Selah's Room....It Makes My Heart Melt

Selah's room will be my former office space....yes, my coveted office space.  (smile)  It was the place where I hibernate to get work done or when mama needs a little 'time out'.  As I shared before, giving up this space was a big deal for me but one that with God's help, I don't mind sacrificing at all. 

Since the yard sales, I was able to let go of a LOT of 'things' that I've been holding on to for years.  You know those...'one day I might need that' things.  Yet, with each goodbye of an article in that office space, I said 'hello' to making room for baby girl. 

Here's the result....a blank new canvas to create a feel of home for a little girl without one.  It warms my heart every time I walk past her 'space' with anticipation that one day a heartbeat, laughter, kisses, and hugs will fill this space and a family will be forever changed.

So sweet!!! I have enjoyed reading your blog so much. We are also a Lifesong family adopting a little girl from Ethiopia. Actually, I see from the Lifesong page that we had Both Hands fundraisers on the same day. How did yours go? We are Manley and Rebekka Seale, a few families underneath you.

We will be praying for you and your sweet family...a very good-looking family if I do say so myself!!!
