Instead of doing a real post of my own, I would like to direct you to Ladybug Journals to see a slideshow of the birthday party Rachel and I went to today. It was Isabelle's 2nd birthday, and she invited all her playgroup friends to celebrate with her.
All morning as I watched the six little girls playing, I was struck by how beautiful and amazing they all are, and what lucky mommies we are. Rachel looked around and said "My friends", and it just melted my heart. Though they don't fully realize it yet, they are so very blessed to have each other. They share the same heritage, and the same story that is both heart-breaking and joyous. As they grow they will have this group of friends that can understand like no one else can, and I think this is a very great gift for them all.
