Everyone has the same question, when will we go and get her. I wish I knew. I feel more anxious than ever to bring her home but we still have many steps to complete.
Our homestudy update officially begins this Friday when our social worker, Kristen, comes to our home for her first of four visits.
I've been swamped with work and had to focus on that until last Thursday. Finally I was able to begin preparing a comfy room for our new child! It was quite a chore to empty the hobby room of a couple of empty nesters and I have no idea where all that stuff will land but it is very much worth the temporary mess. I've chosen a sherbet green for the walls with accents of hot pink, red and light purple. I got a great buy on just the right bed last Friday. I pray Xin will like it and feel the love that was put into each detail just for her.
