Lots of commotion around the Dalton household over the last day or so, and probably the next several. We have officially began putting together the nursery :) Yesterday consisted of lots of heavy lifting; we swapped furniture from the office to the guest bedroom, and what was the office, is now being transformed into the nursery. Then we headed over to our nearest Lowe's and starting looking at paint colors.
Leslie has had some great ideas for color, decor, etc. and from the looks of it, it's going to be awesome! As I type this, she is at home painting (say a little prayer for her). She's doing giraffe spots on the one wall, and green on the other three. Then she's going to spell out his name real big in orange over the crib. I can't wait to see the end result!!
We should be going to meet the birth mother for the first time in the coming weeks, and I'm really hoping we can show her some pictures of the little guy's room! Out attorneys are in the process of working that out. Given her situation, there are a couple extra steps, involved, but we should be nearing the end of it. Next Tuesday we have to sign some documents, and following that, we should be good to go.
Please continue to keep Amber (birth mother) and our precious little boy in your prayers. Pray there kept warm at night, and there tummies are full, and more than anything, someone is sharing the gospel with her (or at least reminding her). We'll know more about her after our meeting, but for now, just be in continual prayer. We love you all so much!!!!
