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.

Friendship, Frienship, its a perfect blendship!

God has so blessed me in this journey to my Noah with some new friendships! I am so blessed by all my faraway friends in the adoption journey with me and was totally blessed and honored to share our Gotcha Day with one such dear friend! I had to go across the ocean to meet my special friend Jackie and her sweet hubby Jeff! They were wonderful and it felt like we had known them forever :) I treasure the time I had with Jackie and Jeff and if not for them being there would have NO VIDEO of meeting my Noah as our little video thing that Bobby was using did not work and we have NO VIDEO on it! Anyway, we shared several wondeful breakfasts with Jackie and Jeff and such sweet fellowship :) We were blessed to witness them getting Miss Lucy and will always treasure that as well! :) It was very sad to say goodbye to them as they traveled home to reality. I KNOW that someday we will see each other again :) I asked Jackie for copies of pics she took of us because I wanted reminders that it was real and I did get to meet her :) I hope she is ok with me posting them there :)

Here is Jackie and I on Gotcha Day Morning! Can you tell we are a TAD excited???


Here we are at St. Lucy Center with our sweet babies! They are what it is all about! God gave me my sweet Noah and MANY new good friends! :)


I can NEVER thank Jackie and Jeff enough for how sweet and kind they were to Bobby, Noah and I while we were a world away from home. We shared a cab ride of a lifetime :) and a bond that will always be there! I will hold them in a special place in my heart FOREVER! :)

I also want to send out a very special thanks to all of Noah's Aunties who are mama's to his St. Lucy Center roomies! :) I am so blessed daily by your friendship and by your generosity in helpign to bring Noah home and sending gifty's to Noah and Me! :) It is like a whole new addition to the family with all y'all :) I pray God will richly bless you all and I look forward to the day I meet the rest of you! :)

God has so grown me over the years. There was a time I could not truly allow anybody in close enought to be a friend, now he has blessed me with friendships that are so prescious here in own town and across the United States and even the world with the internet! :) I am blessed by the MOST amazing Church family on the planet. They are not just our friends, They are our family! :) Noah will be so blessed to grow up in such love!

thanks for allowing me this time to in some small way honor all these special friendships! Just be glad you can't HEAR me sinign the song! Friendship, Friendship, its a perfect blendship! :) heehee

Tami,
I've been thinkin about Noah and hope that his skin is healing and he isn't itching too badly anymore. I also want to tell you that you are a very sweet and loving person and I believe that there are a lot of people out there who are lucky to be your friend as well.

Kisses in the Wind

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!
