On the Count Down to Fabric Love

I've received a few calls and emails from people wondering what is going on with me and the status of my adoption...basically wth (heck) is going on!  Here's the skinny:

- sitting here (obviously)
- simultaneously finishing my FINAL...repeat after me...FINAL updates (for everything) and DOSSIER! 
- waiting for my fingerprint appointment which is Oct. 28 (I believe)
- believing my dossier will FINALLY be submitted within the next 30 days!  Yes, yuck it up.  

Now I can get my count on.  

Why did I take so long with all of the concerns and changes with singles?  Well, life happens!  I am a firm believer that What God Has For You Is For You.  No, life is never going to be perfect or there is never going to be a perfect time to be a parent, but in my heart of hearts my spirit and my God said peace be still.  I had to be still until I was at peace with whatever came forth in my life (and with the adoption)...

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.  And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and  your minds in Christ Jesus. ”  Philippians 4: 6­7 

Finally, I'm at peace.  Let the wait begin!!!!!

In other exciting, breaking news.  I picked out a fabric for the baby's room, although you have about 6 months of my decor changes...I really like this one.  Fun no?  My mother said "WOW, busy!"  I said, "Of course and fun too!"  You can't have the prima donna II (my family calls me prima donna I) now can you?  LOL

What do you think?   It is a vintage fabric I found for $4!  I love it even if you don't, I've never been one to follow many trends.  It should give you hints at what's soon to come...but if you know some of the hints can you tell me because I honestly haven't figured them out yet.  LOL

I am happy for you that your paperwork is almost done and soon you will be officially waiting.

And I love the fabric - it is unique, non-babyish, and beautiful.

Kristine, I'm going to use the fabric to make window blinds (I have 3 window) with black trim and a light shade! I think I am just going to have enough. However, I did find an online source that can post to find if anyone has this fabric in their personal stock if you are interested. I can sew but I'm trying to decide if I want to risk doing it myself in case of an opps with 0 extra fabric or if I should pay someone to do it. I'm leaning towards getting a seamstress to do it. The fabric only cost $4 I mean how much could it cost. LOL

Haze, I can't tell you how excited I am. Can you believe after 2 years I will FINALLY be officially waiting! Whew! Go sing it on the mountain! LOL

From a fellow waiting mom, I love the fabric. My poor baby is going to have to share her bedroom with big sis though so no big re-dos. :o(

As a shameless self-plug: to raise money, I paint watercolors off of photos from baby bedding. That owl would be TOOOOO cute painted with her name under it. Just FYI. Check out 'art' category on my blog if you're interested.

And congrats!!! We are about 3 months from DTE, I can't imagine being finished!
