Here is one of the flyers for the Bake Sale we are having on August 29th for Jeremiah! I know you can't see it too good. We are blessed that a business close to a really busy place has offered us to do this. The last time one was done there they raised $700. Alot of folks donated to the sale for that family, so please pray folks will donate baked goods to ours, and others will come and buy!
Millie's lunch box after I packed it this morning! She LOVES High School Musical! :) I am in search of good deals on anything with it on it for her for Christmas :)
Millie just before we went outside to wait for the bus :)
We were rushing to be out their on time and she had to put her belt on out there :) heehee and then the driver was MUCH later than she originally said :) lol
Millie getting on the bus! :) FIRST time I have ever put a child on the bus! :) She had a wonderful first day, already has 3 friends at school and some at Church tonight :) She is doing so well :) I so admire her! I would NOT be doing so well at her age going to another country! I am very proud of my daughter for the year :)
As I come to a close of this picture sharing post I am sad to not have pictures of my Jeremiah to share as I do of my other kiddos! My life in ways feels so full and joyful with Celeste, Noah, Millie and my sweet hubby Bobby, my mom, friends, Church, etc. and it is, BUT a part of me is missing. My Jeremiah waits a world away and each day it aches more and more that he is there and I can't hold him, touch him, smell him, comfort him, give him his medicine, talk to his therapist and learn what I can do daily to help him. Find the best docs, the best everything to give him the best I can. It is amazing to me how quickly I forogt how HARD this is, waiting, this being a mama to a baby across the ocean. Fundraising is so overwhelming at times, I look at how much we need, I look at uscis paperwork that NEEDS to be filed and KNOW I dont have the money to file it NOW and it needed to already be gone, I loook at it all with earthly eyes and I feel like I just dont know what to do, but then I remember as I was led to share with someone else today, we see through a glass but dimly, the Lord sees all! HE KNOWS where EVERY penny is coming from. He is moving on Jeremiah's behalf in areas I have no clue! I KNOW this! I KNOW he cares. So as long as I can hold onto more of what I KNOW and less of what I SEE then I should be ok, right?!
Jeremiah my sweet frogie boy. Mama soooooo loves you. I so want to come and pick you up this instant and rock you and sing to you and tell you how much you are loved and adored. Honey boy we are working so hard and praying so hard and we will be to you as soon as we possilby can. Hang tight little man and catch my kisses in the wind!
