october number and nursery update

 Well, it wasn't as good as I had hoped ... for the second month in a row we only moved one spot. So now we're number...
I find myself getting frustrated with how long this is taking. We were told when we got on the waitlist that it would be 4-6 months until our referral. It's been seven. This week we were told that the new estimated waitlist time is 10 months... which means we've got 3 more to go. So, unless there's a miracle we won't be seeing a picture of our son by Christmas. My birthday is January 4th... a referral would make a nice birthday present! :)

In the meantime, we're still finishing the nursery and this weekend Tucker's grandparents bought his crib bedding! It is SO CUTE!! See for yourself...

(that's pumpkin saying, "I'm here waiting for you Tucker... I've checked under your crib and it's the best place to take naps!"


Here's one with the super fluffy and adorable comforter....


And here's one of the inside of the crib... can you tell what's missing... 
... Tucker. 

In the meantime I've been creating away so check out my shop Poppie Lane for some adorable accessories! I've added some new things - ALL profits go to bring Tucker home! :)

Tucker's nursery is soooo cute!!! Love the bedding! Hey remember to stay positive. God is Good. One spot is better than none <333

Natalie said...

oh it looks so sweet. I'll be praying that God works a miracle and bumps you up many spots next month. Stay strong in Him and lean on Him for comfort in this hard time of waiting!!!

Ashley said...

The nursery is so cute!!!

I'll be praying for you!

I know, that waitlist is CRAWLING along, isn't it? I'm sure it's especially frustrating when you began the process with a way different time frame in mind. They told us 10 months when we signed on, so we're ready for it :-)

Leigh said...

Praying, I know you are so ready to see your sweet baby! His nursery is precious and perfect! I love it!

Heather said...

It looks sooo good! I need a soft crib sheet like that for Christian...heck, I need soft sheets like that for me!!!

Alison said...

Love the nursery!! The new bedding is so precious! Praying that ya'll get a referral much sooner than you think! And my birthday is Jan.5th! One day after yours! :) (It's kind of hard to have a bday that time of year b/c everyone is kind of tired from all the holidays and new years, etc. And nobody wants to eat cake b/c they are all on a diet!) :)

you're oh so close! hang in there! we're not yet on the waitlist, but will be soon and i've gotta say number 7 looks pretty nice in comparison to 50 something we'll be sitting at! so enjoy that number 7 because before too long it'll be number 1! super cute nursery!

Kristin said...

I'm sorry you've had to wait so long! My fave quote: "God is never in a hurry, but He's always on time!" I know that doesn't make you feel better when you're having to wait though!! Oh I LOOOOOOVE his bedding!!! I want to crawl in there and take a nap, it looks so soft! Haha!! I love the giraffes!

Franchesca said...

I'm so sorry the wait is taking so long!! I sure hope you do get that referral by your birthday :) Our God can do miracles.

Oh, and the nursery set... lovely. The SAME one I have for Bubby! <3

Love to you

Wild and Precious said...

awesome AWESOME nursery! so cute!

praying you jump 6 numbers this month!!!

I don't really understand the number thing... but i'm assuming 1 is best! so i'll just pray for the best!

Penny said...

I hope your adoption process hurries up so you can be with your sweet baby! He's going to be one lucky kid!

erica said...

Beautiful nursery! How exciting to have it completely decorated! We can't really do much yet, because we don't know yet if we'll get a boy, a girl, 2 boys, 2 girls, or one of each! We don't know if he/she/they will be a baby or a toddler! But that's kind of fun too. We'll be SURPRISED, and then we'll have to hurry up and get a room ready after we get our referral.

Blessings while you continue to wait!

Leah said...

Tucker's nursery look so plush and cute! I pray that he comes home soon!

Critty said...

I am sorry my friend that the number did not go down significantly...just think though...God is preparing your son right now...just in thinking of Him...or in the womb or just born. Just the right time will come and you will get the call. Until them I am praying for you and John <3

The nursery just keeps getting more and more adorable!

Jenny said...

Venessa said...

Very cute nursery! I love the look of it! I sorry that it is frustrating...I find myself very frustrated at times too. Saying a prayer for all of you!

Amy said...

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Tuckers room!!! So sweet and perfect for him. I keep meaning to tell you that there is a street near our home called "Tucker Dr." Everytime we drive past it, I smile and pray for YOUR Tucker. I am praying we get our referrals by Christmas and who knows, may be we will get a miracle! Hang in there!
Love,
Amy

Such an adorable nursery. Hang in there sometimes waiting is the toughest part. That little boy will be one lucky little guy.

Monika said...

wow, number 7, it´s great!!! I know, waiting is so long, but when you will hold Tucker in your arms...it will be so wonderfull and you will forget for waiting :-)

Betsy and the Boys said...

Hey now! I'm # 7 on the girl list and totally expecting a referral before the end of the year! (: Of course, I'm coming at it from a different perspective, I was told 10 months from the start, and it's only been 8.5, so from where I'm sitting things are right on track! Maybe we'll be travel buddies!
Blessings in the waiting!
