Adoptive Bloggy Friends

This morning the boys and I had the GREAT PLEASURE of meeting some friends that I feel like I have known for 2 years or more! Funny thing is, we've never met in person until today. We were connected through some mutual friends and began reading one another's blogs as we both traveled down this amazing road of adoption. So for 2 years, we've read each other's blogs, and in a way, felt like friends. So today, as I drove to our meeting place, there were no butterflies or any sort of nervousness. I felt as though I was driving to meet a friend. And I was. But being that it was our first encounter, it should have felt differently. But it didn't. Blogs are amazing like that. :) And when you share the commonalities that Angela and I share, I guess it removes all need for butterflies. So we met at the park, where surprisingly there was no playground. And it was a chilly 52 degrees and windy. So, quick change of plans. We moved to a close by Chick-Fil-A. We talked about adoption (past, present and future), our busy boys and church. And the boys played as best they could. Pax and Rylin are still a little young to really get excited about a Chick-Fil-A play place. And I snapped one picture of our stud muffins. :)
What a blessing this morning was for me! And I hope some of these playdates will bless my boys as they grow older. Angela and Rylin, thanks for sharing your morning with us. We're looking forward to the next one!
