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.

Care Package for Noah goin with Ramona!

I mailed of a care package that is goin to Noah in Taiwan! My good friend Ramona is going to pick up sweet Jaden and she offered to take a care package to Noah! It so blesses my heart that my friend will get to bring home her baby girl and that she will get to check on Noah for me! :) Below I will post some pictures of what is in the care package! :)

sure hope that these are ok! I was told that they do not like to dress the babies in short pants and not too much in short sleeves but sometimes short sleeves so I tried to get things I thought they might actually put him in! ;) I LOVE the one that says Someone in Louisiana Loves Me! They wont know what it says but I do so I guess that is ok. And his bib has his Chinese Name Yueh-Tsan but it is not written in Chinese so I guess I could have just put Noah! Oh well. Anyway, I must say I had quite a time getting all that in a gallon size ziploc bag which is all we are allowed to send at a time. I sent the camera because I have been told my other mommies that they will take pictures on it and then give it to you when you pick up your baby! I forgot to write his name on it so who knows what will happen to it, but of course I don't know how to write in Chinese. If I did I would have sent a card to the Nannies thanking them and all :) Anyway, I had such fun! I am already preparing for the next care package that is going next month most likely! :)

Noah honey, Mommy loves you so very much! Catch my kisses in the wind little man!

Evening to y'all!!!! :)

I wanted to share that I came home tonight to an email from HEARTSENT!!! And it had the wonderful little box in the corner that means ATTACHMENT! So I KNEW right away I had new pictures of my son! :) YIPEEEE AND they were made ON MY BIRTHDAY!!! :) What an amazing present!! :) No court update yet but I did receive the following update:

Height: 77 cm = 30.32 inches
Weight: 10.4 kg = 22.93 pounds
Head circumference: 45.7 cm = 17.99 inches

St. Lucy's Center said that he likes to play hide and seek and can walk by himself! What an adorable boy you have! I will let you know when we get court updates and if there is any new information for you.
I am a bit sad I was not able to see Noah's first step but I can't wait till the day I see him walk into my arms!! :) I am happy that he is growing and doing well! I can't wait to play hide and seek with that boy! :) He has grown since my last update on height and weight. One of the outfits I got him (to send in care package with Ramona) will probably only fit for a short while. It was a 12 month and said height to 31 inches and weight to 24 pounds. The rest of the outfits are 18 months. They should fit. I will post the pics of the items goin in the care package later! My cell phone is not wanting to send them to my email address for some reason but I also took pictures with the digi cam so I will take it up and have them put on a disk to put them on here!

I was listening to a praise and worship cd in the car on the way to the Church today to work on Vacation Bible School stuff and the words really spoke to me and I wanted to share...
Your love is deep
Your love is high
Your love is long
Your love is wide
Your love is deeper than my view of grace
Higher than this wordly place
longer than this road I travel
wider than the gap you filled
Who shall seperate us
Who shall seperate us from your love
Nothing can seperate us
Nothing can sperate us from your love
As I am driving along and singing this song with all my heart so many thoughts went through my mind. I am so blessed that God loves me like this! And that NOTHING can separate me from that love. And it is hard at times to think about God loving me this much. and I remember that his love is bigger than this road of uncertainty that we are traveling on! I think about how much I love Celeste and Noah. I love them like this! And nothing can separte me from them in my heart EVEN an ocean. And then I think about Noah and that as much as I love him and want him home and in my arms that God loves him that much more! God knows what He is doing and HIS timing is totally and completely perfect and though I see it through a glass dimly HE sees it all so clearly and sees the whole picture and I need to just trust in Him and wait on Him to show off some more. NO, I dont know when we logged in or what is goin on with our court case, NO I don't know where the rest of the travel money is coming from, NO I don't know when we will travel to get Noah, NO I don't know HOW I am gonna conquer my fear of planes and leap on that plane to go get my boy and NO I don't know when Noah will be placed in my arms! But I DO KNOW the one who Knows! And that is good enough for me.
Anyway, you have waiting long enough! Get ready to see my boy! He looks so much older in these pictures I was shocked!

Presenting Noah WesLee Sisemore age 14 months 1 week and 6 days old:

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!
