My friend Pat in Miami is quite oblivious to the parade of tropical storms and hurricanes paving their way toward South Florida right now. She and her husband just met their new son, Max Han Fu in Xi'an, China. They'll be posting pictures soon, but if you'd like to follow their story, click here.
Pat and I met through a writer friend of mine, Stephanie. A while back Steph hooked us up so that we could vent and complain to each other during the long China referral waiting process. For over a year, we chatted via email. Lazily, we left the subject line, "I got your email address from Stephanie." Last May, Pat said, "I was thinking I'd change the subject line, but let's not do a thing until one of us gets a referral. One day, there was a message from Pat: "The Subject Line has Changed." She had information and pictures of little Han Fu waiting in Xi'An.
We hope to meet -- with our new families -- one day in person. For now, we're part of the psychic friends network.
