A shower for Maria was on Saturday April 25th at my friend Miriam's house, put on by my friend Bev. It was so nice; friends from our old Whitney Point church and family came out. They were even good enough to remember Macella & Kirstie as well.
Each person made little picture cards of Maria with an acrostic made for each letter of her name. Then we had a nice snack of assorted fruits and brownies---yum yum! Then I (Marsha) gave a talk on getting Maria and played our adoption day video. Finally we had present opening. Maria looked in a few bags, but didn't really care to open anything. She enjoyed being the center of attention though.
After the shower we all went to visit Gary's dad. Then we walked over to Gary's brother and sister-in-law's. Finally we ended up at Aaron & Bev's house for a bonfire. It was Maria's 1st bonfire!
Sunday the 26th-Back to WP church for a visit. Maria enjoys her friends in the nursery there! Then we headed to Grandma & Grandpa Gordon's for lunch.
Maria is feeling better too, so we are so glad about that!
