Do you have any friends who have also followed the path of adopting or fostering children?

I have friends I have met on my journey but none who adopted that were friends before we adopted. I do have a few who were adopted themselves and I have family who were adopted as kids. I am fortunate to have a very adoption friendly family. :)

I knew a number of people who were foster families during my college and early adult years, friends and even some parents of my friends. DH has a number of cousins who were adopted through the foster care system, but nobody in my family has adopted before. We also have friends who adopted two older kiddos from Ethiopia.

Now of course we know a lot of families through our training classes, monthly support group, etc.

 We have quite a few friends who adopted which has been really nice to learn more about their journey and know we can go to them with any questions when we start the process.
