On our way house hunting, we were fortunate to be heading through Birmingham, home to Lifeline, our agency. I couldn’t resist the opportunity to visit with the wonderful Karla Thrasher, head of Lifeline’s China program. I also was thrilled to get the chance to meet Laine from The Ferrill Bunch and her precious family finally in person after emailing for months. We were also joined by Amy, who works with Karla, and between the four of us it was non-stop chatter about kids, China, and SN adoption… three of my favorite subjects 😉 We spent 2 hours over lunch and I could have easily spent 2 more! It was so much fun and thankfully my husband was a good sport and wrangled all the kids while I chattered away. The kids were so cute together, Dalton was smitten with Kimmie and the two of them made fast friends. When it was finally time to go, we insisted on pictures but unfortunately the sun was beating down on us. You can see the poor kiddos don’t have the advantage that Laine and I do: sunglasses!
Thanks so much for hanging out with us for the afternoon Laine, Karla and Amy! It was SO fun… I’d love to do it again sometime soon 🙂
Oh, how fun!!! Isn’t it great to meet people in person that you’ve only known in cyberspace before?? Looks like such a fun time, and how cute are all those kiddos!!!
How awesome is that?!
What a GREAT day!! So glad you all got to meet! That is so wonderful! And it looks like everyone had such a fun time!
Now…you need to work your way up north so that WE can finally meet! 😉
