My wonderful girlfriends Sharon, Bev, Alli, Erin and Erika (all from my Bible study group at church) hosted a big homecoming/baby shower for Aster at our house this past Saturday. We were lavished with love and gifts, but the best gift of all was having so many friends stop by to meet Aster and celebrate our precious little girl with us!
My friend Alli’s friend Laura, who I met an a nail salon, gave Aster her kid’s almost new soft plush rocking snail. It is adorable! Thank you Laura.
Aster’s Room ~God’s sweet gift to me and my little girl!
When we started our adoption process two years ago we prayed long and hard about moving. We loved our old house but we needed room from more. Right when the market was crashing God sold our house in 21 days and led us to this one. When we found the house we now live in (which was a model home), it was completely decorated with a beautiful princess room. Even the window treatments were here! My friend Pam loaned me that beautiful crib that looks like it was made for this room. All I added was the pink princess fluff!
As I showed Aster’s room to my friends, I shared with them how we are going stencil one of my favorite verses inside that diamond ring above the bed. It’s going to say ~ “You will be a crown of splendor in the Lord’s hand, a royal diadem in the hand of your God. Isaiah 62:3”
My friend Jodi is giving me the gift of painting Aster’s dresser to match the crib. Won’t that be so pretty? I love, love, love this room. Sometimes I just go up there and lay on one of the beds and pretend I’m the princess!
