A special thanks
Monday, August 21, 2006
I just wanted to give a special thanks to our friend Lauren. She and her husband Marco are also currently in the process of adopting a child from Russia, although they are a little bit further along than we are. Anyway, she's a avid blogger (you can check out her cool adoption blog here) and is always supportive and helpful to us and other future adoptive parents.

When I was getting going on the painting of the nursery, she was giving us some great online sites with some cool Pooh stuff (light fixtures, etc.). Of course, I started the painting of the room way too early in this process but that's another story.

Anyway, she is such a good natured person (and is obviously going to be a great mom in fact I wish she was adopting me) she painting us a beautiful Winnie the Pooh picture. We just got it today and I just had to take a quick shot and show it off. Except for the painted walls and the crib there's not much in the room to look at so thankfully we now at least have some cool artwork.

    I just saw your comment on Laurens site. Isn't it frustrating while waiting for one little document! Wow, I am impressed that you have the nursery done.
    I look forward to watching your journey, and hoping that the marriage certificates come realy soon.

    What a darling picture, it was so great to have your friend paint an original picture for you.
    I'm happy things are falling in place for you.
