Jack and I met two very special people today! And all by God's design and in His timing.
I've wanted to meet Jack's birthmother's other son and his family for sometime now, but getting up my courage to jump in and do it was taking too long for God's taste apparently because today, at the supermarket, in my "I'm running errands after swimming and before going home to put make up on clothes" Our eyes locked, I recalled her face from the past at our initiation and then again at training...I realised that the little boy in the cart was HIM!!!!! H's other son! And E. Who I've been so ready but not ready to meet was smiling at me and asking, "are you Kelley?" as I was commenting on the cuteness of her little guy's hair, it all seemed to happen at the same time, a totally anonymous mom converstation and the realization that I KNEW THEM
The awesome thing? She was as excited as I am! Neither of us wanted to leave the store!
I made the produce guy take a picture, I'm sure he thought we were nuts.
Open adoption doesn't always mean open with the birthmom, sometimes it means "Open minded to your definition of family" Because I think our family just grew.
