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.

The Sisemore Amazing Christmas Video

I am finally done with the montage of our AMAZING CHRISTMAS! It did not look like things would come together at one point but thanks to Nanny, some blessed angels who we have no clue are, resale shops and a few miracles thrown in for good measure we had an amazing Christmas. The montage is LONG! It is like 28 minutes long. That is after I cut it down from an hour! I hope some of you might want to see it :) If so :) here ya go :)  and below the video is the ornament I made for Jeremiah :)  I remember making the one for Noah and crying because Noah was still in Taiwan and not home.  When we began the journey to Jeremiah 8 months ago I just KNEW he would be home and we would not have a Christmas spent with him there and us wanting him home.  I was so wrong :(  Anyway, this is the LAST Christmas he will spend without a family.

Merry Christmas from The Sisemore's!  And a very Happy New Year!  Thanks for the love and care you have shown our family this year!  2010 will be the year Jeremiah comes home to our family!  WOOHOOO!

Jeremiah my sweet boy!  I sooo missed you this week.  As I prepared for your Christmas gifts I so wished you were going to be here for us to give them to you now.  Dont worry frogie boy, they are waiting for you , just like all your gifts since the day we knew you existed and that God was giving you to our family!  Honey I have no clue why this is taking so long, but I do know that God sees what we don't.  HE knows the time, HE KNOWS the way.  He knows who He will speak to in order to help us, maybe we are waiting on that, maybe we are waiting for the perfect time health wise for your to travel, maybe we are waiting for mommy and daddy to learn the lesson God has for us in the journey, maybe a little bit of all, I dont know, but HE DOES!  I just know I love you more and more each passing day.  I dream of the day I have you in my arms, and can work those tight muscles, and help you do things you can't do now.  I watched a video of a friend cheering on her baby girl as she was crawing for the first time in a crawler that had been given to them.  I could just imagine the day we are all downt on the floor with you rootin you on!  Noah will be jumpin up and down for you :)  I can picture it now our whole family goin to Gumbo Games for you to compete in them.  We have been many years with other friends kids, and I can't wait till we are there for Jeremiah!  Baby this time seems so long that we wait, but really in the course of life it is so short, we have sooo much time together to come.  I am crying as I write this, I am trying to convince myself that even though I so ache to have you here, it is ok that it is not time just yet.  But the time is coming baby.  We are working now on a benefit concert to raise funds and give the LORD thanks for what He has done and WILL DO!  It is called "Get Your Praise On" Benefit for Jeremiah!  I am praying we can get it on video.  I always want you to know that GOD brought you home to us.  We love you baby and we are working hard, even when things dont work and blow up in our face, you are so worth it and we will keep trying.  Frogie boy, rest well and catch my kisses in the wind!

Good for you for taking so many pictures to remember the special day. Now all we need are some photos of your family with its newest little member...

What a beautiful montage! You all looked like you had such fun!

How blessed we are to have such wonderful families! I know I never thought I'd have more children, yet the Lord has blessed me too.

I also know how sad it can be at this time of year when we know we have another child that isn't home yet. But you have the right outlook, God's timing is perfect. But oh, how a Momma's heart aches for their children!

Praying Jeremiah home quickly and for VERY successful fundraisers!

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!
