Today I got to spend the day with my mom shopping for baby stuff.  It was such a fun exciting day for me.  A day I never thought would happen for me.  I never thought the day would come that I would get to shop for MY baby.  Yes I know that we have not been placed yet but at the end of the day we do need to get ready for that phone call.

This is a big step for me.  I had put up such a wall  that I wouldn't allow myself to feel those type of things.  We had a nursery totally done and I couldn't even have the door open to it; was to hard to see.  It was full of heartache not hope and joy.  I wouldn't let myself think that this would ever happen for us.  That we would have the joy of a baby in the house and our lives.  Finally I realize it is going to happen and that we are going to have a family.  We are going to be happy.  Yes there will be problems and hard times but it will happen. 

I was able to get some great things to have for "that" phone call.  I got a great travel system on clearance at Toys R Us where I can get the bases for the other cars.  So I am able to get the system and 2 bases for the cost of 1 system we picked out.  Lots of other good stuff to have on hand for a few days at home and until we have a shower.

So now all we need is a baby!  I know that it will come in God's time.  he has had a plan for us from day 1 and it will happen when things are right and ready!  I have decided to take a few other "waiting" mom's and I am going to use that room as a prayer room and in time it will be blessed!

Please keeps us in your thought and prayers you just even know when that call will come.

Thanks so much!

  1. Wonderful! It is hard to shop when we are waiting, but you are right, we have to be faithful and trust God that we will get to use this stuff! Thats so cool about the travel system- I am jealous haha! I keep watching for ours to go on sale :( It never does. I too use our nursery for prayer and reflection- although ours isnt set up, its just all the furniture in a jumble and the little bit of baby stuff in a basket! I think your faithfulness is great, and its great your mom could be there with you for support.
