It was a very nice weekend

I had a truly lovely weekend. On Saturday, Marc's cousin Brittany was Bat Mitvah'd so we attended the service in the morning and then partied in the evening. Marc entertained at the event. Most of his cousin's want him to entertain at their children's parties. He loves to do it as he adores his family. I sat with all of the cousins and had a really good time talking and dancing with them. I even got to meet a couple of relatives that I had not met before. I enjoyed the evening immensely!

Today was my good friend Shannon's shower. She is a wonderful person and I finally got an opportunity to meet her awesome family. They were so warm and welcoming and truly make you feel a part of the family. A couple of other new friends from our adoption support group were there and it was wonderful talking to them as well. At the end of the gift opening portion of the shower, Shannon took the opportunity to thank and acknowledge many family and friends that are significant in her life. Well let me tell you there was not a dry eye in the house so the tissue was being passed around fast and furious. I was already a mess when she started and when she spoke about our friendship and the friendship that our daughters will share I lost it....All I have to say is that there is good crying and bad crying and that fell into the good category. Shannon and family...I love you guys!

The referrals came out through the 4/14 LID last week. Shannon and Allen are next as they are 4/27 and then we are in the following group. We have much to look forward to in the next 2-3 months.

Oh man I would have been bawling my eyes out at that shower! Shannon sounds like a sweetie and that's so cool that she's up for referrals next.

Glad you had a great weekend!
