Our First Get-Together

We had a great weekend. On Saturday we drove up to Dallas for the DFW Ethiopia adoption group get-together. We finally met the Meyers face to face. Gabre and Gabi loved each other. It was really great to meet them after all we have been through together. Our adoptions were on the exact same timeline and we helped each other through all the ups and downs.
We also got to meet the Boyds. Amber and I have become good blog buddies. They are such gracious people. They even offered to let us stay at their home and we took them up on their offer. They welcomed us like old friends, I hope to see ourselves as old friends one day. They are really wonderful people and I cannot wait to rejoice with them when they get their referral. They are going to make one baby girl very lucky to have them as her parents.
We also met many other families in all stages of the adoption process. We plan to go to many more monthly get-togethers.

Here are a few pictures from our fun weekend.
