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.

Boy have I got NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello all!!!!! I wanted to share some news with yall! This evening when Bobby brought the mail in we had something from USCIS!!!!! It is a I-797C. I thought we were waiting on an I-171h so I was confused but it says we are approved. It says " It has been determined that you are able to furnish proper care to an orphan or orphans as defined by section etc.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Those words are so wonderful! Another place it says Your application has been approved!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So I am thinkin this is what we are waitin on to say we can bring Noah into the country! :)

Also I wanted to share that we received a letter from Shoahannah's Hope and we are being given a $3000 grant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! God is so incredible!!!!!!!!! What a day it has been today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Please continue to pray for us to raise the money we need for flight, hotel rooms, food, Noah's visa and anything else we will need. Also please pray for the fast judge to make the adoption final in Taiwan!!!!!! and give us travel dates SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so incredibly excited though I am sure you can't tell!!!!!!!!!!!!

We are another 2 steps closer to our sweet little Noah!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for all your love and prayers. Please share any ideas for fundraising the last of the money we need!!!!

Noah honey, Mommy and Daddy are getting closer and closer sweetie pie! We love you and are blowing you kisses in the wind sweet boy!

I just wanted to tell you that I saw Noah today while visiting Lucy. He is such a sweet and cuddly boy! He loved to be held and just had the most wonderful spirit about him. I wanted to scoop him up and bring him home to you. I just thought you would want to know he is well and I told him that Mommy loves him and would be there soon.

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!
