Just thought I'd share some pics of Jude's room. I am not a fan of theme in kids' rooms. But you would never know that seeing this room because I'm afraid I may have gone over the top with the whole African animal vibe! :)
The rocking chair was a resale store find, and the birds I picked up in Ethiopia, but here are the links for everything else.
CRIB. CHANGING TABLE. CRIB SHEET. BEDSKIRT. CURTAINS. CHANGING PAD COVER. CHEVRON PILLOW. ZEBRA CANVAS. ELEPHANT WALL DECAL. BABY QUILT. RUG.
And here's an update for you. There's no update. There was word that we might be submitted to Embassy today, but it doesn't look like that will be the case. Most of our group will be submitted next Wednesday. We might be sooner (we have a medical expedite), but maybe not. So we're sort of thinking next Wednesday. Boo. He's outgrowing his clothes before he even gets home. On the plus side, I'll probably get to buy him a whole new wardrobe when he gets here.
Another update regarding his health: his main diagnosis is brain atrophy. And he's a got a few other little things, like his muscles are sort of like wet noodles. This week we had a neurologist review his MRI and said that we should be prepared for lifelong debilitations, and that his brain damage was 'extensive and significant'. Not what a mom likes to hear. So be praying for my boy and for his brain. Because the God of the Universe is taking care of him and he can heal this. And pray for our strength and courage as we prepare for a special needs baby and all that is involved with that. And pray that we are submitted to Embassy soon because I'm not sure how much more I can take knowing he needs so much and that he's so far away!
