Waiting families get together...

Last night was our monthly FCC-Arizona Waiting Families meeting. It was hosted by Megan and Scott and their beautiful daughter, Maya, who has been home for four months now. It seems like we had record high attendance at the meeting and several babies, which is always fun. There was also a family there who just got their referral with the June batch and brought along their photos and info on Fiona to share.

After the meeting, a group of us got together at Rock Bottom Brewery to hang out for a while (click on the smaller photos to see a larger version).
Front left are Nancy & Brian (who were LID in late August '05), next to them are Heather & Damon (who are paperchasing and hoping to be DTC in September), then Kim & Scott (who were LID in late July '05). Joe and I are in the back row along with Michele (who was LID in late September '05).

Here's a shot of Joe and Damon (Heather and I didn't make it into this one)...

and Nancy & Brian.


Here's all the very excited mommas to be:

Nancy, me, Michele, Heather, and Kim. It's been a great experience getting to know these wonderful ladies and sharing this journey with them. I hope we continue to be friends and get to know each other better throughout our adoption journey.

That is so cool. I would love to get together with other families like that. So far I have not met anyone locally but I am still hopeful:o).

It looks like we either have a nice pregnancy glow or we're really sweating. I choose the glow. :D

It's great to have friends that can and do truly share in each others joy. Awesome!
