Finally....Before & After Pics of the House!

As promised, before and after pictures of our house! It took a lot of hard work, but we are very pleased with our home! Of course, there a few more "finishing touches" but it is beginning to feel like home. Thanks to everyone who helped us, whether it was moving, painting, stripping wallpaper....we couldn't have done it without you!

So good to "meet" you! Thanks for posting on our blog! I've heard so much about you through the Bowmans; it's great to have faces with names now (and another blog to follow)! :) Praying for a smooth court date and travel for you all! You're so close to meeting your precious little one!

Oh my word! You guys worked wonders! I'd say you worked hard. But it's so gorgeous, now. How far are we from each other? And I love little Caleb's room. Courts just about to open. It gives me butterflies just thinking about it for you both! Blessings,
Danielle
