Zoo, Gymnastics, Life Book
So I sped (yes, illegally) all the way to Tulsa. I was 'graced' with a very nice set of pace cars all the way there. I got there exactly at 7pm. Woo hoo!
The other families that were there each were different, and each of us were in different places in the journey of adoption. We were right in the middle. That was a good place for me to be. I felt I learned a lot. I have questions. I had questions that were answered...honestly. Sometimes that was scary to hear. But at the very same time, it was good. I felt love in the room like I haven't experienced in that way before. I felt a connection to people I had NEVER even met. I loved it. I am excited to go to the next one. I was invited to come as a volunteer to the Birthmom meetings which happen each Tuesday. I do believe I will be trying very hard to get to one of those soon.
Cheryl said our Life Book would begin to be shown immediately and that there are currently 22 on hand. Who knows how many girls will come through the agency, or drop in to the hospitals in the next few weeks and months, but if you'd join with me in praying for all of them, and specifically for the one that will be a part of our lives forever, I'd much appreciate that!
God is good.
