Meeting another friend





Momma and Ana Claire ready to celebrate the 4th.

During our time of waiting for our referral for Ana Claire I had the pleasure of getting to know other waiting moms to be through our DTC support group. When we brought our children home it was nice to talk to these women that were experiencing some of the ups and downs, the good and bad that we were. I finally had the privilage of meeting one of the moms that I have talked to on the phone and through emails for four years. Kim and her family were on their way to the beach and stopped in our town over night. We only had a couple of hours, but it was so nice. It was like meeting an old friend. We just started talking like we had seen each other yesterday.
She has two beautiful girls as you can see from the photos above. Ana Claire took several of the photos above. I think she did pretty well.

What a great photographer! I love the close of you both and the one of her doing the upside down peace sign. She is precious!

Oh, funny! The 2 pictures that Nicole mention are also my favorites!! My teenage daughter would love the upside down peace picture. : )

How nice that you were able to meet one of your on-line DTC friends!! The friendships we make on the journey to our children are so very special!!!

Lisa, I think you look so pretty with a baby on your lap :) That is so much fun to get to meet someone in person who you already "know". I am looking forward to a few of those myself!

Isn't it nice meeting cyber DTC friends in person? BTW...the song I Can Only Imagine played non-stop while before we traveled to China. It always made me wonder how I would feel to actually meet my daughter in person and still brings tears to my eyes today when I hear it.
