I have a secret

This year's Orlando retreat has exploded to upwards of 50 women (and counting).

WOW.

I can't truly explain to you how last year congealed the nine of us into life-long friends. Yet, I do think the words we HAVE been able to say are the reason it has grown exponentially this year. We go to one another for much more than therapeutic parenting. We share heartaches and joys and lift each other constantly. Die hard friends.

Seeing how this year will put us into a position to connect with even more amazing women, we decided to do a stealth, halfway through the year meet-up. Six of the original Orlando Nine will meet here at Hill Shade RV Park and crash on the floor of my double wide. We will reconnect so we feel the freedom to melt into the rest of you in March.

I am leaving THIS SECOND to head to Austin and start collecting them from the airport.

Will keep you updated, if I'm not just throwing them into a pile and rolling around in their goodness.

Was thinking about you this weekend. This American Life on NPR had a segment with an adoptive mom who has a child with RAD. Really touching story.
