Blog U '08

We are packing our bags and heading out the door tomorrow morning for the First Annual Blog Union!! It is a gathering of families that have a passion for Ethiopian adoption and it is taking place in Hermosa Beach, CA.!! Yahoo.

We can't wait!! This will be our last vacation as a family of 6-- our last hoorah until we get Abe. The blogging community has helped to carry me through the thick and thin of this adoption and I'm thrilled for the opportunity to meet many in person.  Oh, and the sun and the surf sound really enticing too! :)

We get to hang with the Crazy Thorne clan and I finally get to have that glass of wine with my dear friend Laurie! We have only talked about it for almost a year. 

Avery gets to see her favorite Ethiopian babe, Silas T.  The one that spurred her on to pray Abe into our home. :)  Good times will be had by all!

A big shout out to Carey for all of her hard work to make this a reality!  I hope you know how much we all appreciate you. :)

To those who can't make it this year (Lori, Tracie, Erica , Julie and Julie to name a few) we will miss you!!!!

I wish I was going. I would love to meet all of you guys. Next year, and god willing, we will have our own bundle of hugs (or two). Have an amazing time. I will be thinking of you all.

Silas can't wait to see Avery either! I wonder if she is going to be as into playing with him as she was back a few many months ago. :) He is a lot quicker now a days!!!
Yah for the shout out! :)

Lori said...

Enjoy the beach! I have to admit that I'm VERY bummed to be missing the Union... and I know I'll be very jealous of all the fun that's going to be had! Hopefully we'll make it next year. Have fun and I can't wait to see Abe in your arms soon!!! :)
