Just Plain Fun!

Last week I finally got to meet a friend of mine, Adeye, that I have only known through blog land for the past 18 months. When I discovered her blog, she was the adoptive mom of 2 and pursuing 1 more little girl in the Ukraine. I gleaned and gleaned from her godly wisdom and exhortation. I was bolstered by her courage. I had so much fun getting to know her from afar. Then, as God would have it, my real life girlfriend , Kristin, and her husband, decided to adopt through the same ministry and country as Adeye  and they were able to meet in person this past winter. Fast forward 6 months....
Now that the adopted little ones are all home, Kristin and I made the trek north and Adeye made the trek south and we were able to meet , the 3 of us and our 15 children, just over the Virginia state line. I have no more words so I will just let the photos tell the story.

What a fun adventure for you guys.
Such beautiful photos of all your precious children, I wish I could have been there to hang out with all of you. What a blessing to be able to meet such amazing families through the blogworld!

Great job photo-shopping the sweat off our brows-whew was it hot! BUT FUN!!!

Can't wait for the next park date!
(In 76 more days that is-tee hee!)


Adeye said...

Oh you are sooooo sweet! The pics are STUNNING!!!! Absolutely amazing.

Ummmm....about that business??????

I love you, friend.

Glad you (& ALL or at least lots of the kids! ;-) were able to get together!! But, so sorry to read Kristin's heat comment b/c I was looking at those photos thinking I sure hope that was one of the rare cooler low humidty days. Oh well, should be much better in 76 days!! :-)

P.S. I'd not been on Adey's blog since she made it back safely with her 2 girls--they look so beautiful & what a day to night change in expressions now that they're with their Mom & family--yeah!! Great pic of 1 of hers & Lydia! (now I know they're probably thinking, "Now, what did our Moms say again about why we're all out here in this heat when we now live in the land of air-conditioning?!?"

It's so neat to hear how you all met! What a blessing to have each other as you raise your beautiful families.

Your photos are wonderful! You perfectly captured a very special day. (And I didn't see one bead of sweat!)

Much Love,

Sounds like it was a great day! What sweet little angels the girls were together :)

So, how's the horse coming along?

I hear you're a pretty darn good trainer ;)
