Not flesh of my flesh, nor bone of my bone; but, still miraculously, my own.
Never forget, for a single minute you didn't grow under my heart, but in it.

Nov 13 Update on Journey to Noah!

Hi All :)

Just thought I would update on things in the Journey to Noah. First off I got some records today and on Oct. 26 when Noah was seen by the doctor they said that " Currently he can roll over, likes to push himself up and look around, he loves to interact with others, loves to laugh and talk, he can hold onto something and stand up, and loves to grab the toys which are hanging over his head"!!!!!!!! :) Is that not totally amazing! :) My sweet baby boy! That doesnt sound too developmentally delayed to me! I had no clue he could do so much :) We are working really hard to earn the home study and clearance fee money quickly and the adoption fees. Today they told us that things in Taiwan have moved very quickly for a couple with another special needs baby. They got approval less than a month after the dossier went to Taiwan!! :) So they said to get ready, things may go quicker than the 4 to 6 months. She said once we have the home study the dossier wont take very long, especially since we are workin on some of the papers jointly. Anyways, please continue to be in prayer for funds and such. God is so blessing. We have sales coming through on homeschool books we have been given, we have donations coming in from people we have not even met! :) I just found out that if people want to donate directly to our International agency in our name for Noah's adoption, that they can send them something so that folks can take donations off their taxes! That is amazing! :) They say some will be more likely to want to donate if it is tax deductible :) We found out today we also have to pay a $250 application fee NOW. They are holding Noah for us but we need that NOW! So PRAY that we can earn that in addition to homestudy money quickly, but folks have been so generous and homeschool books selling and things that I am not worried. Just waiting for God to show off more! Once we get the application and the application fee in we can apply to the board of directors for a grant towards Noah's main adoption fees. Praying this works out as well! :) God is soo good!!! :) Please also if you know anyone who might be interested in buying some homeschool books, some sci fi/fantacy/adventure books, please share with them that we are selling these for the baby fund and put them in touch with us! :) Please share the prayer needs with everyone you know and also if anyone you know might feel led to donate, they can contact VAL at Heartsent Adoption Agency ( VF Jubilee @ but remove the spaces around the @ sign.) and tell her the donation is for the Sisemore's Adoption of Noah. She can send them a tax form to make the donation tax deductible. Please just ask anyone you know to be praying for Noah and for us! :) As always pray for him to be safe, healthy, warm, and someone to love on him :) We are gettin everything ready! :) We Can't WAIT!!! :)

Thanks for the prayers and caring :)

God bless,

Kisses in the Wind

I hold you in my heart and touch you in my dreams.
You are here each day with me, at least that's how it seems.

I know you wonder where we are... what's taking us so long.
But remember child, I love you so and God will keep you strong.

Now go outside and feel the breeze and let it touch your skin...Because tonight, just as always, I blow you kisses in the wind.

May God hold you in His hand until I can be with you.
I promise you, my darling, I'm doing all that I can do.

Very soon, you'll have a family for real, not just pretend.But for tonight, just as always, I blow you kisses in the wind.

May God wrap you in His arms and hold you very tight.
And let the angels bring the kisses that I sent to you each night.

When Love Takes You In!
