SINGLE MOMMAS THAT MEET

I am not going to say that I recently WHINED that there was NO China waiting families group in the SLC area. Tiffany and I have gotten together as FRIENDS and we plan on being a support to each other. Although one other waiting family is better than none, it was so fun to finally meet up with these two single waiting mommas. Yvette (in red) is almost ready to get her referral. (Yvette, as you read this I bet your heart is pounding so hard just thinking that you will be sooooo soon)!!! Leeanne (in white) is almost done with her paper chasing. I am sprawling over the (hot) old juke box. What???? There are two more people in this picture!!!!

This is Marque and Elizabeth or Liza (from Shang Goa SWI, Jiangxi) .... Marque is an inspiration to Yvonne and me. Just being around Liza you see how amazing she is. Marque has done such a great job with raising and nurturing Liza.... a great example to anyone who is thinking of adopting. Liza is captivating, brillant, beautiful, and so WELL BEHAVED!!! I want you all to notice how much Marque and Liza look like each other.... SAME SMILE!!!! This just helps reaffirm that the long wait and frustration will have the most beautiful treasure at the end!!!

EYE CANDY FOR THOSE OF US WAITING AND WAITING FOR OUR VERY OWN LIZA!!!!

Isn't it the greatest to meet up in person with others sharing the journey!

I LOVE it and am having a great time.

PS: Liza is indeed eye candy. What a sweetheart ;0)

What a great group of women. Sometimes it is hard to read all of the posts about the long wait and extended timelines. Thanks for another example of why it is all worth it!

What a great connection! I have not made these connections yet but hope to soon! Thanks again for the quilt square!

I was going to write the exact same thing as Connie but got here to see that she already had. There's nothing like finding new friends who are experiencing the same things as you. And they're out there, Mariah, just keep looking. I can't believe how many new single momma-to-be friends I'm meeting thru the internet, word of mouth, other friends, etc.

PS Liza is a beauty!

I met two of my best friends through waiting family groups. One of them became such a good friend we ended up traveling to China for our second daughters together. Though she now lives 8 states away, we're going to Disney World with the kids together next summer.

So glad you could all get together, it will be so fun to celebrate referrals coming in!!!

How awesome that you've met these great ladies. I'm sure they're very excited for you.

PS. I agree, Liza & her mom do look alike. They have the same beautiful high cheek bones.
