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.

Love of Noah

Just thought I would share some pictures of my beautiful boy just because I love him! :) I hope you like these as much as I do :)

Noah talkin on mama's phone!

Here he is figurin my phone out! He loves to snitch it! :)

Lookin up at Daddy! :) so sweet :)

MY BABIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

He never sucked his hands before but lately he is doin that but its more a gnawin on them than sucking! He has now got 5 teeth cutting at the same time. The 4 molars are still not all the way in yet and now we have a eye tooth coming.

This facial expression is weird :) hehee but yes Panda Boy is still a table boy! :) heehee chases the dogs in and out of there :) heehee

This shot is soo cute to me! :) He was in the kitchen watchin the the puppy :)

so cute! :) He has the cutest sense of humor :)

You can tell he has a cold! not a good shot of his nose! But he is cute here. You can see how bad the ezcema is on his little cheeks

Here we are in the tub with our ear plugs in to protect them because of the tubes! He LOVES his waterplay. oops I mean bath! lol He thinks its water play! :) My bathroom will never be the same as pre Noah! :) heehee
Hope you enjoyed this glimpse of Noah! :) He brings me such joy that I can't even describe! I am so thankful that I was blessed with this amazing gift!

Kid City and ReAdoption HELP

Today was our first day meeting with the stay at home moms playgroup! :) They met at a place called KID CITY! This is a 4 story playscape at a local church open to the public for free. There is a starbucks on site as well but it also has snacks and juice and all kinds of stuff for purchanse. The playscape was not exactly toddler appropriate though parts of it were doable and it was tall so I could stand and walk in parts of it and climb and crawl with Noah! LORD HELP MY BODY! lol :) It was nice to meet some other moms from around the area and a couple of others with toddler boys just a bit younger than Noah! :) He really seemed to have a good time! There was a part of it with balls of all kinds, soccer, basketball, kickball, regualar kids balls etc. He LOVES balls so he was thrilled with that! :) I have some pictures to share below :) Hope you enjoy them :)

now for the ReAdoption HELP part! So when we got home with Noah we called our homestudy agency to do our readoption our Taiwan agency said we needed to do and were told that in Louisiana we dont need to do that and we need a recognition of adoption. So we have been working towards finding someone to help us with that and then today find out, no we need a readoption. UGGGH So then they are talking a total new adoption process as if he had never been adopted, that he is not our son as far as LA is concerned and such. I am FLIPPIN OUT! I am told to contact homestudy agency again, who say they dont understand why we would have to start all over but if so then we need a lawyer and not them and they give me a name to contact and such. So we are trying to figure out what to do. Basically they are sayin we have to do it as a private adoption but its really not, and then its not an agency cuz our Taiwan agency is not in Louisiana! I am like good grief. We have a finalized adoption from the court in Taiwan and they gave us our son! What's the big deal! So now I am despretly trying to figure out Louisiana Adoption law when it comes to IR4 visa and what we need to do. So I come across some stuff that says we need to do a Finalization of adoption which they say is a readoption, but not like starting all over and not needing the $3000 retainer lawyer. I have NO CLUE at this point what is write to do. I just know I want my adoption legal EVERYWHERE. I want my baby to have his citizenship and his Louisiana Birth Certificate and that be that. I want him to have all he needs and I dont like feeling like I can't do what he needs. I mean I know we will it is just really confusing right now. Have any of you adoption buddies out there done a readoption? especially if it was on an IR4? What was the process? did a lawyer go to court with you? any advise is most welcome. I wish I knew someone who has been through this in Louisiana! Please pray all this gets straightened out and that we can raise money quickly if we do have to do the whole thing over and HOW to do that and and and... Hey I may sound nutty but you should have heard me before my friend Lora calmed me down! Thanks Girl! I love ya and am so thankful for ya! Anybody got any miracles up their sleeve please send them my way!!!! Also please please continue to pray for my friends Shonette and Darrell and baby faith! They have to come up with alot of funds very quickly to get this little angel home! Thank you so much to those who have taken my $10 challenge to help them! Keep it up!

Me and my boy actin silly this morning! :)

Balls, balls, balls! :) Can you see the big grin???

I stold Jei Jei's hat! :) heehee

WOW mama! heehee

Noah and I IN the playscape! :) so fun! :)

WE send you blessings and Kisses in the Wind!

Challenge 1750

Ok, yall,

I have a challenge for you! Who among those reading this blog today has EVER had a donation given to them to adopt a child? Who has had someone by a candy bar, a pizza card, a magazine subscription, girl scout cookies, etc from your child? I am sure most everyone can say they have at some point had someone sacrafice to help support them in some way. My challenge is to EVERY ONE in the sound of my words to dig deep and donate to HELP BRING FAITH HOME! Faith is laying in an orphanage in Ukraine. She has Down Syndrome and needs her family and intervention. Go to her mommy Shonette's blog and chipin EVEN if it is only $1.00 it will help. Shonette's husband made a promise to God that they would NOT go in to debt even temporarily for this adoption. This family has been walking door to door selling pizza cards and are planning more and more fundraisers and to work hard. We are on a time crunch and need $1750 by MONDAY! PLEASE PLEASE consider helping out this family and this little girl. This is a military family! If you enjoy the freedom you have in this country because of Darrel and the other men like him, donate! I give a specific challenge to EVERY adoptive mother that reads this! I challenge you EACH to donate at least $10 to help Faith come home! Think about for one second what it would have been like if something had happend financially to delay you on your journey and you NEVER held your baby in your arms! We all have been where this family is! PLEASE lets get together and help them. Lets show them that the adoptive community cares about each other! For any local friends and church family I challenge you too! How many times have we depended on the kindess of strangers to buy from our kids so they could go to camp! This is not about sending a child to camp, it is about saving a babies life! About building a family! PLEASE HELP! Follow one of the links in this post or click the button on my sidebar.

We send you blessings and KISSES in the wind!

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!
