Where new friends will come from. Yesterday, we were blessed to finally meet some friends of ours. Strange as it sounds, we (I) had "met" a wonderful woman on our adoption agency's internet forum about two years ago. They were in the process of adopting a sibling group while we were waiting for our referral for Marcus and Zoe. They traveled to Ethiopia and picked up their three kids, then we traveled to get Marcus & Zoe and then they traveled again to bring home another daughter...and so it goes.
During that time, we were blessed by being able to pray for each other and support each other on-line, through the ups and downs of the adoption process. Because they live no where near us, I never got to actually meet them until yesterday when they hosted us at their house in Wisconsin. What a blessing it was to finally see the children I prayed for and to see our children enjoying each other.
We didn't take a lot of pictures because we spent most of the time talking, but here are a couple of cute ones of Marcus & Zoe with their new friends.
