This weekend I am going to a 1 year old birthday party! Not only will this be great because this little guy is adorable, but because I will get to see so many friends. I have known most of my friends for the majority of my life and I'm not sure most people can say that. These days, everyone has busy schedules, so its times like birthday parties that I cherish, where everyone gets together. My friends have been a tremendous support system, always asking about how this process is going and what the next steps are. One of my friends even said that she would think of being a surrogate for me. Even though, Andrew and I decided to pursue adoption, those are the kind of friends we have. I know that when we welcome a child into our home they will all be there for support.
