More on the Big Reveal

Vanessa Brown is our sweet friend that nominated us for our makeover.  She recently blogged here about the experience and included some more pictures and a fun video of the big reveal when the boys were shown their new room.  I hope you take the time to check it out and leave her some comment love.  She is amazing and we are so thankful for all she did to make it happen for us.  She is a busy mom of three little ones and a pastor's wife so she sacrificed so much time and energy on our behalf and we are blessed!

The Big Reveal

We are so amazed and blown away about what God did in our home through our incredible friends this week.  They so selflessly and tirelessly served us and the result is beautiful:) Lauren Mendenhall is the talented and wonderful designer that gave her time and talents to this project.  She posted some of her thoughts and pictures of the before and after on her blog.  So check out Amen Life + Style Inspired Design blog.

**I do have to add a slight addendum to Lauren's blog post.  We do NOT have our referral yet.  We have requested two children with the younger hopefully being a girl.  The babies home from which we are adopting normally only takes children up to 3 years of age.  So in planning the room Lauren did plan for an infant girl and a toddler boy.  We do pray that we will have our referral by the end of the year but the timing is certainly the Lord's!  But praise Jesus we are now ready, ready, ready for both of them:)**

I will post a link to Leading and Loving It when Vanessa posts about her perspective as well.  And soon I will post more on our thoughts.  I am pretty consumed with trying to move back into the two rooms.  It is requiring lots of organizing, shifting, dumping and rearranging.  It will be a process!  I am also packing because while Mark is away in California for training, Mom, Dad and I are headed to Atlanta on Wednesday for Catalyst!  I am super excited:)  God is heaping some extra special blessings on my plate these days and I am thankful!
