Meeting my Friend

When the Internet first started becoming popular, I was in college {yep, that pretty much dates me!}.  At that time, the only people who met friends on-line and then in person, well, we pretty much thought they'd lost their minds!  In fact, my first exposure to a couple of on-line friends meeting up with each other turned into a story that still makes me shutter.

However, times, they are a'changin!  Now, I am as aware as probably anyone {due to my lovely line of work} that there are MANY predators out there and that it's important to protect yourself online.  However, this world of adoption has really opened up my eyes to the fact that there are some truly lovely, genuine people in cyberspace that really just care about this journey and our family without even knowing us.

I had the awesome opportunity to meet one such sweet friend two weeks ago.  I've mentioned Sarah before, but my friend, Tiffany, and I actually got to meet her in the flesh!!

It is amazing how God has interwoven our stories and it was a great weekend full of talking, eating at yummy restaurants, talking, lounging in the hot tub, talking, shopping, and more talking.  You'd think we had all known each other since pre-school!

So thankful for our "new" friendship!
