I just love meeting other families, especially moms, that have adopted. I am now part of a large group on FB just for adoptive moms to connect and encourage each other. One mom that I found some time ago and I share something very big in common. Our little ones were raised by the same foster mom! Not only were they raised by the same foster mom, they lived together for 8 months. Jude is a few months older than Neylan so he was already in her home when Neylan was born and came along. And then Jude left his foster home when Neylan was 8 months old. Needless to say, I've been wanting to meet her and her little guy for a long time and it finally happened. Since we drove to TN for Thanksgiving, I decided to give this mom a shout to see if we could meet for a short time. We were able to coordinate a quick lunch at Chick-fil-a.
It was intersting to watch these two together. There was NO recognition whatsoever!! Oh well.
Or, maybe there was some recognition and this reunion was not what they had longed for!
Don't they look excited to see each other after 2 years apart? (insert sarcasm!)
Jude's fabulous mommy, Grace, and I
After many tries to get these two boys together for a decent picture, we gave up and decided it would be best if we just held them!
