After last year's Chinese New Year celebration put on by the FL office of GWCA, Jolene & I have developed a really nice friendship. We speak constantly & really get each other.
Even better is that our girls have become fast friends. At the ripe old age of 7, Jade & Erin are just about the oldest girls in our local FCC chapter. Up until this past year, they had always acknowledged each other but now they can't wait to have a playdate. Jade's sister Emma has no problem keeping up with them!
Back in December, Jolene & I arranged to have breakfast together & go to a park afterwards. It's so nice to see the girls playing together. What I really like is that Erin has a friend who is in the same situation she is in - both Chinese, both adopted by non-Chinese parents. Erin has a lot of friends like this up to and including her adored godsister. However, having someone her own age is really nice because as they grow older, their commonalites will hopefully get them through the tough times that their parents know are coming.
Erin, Jade & Emma
Making sure that they include Emma.
Let the giggles begin!
Just what is so funny girls!?
