AMAZING SINGLE MOMMAS DOS (2)

Why is it that when waiting families get together it just seems so SOOTHING to me???? Tonight I hosted our second monthly waiting single momma group. The offer of help cleaning up was declined by me because as I put my hands in the warm suddys water and load the dishwasher, it gaves me TIME to think and reflect upon the party. By habit, after any party I host, I love to be alone to clean up and assess what worked, what didn't and what things I would do differently at the get together. This time aside from assessing that the chicken enchiladas were overcooked, I thought of each and every person who was there. Marque was the only momma who has her little gem..... Liza (5 yrs) is such eye candy and a great inspirtation to us waiting (some longer than others) mommas that this treasure will be the outcome to our long bumpy road. Each single momma has a story and dreams of life with there little one. Each momma has so much to offer her child. I am so happy that I have found these mommas to help pass the time and share the joy as we all in turn get our little gals......

We all had such great intentions to take pictures with cameras ready but we ended up too inthralled in conversation and eating that the cameras were forgotten. No pictures......SORRY!!!

Sounds like such fun...and an emotional boost.

I know what you mean about the camera. It can be sitting right there but when the yacking gets good...

I'm so glad you've found a good group of local mommas. Nothing better during this long wait than to hook up with people who totally get it! And I bet they were all psyched to enjoy your hospitality - because having experienced it firsthand I can say that you are the best hostess ever!!!

Dontcha love that?! I've also helped start up a local adoptive single moms group. We've got an even mix of Guatemala and China moms and one going to Vietnam. Most waiting. A few babies. But so much fun and so great to connect with others who don't need explanation about your choices or how the process works. Glad you found your group!

That's great! I love to get all my single mamas to be in one place, we are too spread out.

Lisa,

I had sooooooooo much fun at the party! I am so grateful to have found you and all of the other single mommas! It felt so good to chat, chat, chat & chat (and play with Liza of course). Can't wait until the next time!
