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.

2 Words TRAVEL PACKET!!! :)

Well, the day FINALLY arrived! We got our Travel Packet!!!! :) We will be scheduling a travel meeting by phone soon! I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Excited! :) I can't believe it has finally arrived! :) We are down to fundraising for the actual trip. Everything else is done! :) God is so amazing! :) I am havin a blast checking into hotels and flights and travel agencies and and and! :) heehee I am overwhelmed but also excited! I am aching so bad for new pictures. I keep praying some will come soon! and maybe an update. Seems the longer the process goes the more I miss him and the closer I feel to him all at the same time! Is that crazy? I just love looking at the things we have gotten for him. I can't WAIT to hold him in my arms!!! I must say it was so fun to read about what will happen on the Gotcha Day! I got teary eyed! God is so amazing. PLEASE keep praying for the final finances and for a quick final decree and news of our travel date! :) I am guessing based on others experiences that we will go sometime after September 1. I know we pick up on a Monday! I have come to LOVE Mondays just thinking about the day we get our boy! Thanks for all the prayers, help, friendship, and support! Please keep them up as we watch God show off somemore! :)

Noah honey. Mommy misses you more than you will ever know! I am blowing you kisses in the wind sweet little man! I love you!

I would be glad to send you a signed book to raffle off if you think it would help your fund-raising efforts.

I am completely out right now but expecting a shipment by the end of the week.

I wish you peace as you are in this excruciating time of waiting. Email me at if you would like to use the book.

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!
