Blown Away!!!

I just got home from what I thought was our church class' girls night out. Which it was (and, it was very fun, btw), BUT, it was also a surprise baby shower for me, M, and our future foster babies! I am completely blown away!! I was completely surprised!!! When they yelled "surprise" as I walked through the door, it didn't even cross my mind that it was anything for me! In fact, I thought they were being sarcastic, since I was actually fairly late (thanks, Erin:)). So, they totally pulled it off!!!

It never crossed my mind to have a baby shower, much less from people that I have only been at church with for 5 1/2 months! It makes me teary at the thought of how wonderful these girls are and how close I have grown to so many of them over the past few months! They have been such a support to us as we transitioned into new jobs, a new church and parenthood, since June! I am so grateful for the friendship and support they have given us! You know who you are!! Thank you SOOO much!!!

When M wakes up, I'll be excited to show her all of her wonderful new things!!! She got cute clothes, TONS of diapers/wipes, toys, baby gear, accessories, diaper genie, gift cards and MORE!!! I know she'll love every bit of it!

Thank you all so much!!!!

You made a hall! I wish I could have come. Glad it was a surprise...I almost ruined it when you came by on Tuesday by giving you your gift early! Agh!

That is so awesome! Every woman should have wonderful women she can lean on, women who listen to God and do sweet things for each other..that is what it is all about.

I'm so sorry I had to miss it. We had to leave town early Fri and Thurs was spent packing. Looks like a great turn out for Sweet little M.
