Is there anyone on here that lives near Chicago? One day ...
we'd love to connect with some of you, and all of our sweet little ones!

We're in Chicago, northside, and will be leaving next week Wed (3/17) to bring home our 7mo daughter. We have a homemade son who is 18mo. Where do you hail from?

We're in Oak Park.  We'd be happy to connect with other families! We have two older daughters (5 and 6) and Tsega is 20 months (she came home last May).

When the weather gets warmer I'd love for us to all get together...picnic/park?!!

Ethiopians for Ethiopians has started a program in Chicago.  Do any of you attend their programming? 

We attend in Minneapolis and find it a good way to connect with adoptive families.

While I presently live in Madison, all our friends and family are in Chicago.  We'd be interested to bring our son to any events.  We also have a very large circle of families of Ethiopian children here in Madison.  If you want to ever make a trek up here for our picnics and zoo trips, visit http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ethiopiaadoptmadison/

We live in Ottawa but would definitely drive to the suburbs for a gathering!  We're (tentatively) scheduled to go get our little 7 mo. old daughter April 8!

We live about 25 minutes south of Peoria, but we go up to the Chicago suburbs often.
