Take a looksee …

OK, we’re walking out the door — I got this far with the nursery. Still need curtains and some kind of dresser, but we’re close! Forgot to take a picture of the crib — coming soon.


Cute white letters from Michaels and little wood shapes — did a whirlwind Michaels stop yesterday .. got these flowers too and made a little window box for this mirror (which I’ve had for 10 years at least!)

Room/ceiling are all green, except for the closet wall. We left that beige/tan color — this little shelf and baby’s first year calendar by Sharon Kropp (check out their new stuff while your at it!) along with the window mirror are supposed to tie in the pink and green from everywhere else — at least that’s my hope!
Then there’s the closet — Walmart has these cool canvas bins 2 for $7 — love them. I think I’ve now purchased about 30 for all around my house!

Thanks for all your wishes, reminders and good advice. It’s exciting to realize just how many lives adoption has touched — I’m ready!

    Stacey — I just recently started reading your blog after hearing you speak at CE where you mentioned the addition of your baby girl. I am an adoptee myself (adopted at birth some 43 years ago – Wow) and have been so touched by your journey. What a blessing you and your family will be to little Addie’s life. There is not a more precious gift in the world. Congrats!

  5. I am so excited to see Addie’s room and know how close you are to holding her in your arms at last.
    Beautiful- Simply Perfect!!
    Congratulations to all of you!

  6. Congratulations, Stacy – what a wonderful day you’ll have tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing photos of your little princess!

  7. Oh you happy family! I am so excited for you all. Hugs and prayers — what a lucky little girl!

  8. Stacy, so excited for you. You will be so blessed by what you’re doing for this little life.

  12. so very happy for addie and her new family! prayers and blessings on you all!

  13. I haven’t had a moment to catch up on blogs for a bit, and decided to relish the opportunity and enjoy yours. What a huge occasion today is! I’m also adopted, and am also a birth mother. Adoption has blessed my life twice – and hopefully someday a third as my husband and I begin the adoption journey. I will be thinking of your family this morning and celebrating “Gotcha Day” in my heart and mind. Congratulations!

  14. What a wonderful job you’ve done! Little Addie is already SO blessed!
    Can’t wait to see your first pics of her.

  15. As soon as I woke up I thought about you and how today is the DAY! I wish you such happiness and joy for you and the entire family. It’s a BIG day! Thank you for showing us a peek into Addie’s room. I love those totes and the cute ribbons you used to decorate them! Can’t wait to hear how it goes. :-) {{{HUGS}}}
