It was a very nice day

Today was very cool. Pam Eidson, the woman who compiled our dossier came to South Florida to do an adoption workshop for our adoption agency. We wanted to finally get a chance to meet her; so we attended the workshop and made plans to have lunch with her afterwards. It turned out to be such a nice day because in addition to getting to meet Pam we also got to meet some other waiting families in our area. We decided with the help of our social worker, Donna Bradley, who was also at lunch that we would start a waiting families support group in South Florida. Donna will send us info on how to start one. If today was any indication; then having such a group to belong to will be awesome. When you are in the process of adopting internationally it is so great to meet people who truly understand what you are feeling. It will be great to come home from China and have a group of friends that have children that are from the same place as Katie.

Hi! Found your site via the Baby Shanahan blog. Congrats on being DTC--that's wonderful!!! We're still waiting for our i171-H, but will be there soon (fingers crossed). Will be bookmarking your site and following the journey. Take care.

Lori & Marc,
Aunt Shirley & Uncle Paul were delighted to hear about the upcoming adoption of "Katie Starr", especially since there have been no baby girls in the Weinstock family for many years. All boys, of course we love them very much, but looking forward to a girl, finally!
Our only regret is that we live so far away, we have to rely on e-mails and photos to get to know our new niece.
