Last week, my parents brought the cradle to our house. I was so excited to see it placed in our nursery. It actually brought tears to my eyes. Later on in the week, I walked by the nursery and as I do quite often, stopped to peek in and daydream of the day when a baby would be sleeping softly in that room. I walked in and looked in the cradle and saw something that made me smile. It was not empty. My husband had placed two beloved stuffed animals from his youth in the cradle. We cannot wait to see those stuffed animals in a pair of small hands. We are still waiting to hear if we were chosen for either of the adoption situations I recently posted. As we wait we have visions of that wooden cradle and those two stuffed animals being used and loved by a very special and long awaited baby.
Here are some pictures of that cradle. And hopefully very soon, we will be posting even better pictures with this cradle doing its intended job of holding a precious little one.
