Kacee and I are both planners. News flash, not much about an adoption can be “planned” in the tradtional sense! This whole process has in a lot of ways, been a blessing for the both of us. It is teaching us to enjoy our time together but to bask in our faith that one day, our little one will find their way to us and we just need to let it unravel in its own time, in its own way.
However, there is something we CAN control … something that has helped us to keep the faith, a space that we have created that is already so full of love and optimism, the nursery! We have worked tirelessly to build a space that is warm, welcoming, and a reflection of us. I (Nicole) grew up on the water, meeting Kacee was fateful in that even though she did not have the same occasions as a child, she also loves the water and we both gravitate towards it for our safehaven and time away. We wanted this same sense of peace for our future child and so we picked a nautical theme for the nursery to help us capture these emotions.
Together we turned our vision for this room into a reality – I assembling the pieces (with Kacee and our pup Sami faithfully nearby) and Kacee adding her magic design touches to bring everything together. We find ourselves frequenting this room as our own safehaven and reminder of what is yet to come. From turning on the sound machine, to playing with the monitor (which was EXTENSIVELY researched as one of my most consistent traits, of which Kacee graceful indulges me), to rocking in the chair that my mom bought for our niece which has been passed down to us and is so very special to us. (Side note, my mom passed away of Ovarian Cancer in 2016 but is very much a part of our nursery.) We cannot wait to sit in the nursery while reading books given to us, each containing a special message written inside, to a beautiful future addition to our family.
