Okay, so since we’ve moved into our place we’ve had a spare bedroom…the trouble is I don’t like it being “spare”. I want to transform it into a wonderful nursery or toddler room, with color splashed here and fabric hanging there! I’ve learned the hard way with Charis, that my calendar isn’t always matching His. My “plan” was to start an adoption when Charis was an infant, and have our two little ones grow up closely together. Now fast forward three years and still we have yet to officially start our adoption! Was it laziness? I sure hope not=-)! Just lots of redirecting from our Lord, a long with a lot of research….and blog stalking! I know we are getting closer to getting things started, but can’t really work much on the spare room yet!¬† Why, you say? Cause we don’t know which child/ren He’s going to direct us too.

Over the past few years, my hearts changed a lot. Babies have always been my nitch! I loved seeing Charis explore everything for the first time (still do!), and was thrilled to make home made baby food, to breast feed, to babywear, and cloth diaper. So naturally I should adopt a baby right? I’ve been struggaling with the thought of only doing an infant-girl adoption for a while now…ever since I read the poem, A Waiting Child (a few posts down)! I’m not too emotional about things, but that poem brought tears to my eyes! So will we adopt a baby? I don’t know. Will we adopt a toddler? I don’t know! Boy or girl or both? I don’t know. The good thing is, my Father does. He knows the tears they’ve shed. He knows the number of hairs on their head! He knows what orphanage they’re at! He knows who their birth parents are….and most of all He knows how to bring us together! So in His perfect timing, I look forward to making that spare bedroom not so spare! Until then I’ll remain busy with my little lady! Since pics are fun, here’s some pics of random fun with our little one!
