Dominic especially enjoyed the party. Even though he was a bit shy to start out, he broke out of his shell and got in a few laps running around, loading up on sugar, and having a grand time. He even got his face painted like a gorilla/monkey!
For Andy and I, we enjoyed being able to chat with some of the other adoptive families. Being able to trade war stories and cute updates about our current kids is always a treat. Personally, talking with the OA&FS staff was good for me. It was exciting to hear that our letter was just sent out in collective books to potential birthfamilies just this week. While that doesn't mean anything direct, it's heartening to hear that there are opportunities for birthfamilies considering adoption to get to know us as a potential option for their child!
