Besides the overwhelming amount of paperwork before us when we began the process of this second adoption (which has, ironically become our “first” adoption), one of the things we thought about was our friends, and how we would explain this situation, and ask them to pray for us. We have been so blessed to have such sweet, supportive friends during this whole adoption process. I don’t think we would be as sane as we have been without the love, support, and prayers of our friends. Our friends have gone above and beyond for us in their support, and we are so, so grateful for them. Thanks to the Smiths and the Greszlers for everything you guys did to throw us a party, and make it such a HUGE success! And thanks to everyone who came, and to all those who contributed, and for all of your overwhelming support! I don’t think there are words to express how grateful and thankful we are to have friends like you, and we can’t wait for our daughter to meet all of you!
