"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

BlogHer10 Photo Post - Day 2 through lunch

I have faced a realization. I take a shitload of pictures. In fact, even selecting only the best, I have enough pics from Day 2 that I need to split this into 2 posts. So, drumroll, here's the first half of Day 2 of BlogHer.

At breakfast, we got to meet Bruce Jenner. I have to say he was unfailingly patient and quite willing to take picture after picture. I know that's his job as a spokesman but, I have to say, he does it well.

Between sessions, we had a chance to meet all kinds of cartoon characters from video games and children's tv.

me, Dora the Explorer, Boots, Rys

Lunch was one of the things I was looking forward to the most. I was finally going to meet so many of the ladies in the ALI (adoption, loss, and infertility) community. These are women I have celebrated and mourned with. I have found support and love and acceptance. I have found people who truly grasp what we went through to get my Gabriel here. I know these are just pictures of me with other people but, this is what BlogHer is all about...meeting and connecting with people who inspired you, creating a community in real life as well as online. This is what makes it so special and these are some of the most fabulous people I know.
