A pink room and LOA signed

Last week, Maggie's room was finally painted a perfect shade of sweet pink. I love how the color is very subtle, but still very pink !

We got the baby bed out of storage, the boys helped put it back together and set it up. Her room is finally coming together ! I will post more pictures of it later. I am hoping to get an artist to paint her name above the crib.

Last week we also signed some very important papers from China - The LOA (Letter of Acceptance). Chuck and I both signed the paper saying that "yes" we officially accept Maggie's referral. We then sent the LOA back to our agency, and they sent it back to China. Now, our TA (travel approval) can start to be processed. We are tentatively traveling to get Maggie in December. I can't think of a better Christmas present !

Yay! One big step closer to China :)
Her room and bedding are beautiful! Have you thought about vinyl letting for her name? It is easy to order from many etsy stores,and comes in many sizes and styles, and colors, and probably a better price than having it painted.

What fun!! Love the soft pink walls and the bedding looks beautiful. Did you make it? That blue fabric is to die for....

I can't wait until we get our LOA. Your time is coming soon!!Can't wait to see Maggie in her bedroom.

Well shoot!! If the sweetie that did our wall art for Bella's room hadn't went back to college for the winter I would have your artist. She was fabulous, could paint anything.... free handed. Just amazes me to see people with such talent. Speaking of talent, you did a great job on the dress for Operation Giggle. We are tickled to death with how God has provided for all those little angels at New Day. Thanks again for doing it!

Maggie's room is pretty in pink. Did it seem more real once you saw the crib in her room? Wow, won't be too much longer now! Yippee!!

Talk to you soon!! :-)

So exciting! I bet it is feeling more real now that you can see the baby bed and her room. The pink looks great, so girly. Abbie's room is pink too.

Tami said...

Each step is making it more and more real, isn't it??!! Love the pink!!! Yes....couldn't think of a better way to spend Christmas than in China...or better yet home with your sweet Maggie.

Thank you for your prayers and words of encouragement. God's Word has been our source of hope and strength. Thank you for sharing what He put on your heart for us. We're praying for all those waiting for the TA now too!
