My friends gave me a surprise baby shower for Lily. Even now, I get choked up about it. I've never had a surprise party. Baby showers usually are given before a baby is born, so it's one of the things us adoptive moms don't usually get until afterwards. But for me, I think that makes it even more meaningful. And the love and support I felt that day was.....a shower of blessing. There's just really not any other way to describe it.
(that's everyone's reaction when they saw my reaction)
