A Shower of Friends

A few weeks ago, our friends threw us a wonderful party to celebrate DJ’s upcoming arrival. My best friend and her DH hosted the shower in their beautiful house on the North Side.

It was a perfect spring day filled with friends and laughter and good food. Our friends really went all out…three types of quiche, a mimosa bar, and rainbow fruit skewers!
But I was most impressed by the love and excitement buzzing in the air. We had friends going all the way back to elementary school, junior high, high school, and college as well as friends from our time in Wilkes-Barre and new friends since we moved back to Pittsburgh. People who have been on this journey to parenthood with us for almost a decade, who have been there for all of the struggles and small victories leading up to this big moment.

Which leads me to the announcement that all of you have been waiting for…we found out today that we will be traveling out west to meet and bring home our son in three weeks! While it is a bit longer than we were hoping, three weeks is nothing compared to the years of waiting that we’ve already been through. So let’s start the countdown to June 10!
