When should the room be decorated? I already have the bedding/decor sitting in the closet and I have already picked the colors. It is gender neutral. I have already picked out the crib online.
We have not made a match yet but have been officially waiting over 9 months. Agency says to assume two years but of course some go sooner....but everyone who is patient enough will eventually find a match (they also place safe haven babies in my state and the family that has been waiting the longest is asked if they would accept the match first).
Currently nursery is a guest room so not really being used. We only have a small number of guests and also have a futon in the office and a couple of them prefer the couch anyway.
I am thinking I'm ready to decorate maybe this fall/winter when we tend to have the time for a project like that. My mom thinks that is stupid and that we should wait until we get a call and that it will be too hard to see the room. But I almost think it would be harder to see the room that was done for a specific child in mind and than that falls through.
One bonus is if we decorate before a match, we could update the portfolio with a picture of the finished nursery.
So trying to decide if I should go for it early or hold off.........
