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.

Noah Update :) and Jeremiah news, and other

Panda Boy is sick and I took him to the pediatrician today. It has been awhile since we have been in and since Noah has been home just over a year now they height and weight and I KNEW that Boy was gettin big! He was 27 pounds 7 ounces and 35 inches tall! I am not sure if she measured him right or not because that is a HUGE jump from the last time he was measured so WOW! But it is the official weigh in so to speak so we are goin with it! I do know that height wise he is startin to grow out of some of his 18 months clothes and I am needin to find 24 month and 2T things! He can still wear some 12 month bottoms and 18 month tops, but if its 1 peice the 18 months are not fitting! We just had Noah's yearly evaluation on Monday for the Early Steps program to see if he still qualifies for servies and if so which ones. I am praying they continue everything and maybe add stuff, but not take away. He is doing so well and I say lets NOT mess with it! He is tryin so hard to talk and it is so cute when he babbles away :) Sometimes you know what he is sayin and sometimes he could be talkin to Mars for all I know! heehee The other day he saw a zebra print fur pillow in a store and said what sounded like "AW SWEET!" I proceeded to bop 21 year old big sis Celeste on the head with said pillow! heehee Here are some pics of my Panda Boy Noah I thought you might like to see :) He is so cute :)

This was tonight and he was sittin with me in my recliner and I was fixin to upload a few things on to computer and he wanted me to take his picture :) You can kinda see he doesn't have quite as much spark in those eyes cuz of feelin bad. He is now sleeping beside me in my chair as I type!

I LOVE that boy!

This was Sunday at Church at a building fund fundraiser dinner :) He is sittin like a big boy! heehee

acting cute :)

He is lookin so mature to me lately and beautiful as always :)

Please keep our Target Gift Card Fundraiser for Jeremiah in prayer! I extended it till Thanksgiving Day to give time to get the word out and for folks to donate and all. What better thing to get just after thankgiving? I figure the winner can use it for Christmas Shopping. I am praying I can get some things donated to do an online yard sale that someone mentioned to me. Someone else mentioned doing an auction where I had a reserve price that I would not take less than and folks could bid on items. Not sure I can figure out how to do something like that, or if I can get anything donated to use for that but I am praying about it. Please see Jeremiah's Fundraising blog for more information on this and our Puzzle Fundraiser! For each $2 donation to the puzzle fundraiser folks will put a piece of the puzzle in and have their name on the back :) We will glue it all together at the end and frame it and the back will be covered in names of folks who helped bring Jeremiah home! :) Can't wait for it to get enough donations to be done :)

Thought I would share this header thing I tried to make for the fundraisinig blog! :) It is not as good as most folks but with such a cute subject you can't go too wrong!

Noah and Daddy :) so sweet :)

Me and my binky boo! I am so blessed with a great husband! It was a bit windy out!

This was our attempt to get a picture of the three of us! Noah was distracted! heehee

We put Noah on the saddle we saw but he did NOT think it was near as cute an idea as we did! He would NOT stay on it!
This past Saturday our Exchange Student/daughter for a year Millie went to the local High School Homecoming Dance! It was an American Experience and nothing she has experienced before. In Taiwan they do not date till Colllege. Though this "date" was his parents picking her up and taking them out to eat all together and then dropping them and the school dance and then picking them up, but still way more than anything she was use too! She looked very pretty, don't you think??

Celeste got to experience the little sister thing :) Millie asked her to do her hair and makeup! Course with our heat and humidity her hair was totally straight again by end of the night!

This is her date's mother pinning this homecoming thing on her!

This thing was long! I told her to hang it on her wall after the dance!

This was so cute :) We were babysitting that night and Noah and his friends are watching Millie and her date and his parents leaving! It was just so cute watchin them that I had to get a picture!!! :)

I can't wait for the day that I can take pics of Noah and Jeremiah together! Please if you have a minute, say a prayer for Jeremiah, for our fundraising, and for MIRACLES to happen and happen quickly! :)
Jeremiah sweet frogie boy! We love you more than you will ever know! We can't wait to hold you in our arms and bring you home and experience your days, your nights, your ups, your downs, your laughs, your tears, and to have just one of those amazing smiles of yours directed at us! :) Hang tight baby boy, We are coming as soon as we can, until then, catch my kisses in the wind!

Hope that Noah is feeling better soon. I know that having a sick one is hard on everybody, the sickly and the Mommy! You're in my thoughts, as I know that time is ticking and it's getting harder to wait...I'm sorry Tami.
Try to keep smiling!
Kisses to our Panda Boy. He will always be our Panda boy to me, by the way... I think that being apart of the waiting game last year and all of us cheering each other on and being there to help each other when the waiting was just too much, meant more to me than anything. Being a part of Noah's journey to his family will always stand out and hold a special place in my heart.
Hope that your little Frog man is home soon.

I hope your little guy is on the mend. I was able to only contribute a small amount yesterday but hope to add more soon. The waiting is agonizing and I'm keeping you all in my prayers.

Hi Tami,

God bless your sweet heart for bringing these beautiful boys into your family! They are adorable! I added your button to my blog, and I'm heading over to the fundraising blog next.

Could you stop by my blog and add my button to your blog to "Bring Emma home for Christmas?" This lovely couple has been waiting several years for Emma, it's really heartbreaking!

Is this your last fundraising push and then he comes home? Just wondering what your steps were until you can hold him :). Much love, Cheryl

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!
