In December, I decided to slowly start buying stuff for Ade's room. I didn't want to buy too much until we had passed court but I was starting to look.
If you remember from this post we had, by way of an accident at a work function and a gift from fabulous friends, decided to do a giraffe theme for our, then unknown, kidlet.
Well, I happened to be on Etsy and found a fantastic baby blanket called "Moon Reach" and I couldn't turn it down. (Alright, I probably could have but I didn't want to.)
So, I took a leap of faith and ordered one and had her add Ade's name on it so that it would be a keep sake for him when he was older (both Yvan and I still have our cuddle blankets from when we were babies).
It came in the mail about a week after we found out there was some paperwork problems with Ade's file and they weren't sure what the outcome would be or if we would be able to bring him home.
I cried for my boy and put the blanket away deep in the back of a closet so I couldn't see it or remember it.
Today, I pulled it out and we are going to finally start on his room...
..and it will have Giraffes in it ...
...and one day, in the not-so-distant future, that room will have Ade in it too...
...cuddled-up, sleeping under this blanket, dreaming of reaching for the moon.
