The dresser we've had (thanks Auntie May May!), and I found this lovely crib on Craigslist for $100. After some research I discovered that the original price (new) of this crib was $650! The changing table new was $100, and we found it (again on Craigslist) for $40. Isn't that exciting?! This isn't the arrangement of the room - just the only way I could fit all the furniture in the picture :) We also aren't decorating at all for a while, so this is it for the baby room pictures for the time being.
I had my first dream about the baby. I've had dreams about the process, about stumbling blocks, and about scams - but never has the baby been a character in my dream until now. In this dream, the baby was a boy. He was about a year or so - and he was walking. He had dirty blond hair, and looked very mischievous. Some man I don't know, walked him into my apartment and said "Here is your son." Jon picked him up, and then I woke up. I'm sure it means nothing, but it was nice.
We have our first interview with our social worker a week from tomorrow, which is both amazing and terrifying. I'm sure everything will be fine, I just have so terrifying thoughts about how things are going to go. I'm also sure that every adoptive parent goes through that.
So that's all for now. I'm sure I'll have plenty more to say next week after our interview!
