My wife and I made the decision to adopt a child early on in our marriage. We went through all of the necessary requirements and are happy to say that our son Josh will be coming home with us next week. We couldn’t be happier. In order to welcome him home with a bang, we want to really decorate our home with things that suggest a party is happening. One of the focal points will be the roll up banners we plan to hang throughout our home.
The first banner will hang over the entryway and say welcome home Josh. This will be the first time he enters his new home, and so we thought it would be appropriate in that location. I can’t wait to see the look of excitement on his face as he comes home. I think it’s going to be a little scary for him at first. I wouldn’t expect anything else. After all, he is just a kid.
Our next banner is going to be hung along the stairway and it’s going to have his favorite cartoon character printed on it. It’s going to have some type of encouraging phrase on it. We haven’t decided exactly what we want it to say. That’s the great thing about these customizable banners. We really have the luxury of creating whatever we want, and the turnaround time on them is just amazing. This company we work with is really good about making sure that orders are always printed and delivered within a reasonable amount of time.
The next banner will be in Josh’s new room. It will simply say welcome home. Our home is now his home. He will now have his own room, which the banner will introduce him to. I think it’s appropriate to play this up with a huge graphic like we are because he’s always had to share a room before. This is something new and exciting for him.
