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.

BBQ Plate Sale a Success!

The BBQ Plate Sale was an awesome success today!! YIPEEE! We had so much wonderful help from our Church family and things went off very very well. The day did not begin so good when Bobby's Van broke down on the way to the sell. We had to leave it on the side of the road, squeeze Bobby and as much as we could fit in the car with Celeste and I and all the stuff we had and go on to the Church. A dear friend loaned her van for Bobby to go get the rest of the stuff in his van and then also for him to use for his route of BBQ plate deliveries! :) We sold a total of 279 Plates and delivered the marjority of them with 7 drivers! :) Yipeee :) We ran out of beans and had to go to the restraunt that had donated them and buy some more and so that was kinda a kink but worked out and we also ran out of desserts and a friend ran to a store and bought some more. Not quite sure how it happend but there ya go :) We had quite a few donations so we did not have as many expenses coming out of the proceeds! :) The baby fund is growing and growing, praise God!! We still need continues prayers for it to continue on and on. We have a long way to go but God is faithful! Thank you Jesus! :) Praying for other fundraisers to keep the money coming in and just prayin in general that God will send it one way or another! I know that my God is Able!

Thanks so much to all my friends and Church family who helped us today. We could NEVER have pulled this off without you guys! :) May God richly bless you for your help and love and care of us and our sweet baby boy Noah! NOAH, mommy and Daddy are gettin closer and closer to you sweetie! :) Catch my kisses in the wind little man! WE LOVE YOU!

YAY! How exciting! Praise the Lord!

I love the poem you have on your blog! Do you mind if I put this poem in a post on mine? And do you also mind if I add you to the list of blogs on my site?

I have made a video of our son, Grisha and it has the same song you have on here. "When Love Takes You In". It is somewhere posted on my blog because I can't figure out how to have it on the side. Well, I figured it out, but it is so big I can't do it. Any suggestions? If you can't find the video in the archives post, it is on I think the link is: Let me know if that is not it.

Have a great day today! :) Sorry for such a long comment.

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!
