One Week Down!

So many people have been asking if we have learned anything new on the adoption front. Thank you SOOO much for asking and caring but we have not learned anything yet! I have been trying so hard not to stalk the ladies at IAN, but it is tough....I can hardly stay focused on my regular life. Tried to make a killer schedule this week so I would not think about it too much, but still I think about it..A LOT!
WE have been officially in the #1 spot for about 9 days. I did have a dream last night that we got "THE CALL"..So hoping that dream comes true really soon. In my dream we actually were referred a toddler girl, which I was surprised by, but I am open to whatever God has in store for us.
Have really been thinking lately a lot about older kids who need to be adopted. It is really messing with me. It is so sad to think about what they go through as they wait for homes. Who knows, maybe that will be our next step! I am not convinced that I will be a great mom to SEVERAL kids....Might just be Bianca and Little Miss Sunshine...who knows.
I hate it that adoption is so expensive...Breaks my heart really and I wish that would change...Of course, then the Becking's would be mistaken for the old woman who lived in the shoe...with so many kids she did not know what to do!
I did make a purchase last week...I bought a new crib/toddler bed and chest of drawers for Little Miss Sunshine's room...My mom-in-law is an awesome interior decorator and she did such a fab job on Bianca's room, and she is doing it again for LMS...It is really going to be awesome!
Can't wait to show you the completed project...Here is a pic of the stuff I bought...This is not the bedding just a stock photo...And below is the rocker I would like...We are going to likely recreate it with louder fabric.

Much Love

I am so excited for you! Do you have LMS furniture already? Or is it going to be shipped? Cannot wait to view the final project. LOVE the rocker too! looks comfy. I bought on similar when we were in KC last but it is a swivel/ glider vs rocker. I am so excited to have a little someone to rock! Praying this is your week for referral to LMS!!!
