a wonderful time at a local park visiting with other adoptive and foster families from our monthly support group. Talk about a little glimpse of heaven! Families made up of all colors with our children all running, playing and laughing together. Our friend who runs the group did a great job planning the event besides the picnic food there was face painting, balloons and she even had a professional photographer there to take candid shots and family photos! The evening was extra special for several reasons: celebrating the news of a sweet family who domestic adoption was finalized, foster parents beginning the process to adopt their son, and a sweet surprise right at the beginning another AGCI family we had met several years ago came - one of their daughters was with our son in Ethiopia so that was so sweet to reacquaint them.
Adoption is what we all have in common - physically and spiritually...we get each other!
