Sheridan's Shower

Ya know what's cool about being part of something like the International Adoption Community? You get to take part in all kinds of exciting things and share in other's excitement along the way. It's actually one of the best ways to cope with this wait - living vicariously through the excitement of others. Like I have said before - this journey is like a race that we can't quite figure out how to pace. So what better way tp deal with this than to run alongside someone else who sees their finish line coming up? It's pretty cool.

So this past weekend we got to run the last leg of someone else's race as we attended a baby shower for some new friends we have met. Michael and Kim will be heading to China somewhere around the first of August to finally pick up their little boy Sheridan. We have gotten to know them through our First Friday gatherings and we couldn't be happier for them. As Laura continually says "I can't wait to get my hands on Sheridan!"

Their shower was great - lots of people came - several we knew - lots we didnt. They had good food, got lots of gifts and I sealed the deal by eating a piece of cake that was the size of my head. I had a sugar rush the rest of the night.

Michael & Kim - thanks for allowing us to take part in this special event with you guys. We will be praying for you as you travel to China and back with Sheridan and can't wait to meet him!
