Moldova adoption movement? Could be soon...

So we received an email today from our agency with what may be good news in terms of bringing home baby sister by autumn (my self-appointed goal, by the way with little to no basis in reality). The gist of the email is that they don't expect any significant movement on us until April or May. I consider this good news because it means something is likely to happen after that. We are one of the first in line to receive a referral once things are all straightened out!! 

So I guess that means it's time to start getting her room ready and stop using it as a catch-all for everything...yeah, gonna be a lot of work. 

You know what though? We picked up the most awesome armoire the other night to repaint and put in her room. Here are two photos: 

And the kicker...we got it out of the neighbor's trash. Obviously Damon wasn't keen on being seen pulling something out of the neighbor's trash, but this was SO WORTH IT!! This armoire is solid wood and weighs at least two hundred pounds! Painted up this will be a great piece for baby sister's room. Along with the headboard and footboard that also need painted for the room. Yep, lots to do. 

Please keep up your prayers for us - we need them!! 

Thank you so much for taking the time to check in on us!

So exciting that things could get moving soon! Nice armoire! When we were prepping Adelise's room before her adoption, I got her toybox out of the neighbors' trash. Thankfully, it weighed much less than two hundred pounds, because there was no way that my husband would have helped me! A bunch of our pre-adoption prep stuff for Isabel also came from our neighbors' trash: a stroller, mega-bloks, clothes even! Gifts from God, I tell you!

I stumbled across your bolg today. Love the furniture!! Good luck with your adoption. I hope things will open up soon for your family. We adopted from Moldova, through CAS, 2.5 yrs ago. I know you are in good hands with them.
