I have followed along Becky's blog since I started blogging. I have visited Gwen's blog from time to time but didn't really know a lot about her or her family. Here's my take on these two women. Becky is the real deal. The warmth and loveliness you see on her blog is all legit. I immediately was drawn right to her. Her smile and personality are irresistible. It was a true joy to see her. Gwen is stunning and a spitfire. She had me busting up all night long. She's the woman who you know will ensure that you have a blast if she's with you for a girls night out.
Ok, I'm starting to sound like one of those people who writes about celebrities or something. But let me get down to the beauty of what I saw tonight. I saw these three women with a bond that I was not a part of and could never be a part of. There is a tie between them. It is the shared experience of journeying to a foreign land and returning with a child. They went through that process together and it forever changed them and bound them to each other. I could see it. This sisterhood. And it was very moving to me. I look forward to when I go on my journey and I hope that I am accompanied with women as amazing as these.
This is Stephanie with her husband David who is a hoot. My husband had a great time talking and laughing with him throughout the evening. I want to thank you for the invitation Stefanie, we are so glad that we went. I also want to thank Becky and Gwen for being so wonderful. It was a pleasure to meet you and I will be leaving many comments on your blogs. I am so looking forward to going through this wait with you.
