Yeah! We finished PRIDE yesterday! It was yet again a very long day – I guess I’m just not used to sitting still for 8 hours a day. Yesterday’s topics were continuing family relationships, planning for change and making an informed change. We also had a panel of those involved in foster / domestic adoption where we were able to ask questions. It was an interesting day for sure. But I am super happy to be done. One thing they could have improved upon was the lunches. Yesterday we were served bologna sandwiches. Yes – bologna. The deserts were very good however. Just wondering if anyone else in our group had a nice cold one when they got home?!
On a sad note, on our way to PRIDE we were listening to the news on the radio and were shocked to hear about a car accident on HWY 4 on Friday. There was 42 year old woman killed an a 1yr old was in critical care in London. We were not sure if we heard the name right – but unfortunately we had – it was the wife of Matt’s teaching partner a few years ago. She was a wonderful woman – a mother to 4 and a foster mother to many many more children in need. So Matt and I were in shock and obviously were not paying as much attention to PRIDE as we should have. Shawn we are thinking about you and praying for you.
