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.

Hello from Fort Worth/Burleson!

Hello from Fort Worth/Burleson Texas! :) We are here for the weekend for a wedding of a dear friend of Celeste's and because we were going to be here the day they decided to bring our Foreign Exchange Student/ Daughter for a year :) We had them have her come to DFW instead of our tiny airport back home. :) So fun first weekend for her with us :)

This is the sign we held up for Ching-Yi who has chosen the American name Millie :)

Here is our girl! :) She is the sweetest thing and is already teaching me alot :)

Here are the flowers we gave her when she arrived :) they are not fairing too well in the hotel ice bucket with water. heehee Hope they make it home to a vase! :)

Here is Millie wearing the High School Musical Earrings that was part of our welcome gift to her. She loves High School Musical :)

Here is one of the fans she brought to us :)

It is amazing how much Millie has already taught me. She is very polite and helpful. She brushes her teeth for the LONGEST time and looks at a watch on and off. She has been raised VERY well :) and I am very impressed. She talks about eating healthy which is so good that a girl that age is so responsible :) She has been such a blessing already. She is almost to polite and will not make a decision when we say would you like to go swimming, she will say it is up to you. and we say , no it is your choice if you want to go we will go one more time before we checkout if not that is fine too, what do you feel like. Up to you she says :) Very very sweet :) I hope I can raise my asian angels near as well as she has been raised by her family. They have done an amazing job!
Jeremiah honey mama aches to have you home with all of us :) Hang tight baby boy. Soon we will have 4 kiddos in the car for awhile till Millie goes back to Taiwan. I am holding you in my heart and sending you kisses in the wind :)

Thats great she is staying with you. You can learn about her culture and hopefully she will take back some great things learned here.

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!
