It's been way to long since I've posted. This is such a big part of my life and I've been working with every resource available to finally have my dream of a family come true. I can only imagine how it must be for you as a birthmother searching for the potential parents of your baby. It must be overwhelming. Hopefully we can give you all of the info that you need in these pages to start to really get to know us. I know that I try to have you understand what my life is like. Although it's busy like most of you, busy is good. I've had a lot of exciting things happening.
From my prior posts, you can tell that I love the holidays and spending time with my family and friends. We recently had a great birthday party for my dad, Fred. Out of all of us, he's the quietist and never wants to much of a fuss over him. What he's realized over the years is that we will always make a fuss over him. He's just a great dad. We all came over to have a big family dinner in his honor at my sisters house. There was probably 20 of us there including some friends. There was lots of food and plenty of laughs. My family always has tons of fun when we are together and whether it's a birthday, anniversary, silly holiday or just a normal weekend, we're always looking for an excuse to get together. We take turns going to each other's homes. My parents have been coming to see me quite a bit since the weather has been better. My mom, Elaine, always worries about driving if it's iffy outside. It's a funny dynamic that my parents have. She gets a little worried, he says that it's fine and off they go. I love when they come over. I'll always have a friend over to see them because my friends are like their other children, especially my friend Lisa.
Lisa I have been friends for almost 15 years now. We met through a mutual friend and really got to know each other when she asked me to be in a book club. We both love to read (my friends make fun that I always have a kindle with me so I can read whenever I have a minute). From there, our friendship took off and we've been close ever since. Unfortunately, she and our mutual friend had a falling out but we joke that she got me in the divorce-lucky for me. I'm still close with both of them though. Anyway, Lisa has had a really exciting year. In one year's time, she met the love of her life, a guy named John. He was from London and working locally and they met on a dating app. He's the sweetest guy and he treats her like a princess. I couldn't have picked someone better for her if I had done it myself. I will pat myself on the back a little though. I told her the day that I met him that if she would let herself, she would marry him. I just knew it. You can tell when you are that close. He was the first guy that could really see how special she was and appreciated her for that. So they dated, he moved to the US, they just got married and moved into a new home. They still live very close to me which made me so happy. John calls me his other wife. This week, we'll be celebrating all week. it's John's birthday on Tuesday, his first in the US. Friday is their rehearsal dinner (their first ceremony was just for them) and Sat is the party. It's nice that I get to be a part of Friday's festivities. It's just their family and me. Lisa and I are like sisters. We've been by each other's sides through ups and downs and it's nice when it's all up. She's just so happy. I can't wait until they get pregnant. Ideally, we'd love to be near each other when we raise our children.....they will be family. We always said that it was worth the wait being single to know that you are with the right guy. She's living proof that our houghts were true. Now, they are on a mission to find me my better half. I know he's out there, we just need to find each other and the baby that we'll raise together. Our family is coming....it's just a matter of time.
