For the last 2 months of being MIA on this blog we have been consumed by all things relating to The Adoption. It has been stressful and scary at times in the process but more importantly very exciting and fun! I am so happy to say how accomplished I feel at the amount of progress we have made in two short months. We have completed all our paperwork and are half way through our home study! Next Saturday our home study will be complete and by the end of March we anticipate “going live” which is adoption speak for officially approved and out there in the world to adopt a baby.
You may have read my previous post on the adoption questionnaire we were each required to answer. It was interesting to read the differences between my husband and I in our responses. He was short and to the point, I was ummmm…the opposite. I was skeptical and frustrated if you couldn’t tell but that is all behind us and once I got past being overwhelmed I was able to enjoy the process.
I have been dying to post all the pictures of the nursery/kids guest room so far. I wanted to have a room all of my little nieces and nephews could stay in when they visit and have the necessary nursery things just in case the baby comes sooner rather than later (I just want to be prepared!)
My 18-month-old niece MacKenzie will be coming with my sister in April so she will get to be the first to break the room in, I’m very excited for their visit. The room isn’t quite done yet. I need to frame a couple of the prints and put cute children’s books on the shelves instead of the ugly baby tutorial books.
The room is intended to be gender neutral and we wanted color in the room without having to paint the walls. Maybe when we actually find out if we are getting a boy or girl we will paint the walls too.
Without further ado, here are the pics. Let me know what your favorite parts are! What else do you think it needs? Other than an actual baby to go in it, haha!
