New Friends!!

This journey has lead me down some interesting paths. Way back during the wait I was involved (and still am now) with Rumor Queen which is an online China Adoption site. I loved and still love that site as it was the one thing that really got me through the wait. I have met a ton of wonderful people through Rumor Queen but one lady- Susan (ladyesquirre- for those of you who are on RQ) in particular was very close to me-- literally- she lives in the same city about 2 miles from me. She followed our whole wait and rejoiced with us when we got Mia. Strangely, through this whole journey, we have never met in person. I'm not 100% sure why, but we just never connected in person. About a month ago Susan returned from China with her amazingly beautiful, smart, adorable little girl Georgiana. She is perfect and on Tuesday we had the opportunity to finally meet in person over lunch at The Cheesecake Factory. Susan and I totally clicked and we have so many similarities in all aspects of our lives but also the girls enjoyed themselves. While Mia is a bit older than Georgie, they still enjoyed each others company. I am so looking forward to other play dates with Susan and Georgie!!

Our Little Girls!!

Georgie has a sweet adorable personality and is so eager to smile!!

There's that little toothy grin!!
We had a wonderful time together!!

  10. Hi Christy,

    I wanted to take moment to say that I have been a faithful viewer of your family's blog since before Mia arrived. You have given me hope, encouragement,and many lessons have been learned from you as well. After a 3 year wait for our little girl in China, we received her referral yesterday. I wanted to share our joy with you, since you have brought me so much joy while I patiently waited for our little sweet pea. Please check out our website, if you get a chance. Just know you have been such an inspiration!
