Kids Room Inspiration

We’re waiting on an official invite from IBESR. That’s the next step in our adoption process.


Lifeline families adopting children from “our” orphanage are required to travel together in groups now, and the next group trip will *probably* take place in late January and/or early February.

If we get our invite in time to board that plane, we’ll head to Haiti to bond with our babe! If not, we’ll hop on the next one. (Maybe March?) Either way, we both feel sure that God’s got this thing- and we’ll be there with bells on whenever the time is Right.

Fellow adoptive mamas: this process is such a Mysterious one, isn’t it? You step in and hand over your heart. You squeeze your eyes shut and pray- give thanks and ask for guidance. You watch the highlights and shadows drift and dance from week to week…month to month…year to year.

This week, I’m painting planks by the pine tree that’s (still) on my porch. Next week? Who knows- I may be blogging about a trip to meet a toddler! :-)

    I have seen a chandelier like the one in the “dodgers” bunk bed photo….in Auburn…..It is wonderful….it was a few months ago…but if you are looking for this….I will run by and see if it is still there….pricy….but I bet you know how to get a bargain… ;-0) Let me know….

    Joy. :) I didn’t adopt (I went through fertility treatments which is it’s own journey). But this sentence, “You step in and hand over your heart. You squeeze your eyes shut and pray” pretty sums up every single day since the moment I first held my precious baby. He’s a toddler right now and it is just like watching my heart walk around on two little legs. It is terrifying and glorious all in the same beat. I can’t wait for you to know this feeling. :) Best wishes.

    I love looking at all of these beautiful and fun kids rooms. Your little one will love his or her new space. My littlest one is getting her big girl room soon. Thanks for some inspiration.
