just what the doctor ordered

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's filled with love, laughter, great food and stuff :)

You two are going to make great parents and I can't wait for the day that happens for you both...just think of the shopping and stuff!!
Thanks for coming and celebrating with us and making Dustin's day even more special!

Hi ~ I just wanted to say that I post on Resolve and came over to take a look at your blog. :) We had our last FET this past February and after our second m/c in 6 months at 6.5 weeks...I was done. Our journey thus far has lasted 7 years and I just couldn't do it anymore. Like you, I had bruises and knots all over and after lots of $, emotional turmoil and nothing to show for it, I knew we had to move on. I guess I just wanted to let you know that you're not alone. I know this is so hard and it's so painful, but I wish you a wonderful experience on your next journey. Hope to see you more often on the bb. :)
