Waiting Mommies Dinner #7

I'm late posting this but wanted to share a picture of our latest waiting mommies dinner. It's hard to believe that it's only been a year since we first started getting together! Last November when we got together for the first time many of us had never met before. Now, one short year later the ladies that attend these dinners are some of my most precious and cherished friends and I am thankful to God from bringing us together!

Here's the group that gathered together on November 9th. Back row (l to r): Ange (who showed us pictures of her adorable son waiting for her in Vietnam!), Bev, Karen, Tammy, Jill, Rebekah and myself. Front row: Lea, Suzanne, Julia, Paula, Liz and the oh so adorable Ava!

Each time we meet together it's fun to hear what's been happening in one anothers lives and also see new referral pictures. Congratulations Ange!! We also have a gift exchange that is optional to participate in. This month's theme was 'Reading is Fun' and we encouraged people to give their favourite childhood book to someone else. Hannah received a beautiful board book and matching bunny for the 'Guess How Much I Love You' story! Too cute! Thank you! And yes, I teared up in the restaurant when I read it. What a beautiful story! My arms ache for the day when I'll be holding Hannah and reading this beautiful story to her.

Hannah, Guess how much I love you? I love you more than I ever knew I could even though right now you are only in my heart you are a part of my life, dreams and future. I'm praying for you and excited about the day that God will bring you and I together. Hannah, mommy loves you!! xoxo

  4. Getting together with other moms really helped me during the wait. Now that some of us have our babies, we still try to meet up. (Olivia has to hold her belly button when she has her bottle...she's been doing that since the day we met her...its so cute.)

  5. I LOVE that book! I bought it when I was pregnant with Mikayla, and read it to both my kids. Our favourite saying at bedtime is "How much do you love me?" and the kids answer "To the moon and back!" Ahhh... it's so cute.
