Do you know what this stack of papers means?? We sent our dossier off to our adoption agency. It’s gone. This adoption is officially out of our hands. Not that it was ever in our hands to begin with, we know that. God has been in control this whole time and will continue to be. But the headache-inducing paperwork is done and we’re so so glad. I told my friend that I would be so relieved when it wasn’t totally up to us to run around the get all this paperwork together. She replied that sometimes the waiting when there’s nothing for you to do it the hardest part. Probably true. So give me 2 months and I will most likely be complaining that I have no control over this situation and everything and everyone is taking waaaaaaay too long ;). We’re just so excited to meet this little girl, things literally cannot go fast enough at this point.
So now we need to begin the work of getting our house ready for a third member. I think this is going to be one of the most fun parts. We have several rooms that need painted and fixed up. Furniture needs to be rearranged. I have a plan in my head, it’s just going to take a little while to execute it. Our upstairs is going to undergo a pretty big transformation. Basically, the room we use as a giant closet right now is going to be an office/reading/play room. Ha!
I got this cute little stool to start the process. I stumbled on it at HomeGoods. It was the only one there, so I snatched it up! I was at Ikea last weekend and almost bought a little plastic one, and I’m so glad I waited. I love this stool. It’s perfect for our elephant-themed room. I also got some great Ugandan stuff from my friend that I’ll share in a bit.
Well, we’re off to enjoy our weekend without the stress of something hanging over our heads. Yay!!
