Room for Hope

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend!

Well, we made two important decisions over the last few weeks. First, we decided on a name. It was a struggle between Hope and Violet, but Hope came out on top. The middle name is still TBD, but it will be an Ethiopian name.

We also got started on the nursery. After testing a number of pinks and greens on the wall, we decided that pink looked best. I have attached pictures of the room and our bedding. It looks pretty barren, but the furniture should be arriving soon.I'm also going to attempt to paint a tree on one of the walls. I saw it in a PB Kids catalog and loved the look. If all goes well, I will post the finished product (if not, there is a lot of pink paint left).

I love the color. It took us weeks to find the right pink.
Maybe your baby Hope will be from Hope for the Abandoned orphanage. I have two Hope braclets and a Hope key ring because Gabre was from Hope orphanage.
I really like the new blog.
