We ran away for a long weekend. We seldom go any where on a holiday weekend. We went to a camping trip JUST for adoptive families.
If you live in TX and are an adoptive family then mark your calender and contact COAC and plan on coming next year. It was GREAT! We had about 20 families, all adoptive. All, I think, from the foster care system. It was nice to have a group of people that get the issues that are dealt with on a daily bases.
The camp was at Lake Whitney. I had never been to the state park there, but would recommend it. It is a very big park with lots of spread out camping areas. Most of the slots are large and noise level is very low.
Lake was very rough. I wouldn't have wanted to be in a boat. The waves coming in were very much like ocean waves.
DH's sister and BIL came out for the day on Sat. They are "watching" the kids play in the surf.
