3 word Sunday



With every passing day, it is sinking in... that it's only a matter of weeks before we see our 3rd child. It gives me chills!

We've decided that if we haven't sold the house, by the time we have to travel, we'll take it off the market. We don't NEED to sell, but would obviously LIKE to so we can get on with being "country folk"! I was just thinking as I posted this photo - this isn't the room, she'll be in. Its a teeny tiny room, and obviously smaller furniture (like a cot!) makes it look a bit bigger than it is! I was thinking, IF we do take it off the market - I'll need to do some furniture rearranging! Mini's room, is currently the "Guest Room" and has a queensize bed in it. We said to Miss M, when we bring Mini home, she can have the QS bed... so it's just dawned on me... we need to take that apart and move it! You can tell I do alot of my thinking, out loud, here on blog, right?!

Anyway, we're still praying we'll get a buyer in the next couple of months. Nothing like moving house, right on Christmas and in the throws of organising an overseas trip to adopt a child, to keep a marriage alive!

So if 3-4 weeks or 7-8 weeks, we'll see a little face, that we've been dreaming about since Sept 2004.

Mike and Rhonda said...

So glad that you are getting closer and closer. Yes, be prepared for anything - I know that is hard to do. We did not put either gender on our app, dossier or HS. Not that we cared but our SW said to put Female because they never refer health boys!!!! So you can imagine our shock.

He is adorable and we cannot wait to kiss those adorable cheeks! But it was a shocker!

Jenn said...
