Created for Care in Atlanta, GA. Totally check it out for all the details of what the weekend will entail! This was my birthday gift this year from my hubs and it's truly the perfect gift! To cut down the cost of travel, three of us adopting mama's decided to road trip it from TX! My amazing friends Mitzi and Courtney will head out with me on Thursday afternoon, stopping half way in MS at another incredible adopting mama's place, Alison, to crash for the night (Funny how within the adoption blog world, you can spend the night at a "strangers" house, yet feel like the best of friends and be completely comfortable! Thanks Alison, you're the best!!!). The game plan is to get up early the next morning and head on out to the Atlanta airport to pick up our other two roomies who are flying in for the retreat, Kelly Jo and Lara (roomies, I am so pumped about meeting you and rooming together, it's going to be a blast!). Then we'll load up and head onto the retreat for a great weekend packed full of awesome breakout sessions, fellowship, and relaxation!
Rewind 10 months ago and I sat here unable to come up with a single friend who had adopted, was in the process of adoption, or knew a lick about the process! I totally remember having a little chat with God about the fact that I thought this was an awfully BIG request of Him to ask us step out into uncharted territory considering the fact that we seemed all alone in the journey! I earnestly prayed that He would put friends in my life who could relate to what we were jumping into and who were in this crazy journey too. Well would you look at that... I have friends! He answers prayers!
I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am to meet so many of these ladies, who's blogs I follow, in person! I love that God has blessed me with this group of people in my life- for encouragement and wisdom as we all trek through this crazy journey called adoption!
So here's to a fun and SAFE road trip with two gals that I can't wait to spend time with, here's the the five of us roomies who I am stoked to get to know better, and here's to God answering prayers and providing an awesome weekend of fellowship and growth!
