Waiting Families Dinner...

Last night, Michele of My Baby Ava, hosted our monthly FCC-AZ Waiting Families group dinner. For those of you who don't know the adoption lingo, this is the Arizona chapter of the Families with Children from China and we are part of the Waiting Families group. Our group gets together monthly at the home of one of the families.

Michele was a wonderful hostess and her home is so warm and inviting. Her mom, Janet, made these adorable beaded bookmarks, complete with a ladybug charm, for each family. They are so cute!

Her dad, Sal, made his top secret recipe biscotti and it was absolutely wonderful!

The presentation was done by Maleesa, who brought her daughter, Zoe, home this past May. Maleesa teaches Baby Signs and spoke about the advantages of using signs with your child. We had fun learning some basic signs, which all seem to be pretty intuitive and it seems a baby really may be able to pick them up.

Michele has some photos posted if you'd like to check them out. Michele, thank you so much for a really nice evening!
