Andrew and I are so excited, and can't wait to finally hold that little baby in our arms! Please continue to pray for us as we wait for the baby to be born. Pray for the Birth Mom as she has makes this decision. Pray for a healthy delivery, and a healthy baby boy. Pray that the 5 days we wait to go pick him up, will go by quickly, with no incident. And pray that we come home with our son. Thanks so much for all of your prayers and encouragement.

The furniture is from JC Penny's. I have looked everywhere for a standard crib, and I finally found one I love at penny's. We are going to get it in the Cherry color, which is shown in the bottom two pictures.
As far as other decorations go, I haven't really decided. I know we will be adding a rocker/glider to the room, but still haven't found one that we like. We want it to be comfortable, but we also want it in leather. I also need to find some curtains that I like.
So, what do you think? Cute, huh? I'm just so excited to get the baby home! One month from tomorrow is the due date!

June 13th - Homestudy officially approved.
June 25th - Got the CALL! A birth mother has chosen us to be the parents of her baby boy.
August 10th - Due Date for our little boy!
Everything moved so fast, but worked out better then I could have planned. We know this is what God's plan is for our lives right now. Who else could have orchestrated everything so perfectly.
Please continue to pray for us as we wait for our son to be born. Please pray for the birth mother as she makes this decision. We will be traveling to Alabama to pick him up 5 days after he is born. The birth mother is given 5 days to change her mind. I know those will be the longest 5 days of my life.
We are so excited about becoming parents, and can not wait to meet our son!!
