Nathan and one of my “dads” put together the baby crib this morning!
This was sad since I would have been six months pregnant by now, excepting for the miscarriage at 11 weeks after mom died.
But it is exciting because it was the last thing to do before our final home study.
There is the bottom part still to put in, just popping it on, and we have the crib mattress, but how high it gets screwed in depends on the age of the child – so that part we have to do last minute.
It finally is starting to feel exciting in a good way, and not just a surprise or shock or quick adjustment to our plans.
The conference talk at General Conference about foster parenting and modeling our homes after other Christ-centered homes so that our future families can be different than the past… that was really good and helpful and healing, so we are starting to get excited finally.
No worries, though, as the next support group meeting is next week. I am sure we will get another does of reality then!
