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.

Deliveries Deliveries and more!

Well, I wanted to write and share that we have had quite a few days here :) I just have loved opening the door twice this week to the mailman carrying gifties from my adoption friends to my sweet Noah! :) The first came from my friend Judy K! :) This came addressed to Mr. Noah Sisemore :) and there was a sweet note from William to Noah! This card will be put up for Noah to read someday. Mommy cried on it! :) Very very sweet. William was at St. Lucy's with my Noah! Here is the gifties they sent

Thank you so much Judy and William and Family! :) We are blessed and honored you would think of us! :)

Then another day another knock! :) heehee and here is Mr. Mailman with another gifty! This time from my friend Tiff ! She is Gracyn's Mommy! She picks up her sweet angel a week to the day before me! We were hoping to be in Taiwan together along with my friend Jackie but turns out Tiff flys out of Taiwan the day we leave for Taiwan. Anyway, we are so blessed to have Tiff think of us at this time as she prepares to leave to bring Miss Gracyn home! :) Thanks so much Tiff! Here is a picture of the gifty from Tiff :)

We have been so incredibly blessed to make so many wonderful friends with the mommies and daddies of Noah's Taiwan Roomies :)

I also wanted to share with y'all Noah's GOTCHA Day outfit! :) I am guessing on all the sizes so this may swallow him. Actually if my update weights are correct it is going to be too big, but I would rather go to big than too small. And the shoes were a guess based on the size shoes William wears. Prayerfully they are not too small. :) Anyway, here it is

I just love this outfit! :) I cannot wait to see Noah in it! :) And the little sandles are so adorable! :)

On to other news :) Today was an amazing day! We received our covenant loan check by overnight fedex this morning

This is the stub off it! We were in such a hurry I did not take a picture of the Check!

and immediately jumped in the car to go to the bank to cash it so we can send of the payment to book the flights that are reserved. Well, we had feared and were correct that the bank wanted to hold the check for 5 days before they released the funds. We had already been told by Todd he needed the money by Friday in order for us to not loose the flights. I had called my friend Cassie on the way to the bank to pray with us for Favor at the bank. She suggested asking them if they can call the bank the check is drawn on and verify the funds were there and the check was good and go ahead and release the funds. We asked, the wonderful bank ladies jumped to it trying to find the phone number of the bank to call them and verify the check. While they were doing this we prayed! After a bit one of the girls comes out and says, the check has been verified so we can release the funds NOW! :) I was literally jumping up and down in the bank! :) heehee and shouted just a little too loud I fear Hallalujah, Thank you Jesus! heehee So they cut us a cashier's check for the flight amout for us to send to our travel agent Todd.

Then we hightailed it over to Fed Ex and sent it overnight mail. Todd will have it in hand by 10:30 am tomorrow and can book the flights!

Here is the Fed Ex Receipt for our PLANE TICKETS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Isn't God cool?? :) I am so excited! :) It is amazing All God has done in the past 9 + months! Each step of the way has been an adventure and a blessing and a learing experience of who God is and how much He loves even me and that he cares even about the little things! I stand in awe of Him! Thank you Jesus for being such an on time God and for showing off for me so much through all this! :) We give you all the glory and honor and praise! I can't believe that in 3 weeks from this moment I will be ON AN AIRPLANE!!!! :) if you know me you KNOW this is GOD! heehee

Hang on sweet Noah! We are coming soon baby boy! Catch my kisses in the wind little man! I love you!

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!
