As we get closer & closer to this adoption journey - my head is full of thoughts. But I've been so busy I haven't put much thought into a baby's room / nursery. I know we haven't signed up with an adoption agency yet, but we've narrowed it down to two & will make our selection this month! Exciting & nervous?? Yes. Anyway, living in NYC will pose a few challenges when baby enters the picture. Hint: Apt. size.
We currently live in a 2 bedroom apartment - but the 2nd bedroom is my office. I work there every single day...& honestly, not much room for a crib.
So......I was glancing around at nurseries online today for a total of 15 minutes (crazy busy day) - I realized, we may not be able to pull this off, at least not as gorgeous as this one below designed by Sissy + Marley. Something will have to give, right?? I can't say I'm ready to move to Brooklyn or anything - because we love our Manhattan, but we have to be able to make an area for the baby while maintaining some of my office space. Anyone out there currently facing these challenges? Apt. size?? These thoughts have been on my mind the last few days......luckily, we still have plenty of time to think about it - so that's a good thing. Phew.

Sometimes I wonder if it will be a boy or a girl...
Funny, this picture below has been on my hard drive for several months now - I labeled it 'future' - to remind myself of the future God has waiting for us. I pictured myself walking in on my own child as she/he put their toys away. And above her/him would hang one of my Cocoa & Hearts paintings....the art that led to this journey.
