Rebecca's new friend

It's so cool how adoption brings people together. Adoptive moms just have to look a little bit more to find each other. We talk about adoption stories instead of birth stories, so it's really no different than what other moms do! Rebecca and I met Angie and her newly adopted daughter, Danni, yesterday for lunch. Danni is 6 1/2 years old and was adopted from China in November! (Rebecca is almost 7 and was adopted in September.) Danni was very shy around us initially, but Rebecca and she had a great time together once they got in the playground!! Angie and I spent our time "comparing notes."

Rebecca and Danni
Don't you just love Danni's pink sunglasses?! She also had very long, thick hair pulled back in a ponytail!! (Guess her orphanage didn't scalp their kids! LOL)

What fun! Whenever I get around other adoptive moms I just feel like a sponge, taking in all their wisdom and experience. It is so refreshing!
Maybe one day soon we will get to meet and I can 'sponge' off you! ;)
