I have to admit, I'm not normally an "artsy" decorator, and this piece feels artsy to me. But I LOVE it!! It's ok if you hate it though - Jason does!! LOL!! Oh, by the way, it's a "piggy" bank in case you can't tell! I haven't decided if it will go right on the dresser or somewhere on the shelves - which I can't find. Yep, I literally cannot find the kind of black shelves I am looking for! I also found a lamp at Target I like, but still wasn't completely sure, so I added to my registry and we'll see what happens! So, the summary is, we have started, but I'm still lost! I am not a wonderful decorator, so I'm just clumsily finding my way!
In case you all aren't counting, we have now been officially waiting for ONE MONTH. I think the best part of this week was that our social worker (L) emailed me. Our certification order came in, so we are officially certified! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, we are going to be good parents because the court said so! How many other parents get to say that?! What was amazing, though, was the empathy that L showed for my impatience. She understood that the wait is hard. She did tell me that they have had some matches lately, so the list is shrinking. She also told me that she has us in mind for a young couple who is looking for a couple who wants a very open relationship and isn't very religious. That's us! Of course, who knows if they would pick us...and they won't be ready to look at profiles for another 4 or 5 months, which means they are very early in their pregnancy. She said she plans on showing us to this couple "if we don't have our baby by then." She also mentioned a couple other birth moms she is considering showing us to. Overall, it's all good news! I just have to learn patience. I hear the wait gets easier after about 2 months...do those of you who are waiting, or who have your babies, agree? Does this ever get easier? I'll update y'all at the two month mark, and let you know if it's gotten any easier for me:).
That is all the updates for now! Keep a close eye out on my blog, as it is getting a MAKEOVER! I am SO excited to unveil the new blog - it is going to be gorgeous! Until then, happy blogging!
