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.

So blessed...not gonna let anything steal my joy

Morning all :)

I am so blessed in my life and in this journey and I refust to allow anything to steal my JOY because the JOY of the Lord is my strength. There are 2 hurricanes heading towards Louisiana that may be very serious. We are praying against them both as we want all to be safe. In addition to that because Bobby works for the State Police it is possible if the hurricanes are too bad that Bobby will loose some of his leave. My flesh began to cry immediatly at this thought. They did say at this point He can go to Taiwan to get Noah but as soon as home he MAY have to go back to work and loose the rest of the leave. Well, first of all this is all a MAYBE so we are praying against it all. Second I need to lay this down at Jesus feet! HE KNOWS! I feel guilty that I lost it at first. God has brought us so far, and done so much for us. He will take care of all this! I have been just really thinking alot lately about all God has done for us along the journey. The Benefit concert alone was amazing and I still see and hear it in my mind always. I so wish it was on video or audio tape so we could show Noah and I could hear all that Praising over and over again. It is so funny that God brought a particular friend that I had not seen in a couple years to sing for me at the concert and has since had her just HAPPEN by at our car wash! :) I got more hugs! :) God is just so wonderful and loves me so good! We have been so incredibly blessed in this journey that God has drawn us closer to our friends, brought some old friends across our paths again, and brought some wonderful new friends into our lives :) Below is just a TINY portion of those the Lord has blessed us with in this journey :)

It is funny because this began as a journey to find the child of our hearts! And not only did God bring us to Noah! But he gave us even more! God has moved on so many people in all of this. It is never JUST about us, though God does care about the small things that we personally want but He always finds a way to bless us in a way that is Kingdom as well :)

Thank you Jesus for the honor of being a part of this journey. And NO it has NOT been easy, or as short a journey as I thought nor is it over. Sept 8th we begin a whole new Journey with our life with Noah and I just have a feeling God is going to use his little life in big ways.

Noah honey, we are getting so close little man! I love you more than words can say. Catch my kisses in the wind just a little longer Panda Boy!

One week till My Jet Plane!

Wow! I can't believe I am going to type this but WE FLY OUT A WEEK FROM TODAY TO GO TO TAIWAN TO GET NOAH!!!!!!! Can you believe it?? I am soo excited and so in awe of God! What a mighty God we serve! :)




I am so in awe of all God has done to get us to this point! We are so incredibly blessed to be a part of this! I just LOVE it when God shows off! :)

It is so amazing how God works. I mean when we very first started talking about adoption I did NOT want to do an international adoption because I DID NOT WANT TO HAVE TO GET ON A PLANE! Wow, to think if I had stayed in that fear then I would not be going to get my sweet Noah! God knows so much better than me! Also at the start I thought WHERE are we going to get all that money. I KNEW God was going ot have to move and HE DID! :)

I am beside myself with excitement and also just crazyiness in my mind of all that needs to be done still and everything that is so new about all this. BUT I am leaving on a jes plane A WEEK FROM TODAY and I hold my son for the first time in A WEEK and 4 days!!!! :)

Noah honey Mommy loves her little panda boy and we are getting closer and closer little man! Just hang on a little bit longer and catch my kisses in the wind!

So amazed...

Hi all :)

I am so incredibly amazed at all God has done for us in this adoption and in me in my life in general! It is amazing to me that God has brought me to such a place in my life that I can leap out into the unknows that I have and trust that HE is gonna catch me and make it all work! :) Makes me think of that game kids play where they fall back and have to TRUST that someone will catch them! I have NEVER been good with that. But God... He has come into my life and made me whole! He has changed my life to one I want to live. I can't even totally express what I want to say here! I have 2 songs that I want to share that will maybe a bit express what all God is and has done for me!

The first one is called One Touch by Nicole C. Mullen please listen



And the second one is called Redeemer! Again by Nicole C. Mullen! I so want a cd with these 2 songs on it :)



I am so blessed that the Lord loved me enough to reach out and pull me out of the miry clay and redeem me into something useful! And on top of ALL that He did for me He loved me somemore and HE GAVE ME MY NOAH! The child of my heart! When things looked totally impossible HE CAME RUSHING IN TO SHOW OFF! I am SO thankful that I touched the hem of HIS garmet!

Thank you Jesus!

Noah honey, Jesus loves you panda boy and He is bringing you home little man! SOON! Mommy loves you! Catch my kisses in the wind a little bit longer baby boy.

Please look and share this with anyone you can :)

Hi all :)

An old online friend of mine has made an offer to try and help us generate funds for Noah. Please see below and share with anyone you think might be interested :)

Thanks :)
Tami

50% of the profits from ANY sale (no matter what they purchase) will go as a donation to Noah's adoption fund. All we need them to do is email you and me a detailed list of what they purchase... so we'll be sure that we know which ones were referred from your blog. (They could copy paste the portion of the confirmation email from the sale - minus their personal info - and email that to you and me?? Then we'd know what they purchased and what would go toward Noah.) The two email addresses are childofmyheart@aol.com and JoyUs.2GBTG@live.com

Here are the links for them to look at:

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!
