Lady Bug Dreams

We, like so many others, have embarked on a journey, that has us swinging between hysterical laughter to tears of unknown. But we are doing it.....

Lost Referral

The shipping company (DHL) has lost the package containing 64 of the 90 referrals. Some people received the info on their daughters yesterday, but NOT us. I won't even try to express what we are going thru right now. We are at a loss for words.

STORK ALERT- the bird is in the air!

We just received a "stork alert" from our agency. The paperwork for our referral has left China and is on its way to US. It should arrive Mon/Tues. We will get "the call" probably Mon pm/Tues am with all the info (age, picture, location etc). I can not put into words how excited John and I are. Our baby girl is just half a world away and getting closer!
Fly birdie fly!

She is COMING!

We will be receiving our referral in the next few days. We are so very excited to be able to see her picture. I can't wait to put my arms around her and bring her home. We love her already!

New Nursery - the closet



The closet is larger, so now we are able to hang all her clothes. I organized the shelving with ClosetMaid products - so we got optimum space. Same chair/rug. We have more floor space to play now.

New Nusery - Same dresser/changing table




We kept the same changing table and made a new shelf to match what we had in the old nursery. So we are now set to receive our daughter, again.

New Nursery - New Crib



Well, we moved the nursery into another room. It is larger and if you compare pictures, we have used the same colors. One thing you will need to note: the crib is also new (our old one was new also) so now we have two cribs, the older new one had issues when we took it apart, we ordered new hardware and a recall retro fit kit for it, but it was going to take 4 - 6 weeks for it to arrive and my bride was not about to let that hold her up on finishing the nursery again. So if anyone is in the market for a 10 month old crib, never been slept/sat on look in older photos - make you a deal.
