Well we are officially open!! We went and signed the final document on Monday afternoon and they even gave us an official plaque to hang on the wall. She said it takes about a day for the paperwork to go through, so yesterday was our first official day to be on "the list"....which also happened to be our anniversary. So that was definitely a special anniversary for us! I've had a ton of fun in our first 3 years of marriage, and I'm excited to see what God has in store for us next!
So what is next? More waiting...yay! The average time for families to get a call is 2-3 weeks, but really there is no telling. In the meantime, I am enjoying being off for a few weeks before I start working HEROES camp that I work at in the summer. We are also working on getting that 2nd room ready. It is all painted and we are just working on filling it and decorating, so I will post pictures when it's ready. If any one knows of a place where I can get yellow/grey crib bedding, let me know :) My cousin was super generous in donating her crib, rocker, high chair, and tons of other things! We are so thankful for her and her desire to care for orphans by supporting us...as well as others who have generously donated their things as well! Again, we could not to this without our community...we are so blessed!
So I guess my next post could be after we have kids in our home...kinda crazy! Talk to y'all soon!
