The Room

People have been asking to see our wee boy's room.

I've been waiting to post pictures because I didn't want to do it until we were absolutely certain we were bringing him home.

We are sure now.







The color is called "Raw Steel" by Cloverdale - because some have asked...

The Map of Africa with the cut out of Ethiopia I got from Peel Monkey

The animals of Africa I got from Etsy

The most excellent wall hanging with Ade's name on it is a gift from my very good friend Krista! She made it for us!

We had so much fun doing his room - we didn't want to go overboard because in the future we want him to decide how we wants his room to look but for now Mom and Dad get to be the designers.

The only thing that will make that room more perfect is having Ade sleeping in that great crib!

It does not look like you will be running out of diapers or clothes for Ade anytime soon either!!!

I've been reading your blog for a long time now but don't comment. I just had to tell you how happy I am for you. 20 years ago I was madly packing to go get my daughter in Romania. That feeling is awesome and you will remember it always.
Congratulations!
