room update









Hello, my friends. We had the home inspection today and all went well. We passed! We have just a little bit more paperwork to do and then we wait for the final approval....hopefully tomorrow! Thank you all so much for your prayers and encouragement. We're almost there!
I've got lots to tell you about all these new details of the room, including lots more gifts from friends to help cozy up the space.

What precious memories you will give the children that get to call your house a home! I pray they will be those that they reflect on fondly even when they find themselves having moved on or grown up. My grandparents were foster parents; I know the children will feel as if they have stepped into a fairy tale. God bless your ministry to these little ones.

Such great news on the home approval front, who wouldn't approve a magical nursery like that? I could so live there :) Wishing you all the best.

Hi Amy~ I've been a reader a long time and love your blog for the colors and inspiration. This room is just outstanding. Your color and decorative choices were truly inspired and look so cheerful and lively. This room will be a wonderful cozy retreat for the kids.

Can I come live with you?! :)

This is a beautiful room for any child and, more importantly, is representative of a beautiful action on the part of you and your husband. Kudos!

It is absolutely every childs dream... a wonderland of sorts! I am still so very interested in knowing more about how you created those houses, as I prepare to paint walls in a new room for our two little girls.

Congratulations again. Your work is going to be so very important. I grew up a child in a very dysfuntional home, and eventually ended up in a foster home. I know, from experience, how much a good*safe*peaceful home can mean to a child caught in chaos. Raising kids is never easy (my husband and I have 5)... and so my heart just about pops when I hear of people wanting to do the right thing for a child in an unfortunate situation. You are just helping to make this world a better place, one child at a time :)

Amy-
That room is just a breath of fresh air! Do you just grin everytime you walk in there. I hope you won't have too long a wait until some very blessed child makes there way into your life.

Jill said...

It's a bright, magical, to-dream-in room! There's a child out there in for the blessing of his/her life with you and Rich - God bless you both for opening your hearts and home.

Susan said...

Oh, Amy! It is just so lovely! You really could do this for people for some big money! I have a feeling my little girl's next room is going to have walls full of hills and houses!

Oh Amy!!!!
You are absolutely brilliant! The room is amazing and so full of love that it is practically bursting! Your new darlings are the luckiest kids in the world and I know you will make a wonderful home for them in every way. Congrats and Happy New Year. It's gonna be great in 2008!

what a dream of a room that is. Just beautiful. Working in a foster care organization is rewarding, but I hear that being a foster parent is the most rewading feeling. The joy outweighs the saddness!

tongue in cheek said...

Can I be your child! What a wonderful welcoming room!
What lucky children to be coming into your home, your heart!

Present Past Collection said...

I'm so very happy for you both! The room looks storybook charming, oh to be such a lucky, lucky child!
Hugs, Heather

DivaDeb said...

You passed...um, Amy, dear, I am willing to bet that you blew the SOCKS off of the inspector when he/she saw that room! I am quite certain no other foster home is such a wonderland for children....

Bless you both for your kind, generous hearts. May blesings abound in your home this year and always.
