Yesterday we went to a lunar new year celebration for Korean adoptive families. It was originally scheduled for earlier this year, but thanks to the snowstorms had to be postponed until yesterday. We had a wonderful time and it was just what we both needed at this point.
First of all, the food was absolutely amazing! There was japchae, mandu, bulgogi, kimbap, and other delicacies. Just what I had been craving!
While we were waiting on our friends to arrive, we chatted with some other adoptive families who were just so nice and who confirmed that my emotional outbursts were normal. We also reconnected with some families we knew from the waiting parents meetings, but who have now brought home their children.
As the husband said: "It's so nice to be with people who you don't have to explain yourself to."
