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.

The ups and downs in a day

Well, today has had many ups and downs. More ups than downs though, thank you JESUS! \o/ :) Bobby and I and Samuel had a day of adoption errands :) We had to go and make alot of copies and get some things ready to mail out :) We went to the bank and opened a Sisemore Adoption Fund Donation Account! That was so neat to have an account just for fund for bringing our sweet Noah home :) I am not real sure how others are able to donate to it but I know they can. It is at the Barksdale Federal Credit Union in Bossier City, LA. Folks would say they want to donate to The Sisemore Adoption Fund #13634733. That was neat to get that up and running. We also had to get some things notarized and all so we got all that done :) We went and dropped off some Sloppy Joe Plate Sale Flyers at the DMV and also left on at the Credit Union. Prayin we can sell some plates to some of them :) We went to the post office and got our passports applied for and did expediated services so PRAY they come quickly :) We will need them in order for our paperwork to go to Taiwan. We mailed off a good amount of what is left for our Dossier to our agency :) We still need a few more papers that we are waiting to get back from the different places and we need to get our pictures together and all :) All of that went very well. We also mailed our homestudy into the USCIS. When we got home we had gotten something from USCIS and I was soo very excited because I thouht maybe it was our fingerprint appointment. No such luck. :( It was our I-600A back. They said we sent it to the wrong office. Now when I went to their website before I ever sent it in the website told me to send it to that office so I am totally upset and confused! ugggh Especially since our homestudy is now on its way to the wrong place. They gave me an address to send it to now and I am prayin that is the right place. Bobby wants to call and talk to them on Monday before we send anything off again. So that was kinda a down. I am tryin VERY hard to not let it get me down or worry. Also when I checked the status of timeframe with the place where they say we are to file they are months behind the other one. I am leaving it all in YOUR hands Jesus! Thank you Lord that YOU know where it is to go and that we need it back to travel :) Then this evening I hear from our agency that we have received a $4000 grant towards adopitng Noah! \o/ Praise you Lord Jesus!!!! Hallelujah! God is so awesome! That is goin to be a HUGE help towards our boy! :) I am soo excited and am doin a happy dance :) We did here the orphange fee is goin up but are not sure how that will affect Noah's case so we have ALOT of prayin to do in all of this! Then on top of that good news :) I got new pics of my boy!!!!! :) So presenting Noah WesLee Sisemore's newest picture! He is a few days shy of 9 months old in this shot!

Isn't he the most precious creature you ever did see???? :) I am so in love :) He looks like he is very inquisitive about the camera. I think he is sayin, humm how do I get them to give me that let me play with that thing! :) heehee Being able to look upon this face made my entire day! :) He does not look like he has grown alot this past month or changed a whole lot but it is another picture :) another connection with my sweet little man! :)

Thanks for all the prayers and love yall :) Please continue to pray! We have a long way to go financially and in every way but God is Able! :)

Noah honey Mommy and Daddy are working so very hard sweetie. We are really trying to get to you as soon as we can. God loves you sweetie and He is helpin us too! :) Catch my kisses in the wind sweet baby! :) I love you! Mommy

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!
