So this afternoon (Saturday) Amy is sleeping as she got in from her second of three days working in a row. I had some time to kill, so I went to Winston's to play cards. When I got there I found out the tables would all be in the smoking section today, so I went in to non-smoking to eat my lunch.
There were only 2 or 3 tables active, but one had a couple with two girls and when the mom was passing my table I asked if the girls were from China and explained my interest being based in our adoption journey. I was right and I got to meet Mike and Molly and their daughters Eve and Janie Grace (I hope I got the younger daughter's name right).
They are not originally from Atlanta, having been in TX and OK before, so I told them about and invited them to First Fridays and exchanged business cards so we could be in touch. I love the joy that comes with meeting fellow China families and being part of such a special community.
On another small world note, I was playing cards at a friend's house last night and discovered that one of the guys I know from Randy's game is the ex-step-father of a high school classmate of mine. In fact, Ken, his ex-wife, and Kelly lived FIVE houses down the street from us for about 7 years back in the 80's. Pretty cool, except he has no contact with Kelly or her mom, so no way to say hi or anything.
