Adoption and new friendships

I have so many friends from every journey of my life.Whether they are from High School,through adoption,PTA ,Through my children,MA,PA ,Etc they have all supported us on this adoption journey. My Adoption friends will always be dear to my heart.They understand my ups and downs coupled with my craziness. Only they can truly understand how I am feeling. So this post is dedicated to them. To Gail you are the BFAS cheerleader.You seem to take us from an unhappy place to a more pleasant one. I imagine you are the type of person that lights up a room when you walk it. I tend to think of you as the Mama bear of the group. What ever you say has such a calming effect I don't believe we could make it through all the venting without you. Meg you are a wealth of information, you always know whats going on. We made it through the formula scare together and i am so happy we talked on the phone that day. You have had a difficult journey but yet you stand tall and I admire that. Jen you say everything I feel LOL. You have been named the ass kicker of our group but I don't really see it that way you just speak what you are thinking. I remember the day you received your referral I was soooo excited for you. I am soo glad you crossed over to BFAS with me . Kimberly the great list keeper-what can I say without you we would not have a list to obsess over.I think everyone appreciates the work you put into the list for us. Your day is coming soon I just feel it.I think I may cry when you get the call. Kelie who I'm not sure has a blog or at least i can not find it. Thank you for your encouraging words. We only started really talking and I'm happy to get to know you.Theresa words will never be enough of a thank you.Without Theresa I know I would not have survived this process. She is the first person I turn to good or bad news. She knows how to calm me. She is defiantly my adoption BFF buddy LOL. We began this process together and I pray we continue it together(praying we travel together). These ladies will forever be in my heart.I pray everyday for their journeys.I do hope someday we have a chance to meet!!!

AWW!! So sweet! If I am having a bad day Jim says "Have you talked to Dawn yet?" If I say no, he says "maybe you should" LOL!! You have been such a great friend to me. Calming my fears and understanding all the ups and downs of this process. I really don't know what I would do without your friendship!!

We better travel together!! Watch out Ethiopia. :)

P.S It is a good thing we don't live near each other, we would shop till we drop but Gymboree would love us!!

Dawn, what a great post. So happy we have gone on this journey together and can be there for each other. Remembering when we would talk and ask each other if it was a good idea to switch agencies....I think (know) we made a great switch.

Looking forward to seeing Kennedy when you get home in her millions of pictures! Praying for great outcomes to our court dates.

Mama Bear........lol
