Visiting With The Wesselman's

On Monday and Tuesday we were delighted to meet up with friends we met on our last trip to China for Lauren's adoption.  Chad and Becky Wesselman were there with their son Tanner to adopt Anna at that time.

We have stayed in touch over the years via Face book and our family blogs, so when they planned a family trip to Disney World it was a wonderful opportunity to visit with them.  We met initially at Epcot on Monday and while it was wonderful to see them the day was a miserable drizzly one that was cold and just dreary.  So after touring around as long as we could before the cold and walking got to us, we agreed to meet up again on Tuesday at the Magic Kingdom park.

This day the weather was SO much better and it made our time together that much better.  We walked and rode rides and got a chance to talk and just spend time together.  Amazing how quickly the kids are growing up, we shared adjustment stories and celebrated with them as they received more news on completed and approved paperwork in the adoption process of the little boy Oliver they are now in the process of adopting from China.  SOOOO, excited for them!!!!

We needed to make it a shorter day on Tuesday, and said our goodbyes before we headed home and left them to finish their time at Disney World.

Time to say goodbye, they had gifts to share with the girls as we parted

It was wonderful seeing their family and we look forward to the next time we meet up they will have their newest member with them.
