So, of course my mind has been in a million places the past few days....I thought the most difficult part of this journey would be waiting for "the call." And, now I'm thinking that these next six weeks (or fewer if baby girl decides she wants to meet us sooner) are going to be the most challenging part of this journey. It has been hard to find a balance between joy and reservation. I'm thinking my faith is about to be tested in ways I have never known! Honestly, my mind is mush right now...The only thing I know to do is to let go...to trust God has His hand on every step...believe He will carry us through every day until our adoption is finalized...and cling to His truth:
"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28
It is looking like we will have to wait until next week to meet our birth mother parents (we found out today the birth father wants to meet us as well) due to a conflict in the caseworker's schedule. :( So, this weekend we are going to focus on the nursery. Below are a few pics which inspired me...
Where do I even begin with this room?? I *love* the different shades of khaki and brown w/ white, I'm kind of obsessed with the chair, and I love the two-tone wall colors! This is how I want our flooring to look. We (with a little help and guidance from our handy friends) will be doing this ourselves to save $$. I can't wait to post the result pics! Also, we are going to do our walls two-tone like this accept the bottom half of the wall will be a light gray.
