A new friend

We took a short trip to Bella Vista this afternoon to pick up a set of dishes and a Longaberger Basket I found on Craigslist. I'll post a pick soon. They are the cutest white on white dishes and I got place settings for 11 for $10. It was a huge deal!

I was visiting with the lady and we discovered that we were both foster parents and she had just adopted her babies a few days after our adoption was finalized! I brought hubby and A. in to meet them. She was so nice and we had a good time visiting her and the babies. She asked if we could keep in touch. I hope we do. It's nice to make new friends who have similar experiences.

What a great story!! Now I ask you, is there anything Craigslist can't do?! Score on the dishes.

But seriously, what a great story, that's so fun and I hope that you keep in touch LoL I have to say that I'm jealous, I wish I could find someone like me... my husband my not agree though ;)

Isn't it amazing how we find the sweetest people in the most different circumstances? I have met some awesome people through Freecycle and Craigslist.
