Feeling Close to Distant Friends

When we got DD, we were told that her best friend was adopted by a family in Spain. Our girls lived together and were care for by the same couple. They were adopted on the same day in 2004. We’ve been in contact with this family for a few years. It’s so funny how we feel a special bond with them even though we’ve never actually met. There’s just a strong connection that’s hard to describe. This week we received a special package in the mail from them.

DD’s sweet friend sent t-shirts from Barcelona.

The girls LOVE them.

Here they are acting silly while modeling for me.

She also sent cute little pony-tail holders…thus the ponytails.

We received a beautiful Christmas card, ornaments and even ...

A special piece of original artwork illustrating Christmas in Spain. The girls really liked this. They want to make some special pictures to send back.

My favorite gift, however, was a DVD containing pictures of DD’s friend and her family from Gotcha Day until present. This is absolutely priceless. Thank you SO MUCH sweet friends. Maybe someday we’ll actually get to meet in person.
