Saying no is hard to do

I received a call from the SW Tuesday afternoon. I figured it was a "just checking on you" call, but she called me to talk about birth mom "M." SW told me some things about "M" that were not very good. I don't really want to go into her issues. We wanted to say yes b/c it seems wrong to say no to a baby that needs a home. I knew in my heart it was not our baby. It was hard to write the SW an email saying we did not feel comfortable sending our book to "M." The good thing about the situation is that the SW picked us instead of "M" having to find us online herself. That made me and B feel really good that the SW is FINALLY advocating for us! Just wanted to give everyone an update...

Painting party anyone?

I'm excited to say we are FINALLY closing next Monday! I've already bought new bedding and accessories for the master and guest room. We FINALLY purchased our baby crib with a matching changing table. The crib came with a free matress - woohoo! Go Wal-Mart! I'm ready to put them together and set up the nursery in the new house.

So we thought we were going to have the handy man paint the house b/c the seller did a shotty job. After seeing it was going to cost $3000 f-ing dollars, we changed our minds! Ridonculous!!! We are now doing it ourselves one room at a time. Anyone want to come to a painting party? LOL

Nothing to update on the adoption. Haven't heard from SW since mid April. We should be getting an update call soon, but I'll gladly take a call from SW about a birth mom! *Keeping fingers crossed and praying constantly!
