Our First IFIF (Interacial Families In Friendship) Get Together!

Tonight was our first IFIF group meeting. Although they meet once a month, this was the first one we were able to attend. I am so sorry we didn't get the chance to attend sooner! It was SO FUN!!! Although I am known to be completely outgoing, I can get pretty nervous when I am the "newbie"! I should not have worried because everyone was so open and friendly! In total there were over 75 people, including kiddos! Although the majority were domestic adoption, there were a handful from Ethiopia, 1 from Liberia, and a few the children of interacial couples. What a BEAUTIFUL diverse crowd! (Even another couple like us who recognized us from COFCC events, with a daughter from China the same age as Lucy!) Lucy found herself a new friend and fellow diva in a sweetie named Natalie, and Vivi a new boyfriend in sweet 8 month old Sam! We cannot wait to see them all again next month!
(sorry for the poor pictures! this is what happens when you are too busy yakking and leave hubby to do the photos.......you know, the hubby that HATES to take pictures... especially the ones you are yelling for him to take from ACROSS the room when you see something cute happening as you are too busy, you know YAKKING! LOL!)

What a wonderful group! Where do you meet? We are always struggling with locations for our FCC events, so are lucky to get 2 pulled off a year, much less 12! AWESOME!

What a blast and a precious opportunity!

The girls are growing up too fast!

I'm the same way with Dave and pictures. He's not too fond of it so I just take the camera back.

Looks like Lucy had lots of fun. And Vivi and Sam... too cute!

What a great group - it's vital for us folks to have that connection. Especially for the kiddos too.

Oh, I can relate about the pics.taken by the hubbies. Though, yours did pretty good. I didn't notice any heads cut off!

Jill,

You are too funny. I know what you mean about the husband pics (lol).

It looks like you guys had a wonderful time and I bet you all can't wait for the next get-together.

Hugs,
