Who Knew??

Did you ever think that by starting a blog that you would:

* Share a similar journey with so many people?

* Make friends?

* Help another family make their adoption dream come true?

* Share the most mundane parts of your life and get comments?

* Use Bloglines to manage all the blogs that you follow?

* Meet your "cyber" friends for dinner in "real life"?

* Shed tears? Both happy and sad ones.

* Have people miss you when you take a blogger break?

* Never be able to survive the wait without your blog?

* Have posts running around in your head?

* Be referred to as "one of mommy's blogger friends"

* Help your daughter connect with other little girls just like her!

Is that what Hannah calls us? Mommy's blogger friends. Funny.

And no I never imagined all this. Speaking of which... I miss you guys. We need to talk soon. Been too long.

Thank goodness for this, though. I don't know how I would have gotten through this journey without it and all of you!!

I never imagined HALF of what this last couple of years has brought! But, of course, in all the best ways.

Oh, and I voted for Sophie. That pic is adorable. :-)

Colleen said...

Great post and all so true!

Hope you guys come up again this year!! Miss you!

Rebecca said...

Yes it IS AMAZING!!!!

Funny how, when something happens, one of my first thoughts is, "I have to blog about that"!!!!

And I now have a new category of friends, too: "bloggy friends".

What a wonderful world we live in. :)
