I have heard wonderful things about this book. Yesterday, I ordered it for Leah. I can't wait to get it and read it. Have you heard about this book? Have any other great Korean book ideas for kids?
I am really really wanting to order Leah's room things, like her crib, changing table, rocking chair, and baby bedding. I just keep looking over sites, picking out different bedding that I like. I think I have decided her room colors will be light pink and light green, with maybe some hot pink thrown in there. I am trying to think of things to do to keep me occupied during this wait. I think decorating her room is a great idea, but I am trying so hard to wait until referral. I suppose it may make me sad to have this wonderful room all ready, with no baby to sleep in it. I wish I could sew or knit so I could make her something. Maybe I need to check out a class on that. Well, I have taken a knitting class before, and I am not very skilled. My scarf looked kinda pitiful. Any ideas on good things to do during this wait?
I would love to learn some Korean, but am not sure where to start. I guess I could start gathering the gifts I will need for her foster parents and others when I do travel. (which feels at this point like that will be years away....)
I am actually starting to go a bit nutty. As in, second guessing the pictures I sent to Korea of our family. Wishing I would have scrapbooked them and thinking I will not be matched with a baby very quickly because my pictures are not super amazing looking. This is nutty, I know. Oh and people need to stop calling me with the area code of our social worker. I about hyperventalated yesterday when her area code popped up. I was thinking "this is it." Then: big let down.
So those of you waiting, how are you holding up? I am excited for the many referrals and dossier's that have gone to Korea this past week. It is fun to watch adoption progress!!
