We have many friends that we consider to be family, and they are thrilled that we will soon have a child. Our friends come from many walks of life, races, and ethnic backgrounds. Many of them are part of our church community. They have been there for us and will continue to be there for us. Some of our closest friends live right in our neighborhood and also have adopted children and babies. Our community and friends are excited and ready to welcome a new baby; they are such great support in our daily life.
