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.

This is Ravyn. She is 6 years old and was diagnosed yesterday with a inoperable cancerous brain tumor and flown to St. Judes this morning. There the family was told that Ravyn at best has 2 weeks to live with no treatment :( With Kemotherapy if it responds to it at the outside she has 18 months to live. :( This is devastating to everyone. Ravyn has a twin sister and an older sister and also a step brother and 2 step sisters as well as her parents and 2 aunts that I know. PLEASE PLEASE storm heaven for this little girl. I know GOD IS ABLE! We need God to show off for Ravyn. Please please pray and share with ALL your prayer lists.

I am already crying and all I wrote so far was the TITLE! November 3rd is a day that I will always treasure in my heart!! THAT is the day that we very first were contacted about our sweet baby boy NOAH!!!! :) Today is 1 YEAR from that day! What a difference a YEAR can make! A year ago today Noah was a dream in our hearts, a picture on a screen, a PRAYER waiting for God to answer! WOW! TODAY he is napping beside me to get rest up for his belated First Birthday Party!!!! I can't even begin to express all the emotions I am feeling today. First and Foremost is that WE HAVE A BIG BIG GOD! A GOOD GOD! A GOD WHO LOVES US AND CARES ABOUT THE THINGS WE WANT! I am still in awe when I look over the last year at ALL God did to SHOW OFF and bridge an ocean to bring Noah HOME!!! :) I really am just cryin in just awe and gratitude and amazement that it has happend. A year ago my flesh was so scared that it couldn't possibly be real, that he couldn't really be MY BABY! Would it work out? WHERE would be get the money? Can I be a good enough mom that he deserves? Lots of thoughts, lots of fears. But just knowing that he was "hard to place" just made me want to fight all the more! WHAT IS wrong with people that they only want a "perfect" baby! Give me a break. Even what appears to be a perfect baby now who knows years from now. PRAISE God I don't have to be perfect for my Heavenly Father to WANT me and use me in his kingdom!! I am so thankful that my sweet boy was not snatched up before he was offered to us! I can't imagine my life without it being touched by this amazing creature!
THEN!!! The first glance I ever had of MY BABY BOY!!!!!!!

I'm off to finish cake and cupcakes! I WILL be back later with pics from the party! Noah's up and I want to snuggle him before I have to share with all Bobby's family!
hugs and Kisses in the wind to ALL from Me and MY BABY BOY!

Prayers for MJ's Family~ A tragedy hits an adoptive family

Hi all,

I know I just posted for the evening with pictures and levity of the day but then I saw on a friends blog a prayer request and followed link after link to read a story of loss and tragedy. A family has lost their beautiful daughter. MJ was 7 year old and "slipped and fell" and 2 days later passed away from the head injury! This is tragic beyond imagination. Apparently MJ was adopted from China 7 months ago by her dear family. I cannot even begin to fathom the pain this family is going through. If you are a praying person at all PLEASE please lift this mother, this father, this family in prayer. I am in shock and tears here. THIS is actually a HUGE fear of mine. A FALL. I am always worried Noah will fall and severly injure himself. HOW scary is it that a slip and fall could take a child from her family for good :( Life is so prescious. I will have an even harder time sleeping tonight. I always worry about Noah falling off the bed when he ends up in our bed after he wakes for a feeding. I am doing a dreadful job of this post but please please just pray for this family and hug your babies. I am huggin on Noah and keeping an extra careful eye on him. Below is a link to the obituary.

The Naked Baby Church!

LOL!!! Did that title Catch your eye?? Not totally naked but you will understand shortly! heehee

So, today was Church and the day did NOT start out good. Noah was very crabby and I should have KNOWN better than to put the hat on him that came with one of the outfits Celeste gave us at the Shower! But did I , NOPE.

As you can see he was not at ALL happy about this hat!

Here he is a bit happier but as you can see still crabby!

Church itself went very well and God had a Word special for me today which I needed and have some praying and pondering and searching scriptures to come as a result :) Noah ended up falling asleep at the end of Prasie and Worship and slept about half way through the sermon so this was good! :) His napped definitly helped his mood! :) Now on the The Naked Baby Church. I had been given a package of disposable bibs and have been using them along. Well, Noah was NOT happy today about the bid and got a might upset. Well, several mom's said, just take the clothes off. I am like that is what I do at home alot of the time, especially if messy! :) So anyway all these babies are stripped to eat :) heehee Not totally naked but some in just diapers and some in pants :) Here are some pictures for your enjoyment :)

Mr. Noah eating his Gerber graduates puffs! :) He loves these things :) And was QUITE happy to be stripped down to diaper :)

Here is Jenni and her baby Elijah! Stripped of his shirt! :) Isn't he the cutest thing! :)

Here we have Master Caleb!! :) Boy is he getting big! Look at him go after that mac and cheese! :) He has barlely any teeth and can way outeat Noah!

Here is Miss Sara Jane! :) So sweet :) She is 2 months older than Noah! She actually feeds herself very well with that fork! I am shocked! :)

Babies were so happy to be down and free to toddler round! Here is Noah and Elijah! :)

Look at Noah! He is lovin this! Things have quieted down and not as many people and he can run run! :) heehee

Here Sara Jane is TRYING to get away from her mama Susan as she is trying to put her clothes back on! :) The boys look on :)

I just LOVE havin a baby in the midst of all of them toddlin around! :)

So after Church we drove Bobby home to take a nap before he had to go back to work tonight and Celeste and Noah and I had to head to Big Lots and Walmart to get a few last minute things for Noah's belated First Birthday Party tomorow! I am so excited that we get to celebrate! Doesn't look like there will be many babies though because 2 will be really late and one is now sick! PRAY Noah was with her this morning and now she has stomach bug. With him just getting over this Pneumonia I am trying not to worry. It does look like some of Bobby's family will be able to be here and a couple will come late but spend the evening with Noah and I after Bobby goes to work so he will have some playtime then :) I will make sure and get lots of pictures! :)

anyway here are few shots of our afternoon out shopping :)

Here I am driving and Celeste layin on my shoulder! Notice her shades!

Here Jei Jei has shared her "shades" with baby brother Noah! :) SOOO CUTE! I think he must be workin on cutting tooth number 9 as he is chewing on anything material he can get his hands on lately!

Here is cowboy Noah! :) I CAN'T believe he let us put that hat on his head!!! :) He is definitly a country boy at heart!!! :) Don't y'all love it! :) I KNOW Aunt Dorothy and Aunt Liz are gonna have a FIT over this picture! :) heehee IF we could have just got him to smile!!! :)
And last but not least since we had fellowship potluck meal at Church we just had a kinda small lazy supper tonight and Noah had his first peanut butter sandwhich! :) Uncrustables were recommended to me so I got him a box and he had one tonight! :) I would tear off a little piece and hand it to him :)

Here is the uncrustable after I have torn off some and Noah tried to HELP! heehee
Here we are our FIRST bite! :) HE LOVED IT! :)
Well, I am off to check blogs and emails and get some sleep and PRAY Noah sleeps awhile!
WE send you blessings and 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!
