Yesterday was awesome. After I got home, I slept from 830-10am. Then I got ready and headed up 575 to invite meet some new friends. I was invited to lunch with some ladies involved in Chinese adoption. Some already had their babies and some were sooo close to a referral. I had no idea who would be there, but most of them had blogs I have been reading for months now! These ladies answered a lot of questions for me and it was really nice. I finally got to meet Maisie which was a huge surprise. I have been reading her blog since before her mommy and daddy got their referral! There were 2 Lisa's there. One Lisa is a frequent commenter on this blog and I did not realize it until I got home. She has been such a positive influence. She will be getting her referral very soon and I can not wait. The hostess is also close to getting her referral and I am thrilled for her. I was able to see the toy room and the nursery. This was the first time I have talked to ladies so far in the process. It was nice to the nursery and the other Chinese items she has in her room.. I was so motivated when I left. I really hope I see these ladies again and I hope they don't judge me based on my sleep deprived state yesterday!!!
After lunch, I came home and rested for another few hours. I got up and picked up Lucy the basset hound from doggie day care and dropped her off. Then I proceeded to head to Carrabas to have lunch with Laura, another future mommy who is very close to us in the adoption process. It was wonderful to have some girl time and to get to know each other. She is such an encouragement!!!
