Friends at the Beach

Monday, August 20, 2007


We were very fortunate to begin our family vacation with a visit from two wonderful families in the Chinese adoption community. Debbie from Hiking through life with Ian and Lili & Daleea from Jewels of my Heart came this weekend to meet us in Hilton Head. It was amazing to finally meet these families. All of the children played as if they had known one another forever. Debbie and Daleea are kind, loving Moms and I feel lucky to call them friends.

Debbie has posted some incredible photos and I am sure Daleea will too. They are awesome photographers and I learned a thing or two from them this weekend.

Seeing all those pictures was wonderful ~ especially the ones of Will, Hannah, and Nick because you know what happened! Don't you dare sell yourself short ~ those pictures are amazing :D
