Adoption everywhere!

Apparently, if you didn't already know the Target on Westport Rd. is a hotbed of International Adoption. Today during our hour or so in there we met a mama home four weeks with her adorable Olivia (also from Jiangxi province), a woman with her sweet 8 or 9 year old daughter, and another woman who is starting paperwork for an adoption from Ethiopia! So nice to meet other families like ours. Hard to know how to approach them but easier than before Makenna was home. We can kind of exchange looks and usually start a conversation. I exchanged numbers with Olivia's mom Sara, so hopefully we can get together sometime. I would love for Makenna to have friends adopted from China. We will get involved with the local FCC but it is kinda nice just meeting people by chance (or by blog like Kerry Lu's mama)!

And here are a couple of pictures of course.

Cute, cute, cute! We are going to be at the Zoo this coming Thursday and we do plan on getting a membership. I think that would be a great place to meet up sometime.

Hey Dana, I was just looking at some of your post and saw Sara and Olivia's name and they are coming to our Moon festival this year. I havent met them yet only through email. A friend of mine met her and invited them, isnt it funny how you meet people. It was nice meeting you and your beautiful family Sat, we hope you can make it too.
