What a great day!
On my way over, I got a call from Sherrie. We've known each other for 11 years now. We met because we were both adopting transracially. But turns out our paths were quite entwined. For example, our daughter Kaley was born 11.11.99 and taken to St. Joe's Hospital in Tampa. On 11.18.99 Sherrie's son Jordan was born in that same hospital. Cool part is, Kaley was still there in the nursery at the time. So we know they were there at the same nursery at the same time.
So we spent the day wandering Downtown Disney. Hot but fun!
We drove home and the kids were chatting the whole way. Asking when we would see our new friends again. 11pm and they were tucked into bed.
I muse on the world I'm in ... where there are kids who are of all different races; kids have various special needs; kids come from all over the world; kids were wanted and chosen.
"Adopted" ... one of the BEST words in the world. And I am blessed to be a part of this glorious world.
