One definite highlight of the trip was getting to meet Rebecca. We found each other in the Rwandan blog world and have been on the same path. We worked through paperwork, sat on conference calls, received approval letters and then received our referrals all together. All of this while we blog stalked, emailed and tried to calculate when all of the good news would be sent our way! Unfortunately, the Furrs were not able to travel with us (Smiths, Bowers and Spores). They were about a week behind us. So you can imagine my joy when I was able to meet her in person and give her a big hug! We sat and talked about our families, our Rwandan babies, our experiences and just regular life. It was a wonderful time and I can't wait to meet up with her again, next time with our families in tow!
Oprah Note: The taping that my friends and I attended will air on Wednesday, February 24. One friend and I are in the front row to Oprah's left. I have a very pink jacket on. It is just the 2 of us on the FRONT ROW! Our other friends are just 2 rows back in green and turquoise blue respectively.
