The bedroom is not quite ready yet but I will share photos some day. Alan has finished one picture and is moving on to number two in the series. We still need to touch up the paint and paint Colin’s name above the crib.
It is official…today I was driving back home from getting my hair cut and I realized that I have the “baby boy blues!” I miss our sweet baby whom we were just getting to know in the three brief visits we had with him over 2 months ago. I long to hold him and comfort him and witness various moods (yes, even crankiness!) and to know that when it is all said and done he is our little boy to care for and love forever.
I have the “baby boy blues” because we still have no indication of when we will get our Petition to Court and the family who went before us from our agency still doesn’t have theirs either…I’m praying that they will receive their Petition soon. I’m praying that we will get to return for our children before the end of the year…
And you can see by some of the blue in the photo’s background that our world is literally shades of blue because many of our clothes for Colin are blue. In this photo, you see the snowsuit we have for Colin. It is already dropping to the 40s-50s (maybe even colder!) in Russia so Colin will need this to keep him extra warm.
We have ordered a baby board book which we were able to design with photos from meeting Colin on our first trip and with text we wrote (in Russian with the help of a friend from Mt. Hermon Baptist Church in my hometown). We are so excited about sending this book with a couple who are returning in October (God willing) to Russia for their little girl who lives in the same orphanage as Colin. We are praying that they will also be able to take some photos of Colin and get updated measurements for him.
