Tonight is Tapestry night!!! Tapestry is an adoption ministry that we are a part of through Irving Bible Church and I can not tell you how much I love it! They have all sorts of get-togethers and seminars and such for every part of the adoption and foster care process (play-groups, adult adoptees groups, emergency closet for foster families, etc.). We have only attended the Waiting Families Group but I have heard so many good things about this ministry so I decided to put in this shameless plug post.
I encourage you if you are adopting to find a support group. We don't attend Irving Bible Church so I was a little intimated at first. Our friends Daniel and Whitney (I know I talk too much about them!) have an adoption ministry at their church in Illinois so I decided to google and find one here in Dallas. We were desperate to figure out what agency to use and find other people in the same place as us and Tapestry has really come through! We also meet with a yahoo group for Dallas area Ethiopian Adoptive Families which is so fun, too. Search Ethiopia babies in yahoo groups if you live in Dallas.
So all this is to say if your feeling a little lost out there, find a real live support group or adoption ministry to be apart of..... it makes the waiting feel a little easier. Don't get me wrong, I love all of you supportive bloggers, but sometimes you just need a face to face conversation:)
PS. we have a new water heater! now if only the carpet would dry.....
