An Ode to Waiting Moms

This spring we started a waiting moms group. It has been so wonderful and supportive. While we are all so different we have so much in common going through all of the ups and downs of adoption. I don’t think anyone can really truly understand it until they have gone though it. I am so glad that these women are in my life and get to share the process with them. This month THREE members of our group (there are only like 7 of us) are going to pick up their little ones from Ethiopia. I truly feel like when one of us gets to bring home their kid, we kind of all get to bring home our kids. These women are so extraordinary and brave. I am SO grateful that they are in my life. I can’t wait to meet their little ones. Many many congrats to our no longer “waiting moms”.
