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.

Jeremiah Harold Sisemore aka FROG!

I am so excited! I have spoken to our agency on the phone and contracts and such are in route to us! They seem very excited that we want Jeremiah for our son! :) I am thrilled beyond words. I feel like now that I have spoken with them and know they have left the orphanage know he has a mama and daddy who are working towards adopting him that I can share a bit more about him. Jeremiah has cerebral palsy. He had quite a traumatic birth and time following birth for awhile. He was vented and things were very touch and go. He does have some visual imparment but we do not know what that will mean just yet. For any medical folks out there he has severe periventricular Luekomalacia. He is the most beautiful boy! He just turned 1 year old. He apprently has excellent hearing and loves to be held and knows his therapist and nannies by the sound of them coming in the room and reacts with excitement! :) He is eating good by bottle and being fed with a spoon! He is totally amazing and we can't wait to bring him home and have him and Noah grow up together and brothers :) We know that his needs are great but we so love him and can't wait to fill all his needs. PLEASE be in prayer for the financial aspect. Pray for grants, donations. fundraising opportunities and just for God to move mountains and to bridge the ocean once again to bring our little frog home! It is funny how so many people really got into his nickname! :) We will have to FULLY RELY ON GOD to make this happen, just like it did with Noah!!!!!!!!!!!! GOD IS ABLE! I will post a picture in the next few days once the papers are signed and the ball is rolling :) I am working on lots of things to help bring this little one home. Y'all Noah is so cute. We have several pictures of Jeremiah and we have printed them and Noah every time he sees a picture of him in print or on the computer he has to kiss him! :) It is like he knows that is his baby brother and he is a Ge ge (big brother) :)

Jeremiah sweetie, mama, daddy, Jei Jei and Ge ge all love you so much and we send you Kisses in the wind!

Okay Tami,
It's time to change the face of your blog now! Yeah, I'm so excited for your family. It won't be long before you are as scatter brained as I am if you keep adding kiddos to the mix.
Congrats again!

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!
