I got to know Melissa Willems' during the waiting period of our adoptions. It would turn out that Eli and Ezra were crib neighbors at the 'Thomas Center', the transitional home for our adoption agency. We've kept in touch since we have brought our boys home but after learning that the Willems' family are planning to move to the Netherlands, I really wanted to get our boys together. It was a very spontaneous decision but I bought a plane ticket for Eli and I to visit the Willems' family in October.
The plane ride there (and back) was not fun, but it was great to see the boys together! So cute! Melissa and Ben were great hosts (Melissa is an amazing cook!) and Asheville is just beautiful! The weather was cold but it was a nice break from the hot California weather!
