Maybe it's just that it's been pouring rain all day, but this crazy process is not my friend today. I hate it! I hate that so much time and so much money stand between me and Art right now. I hate that we have to go to great lengths to prove that we are good people! I hate that we have to eat stroganoff every night and pinch pennies when we were otherwise in a great spot financially. And... why does everything take 2 months longer than you think it will? I know that Arthur is worth all this trouble and I know that I'll get my positive attitude back, but today... just stinks.

It's probably a little soon for this, but we can't wait to put Arthur's room together! Currently his room is still very much the guest room, but we've been picking up things here and there to make it more kid friendly. Aaron and I actually have pretty similar taste which is nice, because we both want to have some say in what his room looks like. Aaron found some great art prints last night, and this train track illustration by Toru Fukuda was my favorite!

Kristyn and Michael brought this little guy home in January. He is adorable! And such a lover! It seems he's adjusting to life in his new home well. We hope to get to hang out with these sweet people again soon! Read more about their story here...

I am loving this adoption community that we've tapped into since we started this journey. I think I've said that before, but it's just so exciting! It's encouraging to find people out there that share our passion for adoption. I just feel we have friends to lean on when things get tough. One of my newest friends, Rebekka, has just announced that they are adopting a little girl from Ethiopia and want to name her Beda! so sweet :) To help raise money, she's making these adorable aprons especially for little girls. Go get one and help bring little Beda home!
