FTIA Reunion Picnic

This actually occurred several weeks ago, but it's just too good not to post.

Every year the adoption agency that we went through to get Kate, FTIA, hosts a reunion picnic for all of the families who have adopted through them.  They work with several countries so it is quite a large group.  The picnic is held at a great park in a nearby town so it is easy for us to attend every year.  The park has two different play areas, a carousel, ice cream stand, miniature golf and more.

The day is usually very hot but it's so worth it.  Our first year, all but two of the families in our group of twelve were able to attend.  It was awesome.  The last two years there have only been two of us who have been able to attend.  It's still a lot of fun and I think it's so important for our girls to get together and play and see other similar families. 

Every year Callie starts going crazy when she sees various sets of twins.  I tell her the same thing every year..."take it up with God".  I'm not interested in pursuing an adoption of twins, but if He drops them in our laps, then so be it.  I prefer them one at a time. :)  This year she kept taking pictures of all the babies she saw from Ethiopia and India.  You wouldn't believe all of the pictures we have of children we don't even know!

  1. LOL!!! I prefer them one at the time too, but wouldn't change anything at this point ;-)

    I wish we could attend the picnic too! July is tough though, and probably always will..
