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.

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!

Fun pictures. You've definitely got me excited about the prospect of hosting a student, perhaps next year.

I so wish that you could have your Jeremiah home with you now. I know you're working as hard as you can to make that happen. But for now, don't lose hope! A year from now, you'll be shaking your head in amazement at the ways in which God pulled off not one, but two miracle adoptions.

Shelly and Family said...

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!
