First we want to say thank you for joining us on this journey and praying for us and our future child!
After we are home study ready, we will have to have half or more of our funds to be active. This means that Birthmoms can view our profile and potentially select our family. So we will have to have between $15,000 and $20,000 to become active. Our hope is to be active by the end of Spring.
We have also began preparing a nursery. We had bought furniture for a nursery from people over the last year. We were able to get a dresser, and chest of drawers. We are in the process of refinishing the furniture and doing any repairs that it needed.
Our next project is to refinish the dresser and chest of drawers. They currently look like the picture below but I want to refinish them is the same lighter gray color and get rid of the black top on the dresser.
We used Rethunk Junk by Laura Paint. If you have any furniture you are wanting to redo use this paint!! It is so awesome! It doesn't require any sanding you just spray it down with their prep and wipe it down. On the end table I did two coats one was light and one was dark. The color is Peacock Feather. After that I used a cotton tinted glaze on top and then put tuff top on the top to add the shine and protect it. I am planning to use Driftwood on the dresser and chest of drawers and will post pictures after I finish it.
-Pray that God would continue to provide the funds that are needed. Over the last week or so we have been given some really cool opportunities and news that will provide some extra income. We have also sold several puzzle pieces from our first fundraiser. (see the puzzle fundraiser tab to view the details)
-Pray for our future Birth mother/family. Pray that she would feel peace in her decision making.
