Walking this adoption road can be so lonely, as said before in a previous post. I just experienced this feeling yesterday. Not included, left out and lonely. Friendship to me is so important, but I am realizing more how different friends can be. There are some who are there for you through anything, helping, praying, loving and caring. There are some who are there to have fun and hang out occasionally. Surface friends who are there to chat with and are always smiling; don't really know a lot about you but are good to occasionally visit. There are friends who are friends because of our children. There are friends who only give a call when they need something. Friends who you can call when you need a favor. There are friends who used to be friends and who've moved on. And friends who have made new friends. Friends who have a lot in common, and friends who you wonder why? Friends who are busy, and friends who take lots of time.
I am sooo blessed to have found a few true friends in my life.

9 Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work:
