I had the privilege while out in Colorado to meet, in person, a very special blog buddy. Of course she beat me on posting about our afternoon together on her blog http://www.nogreaterjoymom.com/ but that doesn't surprise me since she's the Blog Queen!
Adeye is adopting 2 little girls with Down syndrome from the same country we are and I originally got in touch with her before I even knew we'd be going down this path of adoption as well. I thought I could encourage her in bringing a daughter with Ds into their family since we're already 12yrs. into that journey. However, I've found that I'm receiving much needed encouragement from her blog entries as well as those of others I enjoy reading (see my blog list on the right side panel). I love how God even uses the internet to build up the Body of Christ!!
For those of you who read Adeye's blog and have never been able to listen to her in person--boy are you missing out!! She has this fabulous accent that I've been trying to imitate ever since meeting her. AND she's just as passionate about life, adoption, her family, and of course her relationship with God in person as she is on her blog. I considered our afternoon icing on this new and delicious cake we're getting to share in the adoption world.
Of course, I never would have gotten to know Adeye if it weren't for my dear friend Lisa who shares the same passions and convictions. Since she never posts pictures of herself on her blog, I'm posting one of her here as well.
And here is Adeye, in chilly Colorado. Thanks again for a great afternoon my friend!!!
