So, I'm sorry this has taken a while, but I've actually been busy!
Tuesday I met Britt at Starbucks before our support group, which is just awkward meeting someone new, like a blind date, but I've had to just learn to do that since the move, so it was not that big of a deal. Anyhow I met her and her sweet husband A, and they were both wonderful, as was her adorable Yorkie that I had to get a little love from before we headed off to the meeting.
The support group itself was great, it's just a nice, calm, serene setting where you can say what you feel. You can say the things that you can't say to people who haven't experienced this hardship, and it was freeing. It was nice to meet other people who are in different situations, but still understand the grief that comes from losing a child. All of the ladies were amazing, the group leader was phenominal, as she was just so peaceful! I recomment finding a group if you can and feel very blessed that Britt helped me find this one, and that we can share that experience together. I'll definately be going back!! Funny how I searched and searched for something like that back home, and never found it, and here it is just perfect in Tyler.
As for meeting a fellow blogger, that is just a great experience. It's like you just 'know' what the other feels like. Britt and I talked for forever after the meeting too, and found that we have tons of things in common, which was fun, funny, and eery (but not in a bad way!). We'll definately be getting together and doing more things and I'm grateful to have met her! Keep sending love her way too!!
On another note, I've been buying clothes for Cala, which is fun! And 2 of her 3 pieces of furniture is in, so we'll wait for it all to get here and have it delivered, so we're looking at maybe the second week in May. I'm excited about that part! Keep praying for us, baby mama, Cala, and all those out there who are working to make their baby dreams come true!!
