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.

Well, that was very very quick! I just answered the door to the mail lady with Express Mail packages that have our Passports! :) I left Bobby's for him to get the joy of opening when he wakes up to get ready for work tonight. He is on nights for half this month. But I have mine in my hand! I am so excited! I have never even seen a passport before and now I have one with my name on it! :) The picture is not good but who cares! I am goin to Taiwan! God is so increadibly good! Seein this passport makes it feel even more real! :) Now I am free to travel to Taiwan and get my son! Well, as soon as the taiwan courts say I can! lol But still I can leave the country! heehee I NEVER would have thought I would WANT to leave the country! I cant wait to get on that plane! YES those who know me can faint now that I said that. YES I am still scared a bit but OH MY GOSH I get the blessed opportunity to travel to my son's birth country and SEE his country, meet the people who have cared for him, see where he has lived from birth! I get to hold all that in my heart and pictures and share it all with Noah when he is older :) What a blessing! So even though I am scared I know the plane is my friend! LOL :) I am still in shock how fast it happend! less than a week techinically because we applied at like 4 in afternoon last friday and it is in my hands by about noon today! :) YIPEEE!!!

Well, I found out today that the grant we received is to be dispursed to us AFTER all fees are paid and Noah's adoption is final. Sooo, that means it wont be a help in raising the money at this point, unless we can find a source to borrow the $4000 with the knowledge that they will receive it back as soon as adoption is final. So may prayers needed on that front. We are so blessed and thankful for the grant but a little taken aback that it does not go towards the fees we need to raise now. Tomorow we have a small Sloppy Joe Sale our of our kitchen. Everyone is just too busy to do a bunch of big sales so I will need to do a buncha buncha smaller ones. This one is ending up even smaller than I thought it would be but I reckon that is ok. It must be the way God wanted it for my first sale with just Bobby and I. God so worked it that Bobby is off tomorow! YIPEEE :) Thank you Jesus! I will have his help :) We have sold $38 plates and 7 of them are double sandwhich plates so that is good. It is not alot of profit but every bit helps and alot of the supplies (plates, picnic packs, etc we have plenty to do next week sale as well so next week will be much more profit. All we will have to purchase should be the actual food :) The plates will have sloppy Joe or 2, baked beans, chips, and a homemade chocolate cake with powder sugar dusting :) I pray that folks are pleased and so we will have repeat customers for next week. Next week we are doing a Chicken Spaghetti plate with italian green beans, garlic bread and a dessert. We are hopin for it to be a bit larger of a sale. We are tryin to work out getting some help to do a rummage Sale. We have alot of stuff so that is good. Any ideas yall have for raisin funds let me know. :)

Noah my sweet baby boy, mommy and daddy are trying so hard to get everything done and raise all the money and come and get you :) We CAN'T WAIT to hold you in our arms and hug and kiss you and pray over you and just spend time playing with you. Hold on my baby boy, and catch my 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!
