Lamaze, or Lack Thereof

You guys can keep Q in your prayers this week. She had a lot of family pressure over the weekend, and their disapproval of her decision to place the baby for adoption is really stressing her out. Her social worker assured me that she hasn't changed her mind about placing with us. But she is feeling overwhelmed by the lack of family support, on top of the physical discomfort of the last month of pregnancy. I wish I could help her. :( Anyway, as a result of all of that, she did not feel up to going to the Lamaze class last night. I wasn't incredibly thrilled about the class, for the sake of learning Lamaze, but for the opportunity for the three of us to do an activity together in preparation for the birth. And I hoped it would help pass the time for all of us. So we'll see what the next few weeks have in store. We may end up just getting together instead...

On another note, our baby shower was on Saturday and it was wonderful! We had such a good time, and were given soooo many gifts. :) I hope to get the pictures over the weekend, and I'll post them on our Facebook page. :) Until then, I'll leave you with a shot of our daughters room. 

Ridiculous right? lol. What a blessing to have all of this stuff given to us! :) I have been sorting and organizing and trying to get everything in its place, so it looks a lot better today than it did on Monday when the picture was taken. It's so fun to picture myself in the room with our baby, and try to put things where it would make the most sense. I'm thoroughly enjoying myself. :) 


  1. I will pray for her! Hopefully this turns into an opportunity for God's love to shine as she feels the peace God brings. (PS Yay! A baby!!!!)

  2. I continue to pray for Q! I was thinking about how much she needs a good friend right now. Someone to come along beside her, to listen to her, and to hold her hand.
