I spent the weekend in Mountain Home, Idaho. Our great friends, Laurie and Keith are stationed there. Their son, Dustin graduated from high school Friday night. I needed to get away and most needed to see people who know and love us. Lately, I have been thinking about how a birthmother is going to view Greg and I. Most of you know we don't have a relationship with Greg's family. When it comes to adoption, this really worries me. However, being with Laurie and Keith and their children this weekend, just reinforced that our friends are our family. We jokingly call Dustin our godson (long story), but I truly felt like he was part of our family this weekend watching him close a chapter in his life. I hope that a birthmother will see the importance of our friends in our life.
Laurie, Keith, Dustin (you probably don't read this) and Danielle....thank you for a great, much needed, weekend. Every time I see you guys, no matter what the outside of your house looks like, the inside is always the same..it's filled with love, laughter, great food and stuff :)
