A Friend for Life

Early on in the research process for our second adoption, I heard about a girl named Melissa at church that was interested in adoption as well. So I reached out to her and invited her to lunch.  We sat at a Mexican restaurant and chatted and laughed for almost 2 hours before realizing we had not even brought up the subject of adoption yet. That was when I knew we would be fast friends.
Not only did we end up adopting two little boys born within 3 months of each other but those little boys have now grown up playing together as well.
We have seen each other through some pretty rough times and now get the opportunity to work on events together, too. I love her like a sister and am blessed to call her my friend.
Love you Meldrop.

I feel the same way, Anna! I'm blessed by my adoption journey in more ways than I know how to count!
