2007 NEO Guat Family Group X-mas Party

Adoption has changed our lives! Not only do we have Isabella, but we also have been very lucky to make great friends who have enriched their lives through adoption.

Thus, the NEO Guatemala Family Group!

It was started a little over a year ago by a mom who was waiting to bring her daughter home. Christmas was approaching and she was down much like I was the year prior. She longed for her baby. So she reached out to others in NEO who were in a similar situation. She posted a note on adoption.com asking anyone who was in her situation who wanted to meet to talk and cry and bond, to meet her for lunch. Twelve people responded and the group was born. Now most of the babies are home and we were able to celebrate with all of them at the 1st annual Christmas Party.

I got involved with the group mid last year when I met the "president" online. And now I'm lucky to call her a friend. Thanks so much, Mindy, for such a great day!
