There must be something in the air, and it isn’t the joy of being able to get married. Many of our friends are having babies. Ginny and Amy are about to give birth to their first child. The due date is July 17. We went to our first baby shower a couple of weeks ago to celebrate with them.
Earlier this year our good friends Lewis and Shane traveled to the U.S. to be here when their baby was born. His name is Jonathan and he is just beautiful! Lewis and Shane will be coming to the U.S. again early next year for their second baby.
We also had an M.D. friend of Lewis and Shane stay with us late last year who was here in the U.S. and was getting ready to have his own baby.
Also earlier this year we went to a brunch and another set of friends just adopted a boy from Vietnam. The discussion that occurred during this brunch was on the adoption process.
I also have another friend and his wife who just adopted a baby boy from Guatemala.
So many friends. So many babies. We’re ready to do it too. I’ve joked with Doug since we first met that I wanted 4 or 5 kids. That isn’t going to happen, but who knows–there just might be a baby or two in our future as well. Of course, we want to get married first. We would hate to have children out of wedlock! 😉
