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.

I also wanted to add that we have Born in My heart Adoption Bracelets available for $2 plus postage

and Sonic Community Discount cards for $5 plus postage.  These were donated by Sonic and 100 percent of proceeds goes to Jeremaih!  There is $17 to $20 value on each card. 

And several have asked or commented they wished there was a way they could help somehow.  We had an idea given to us and have not really gotten if off but I believe I am suppose to put it here for anyone that might want to try to do one where you live.

Jeans for Jeremiah!  The idea is that if you work, and your office either wears uniforms or non casual attire to approach the boss about a Jeans for Jeremiah day.  Employees would be allowed to wear Jeans for this one day for a fee and all the money raised would go to Jeremiah's adoption.  If you would like to see if your job, or a child's school, or a medical office, hospital, whatever might like to get involved and do a Jeans for Jeremiah day please let me know :)  You can use the logo above and even make a flyer with it and a Picture of Jeremiah.  If you want to do something and need me to make a flyer for you to make copies off, let me know, or if you need more information about Jeremiah or our Journey to present to those who would make the decision to allow this.  Even small offices can do it, nothing is too small to help.  A friend wrote on her adoption blog that is 1000 people donated $10 each they would have what they needed.  She was asked do you know 1000 people and she said NO BUT GOD DOES!  I say that here, as well for us at this point if 1300 people donate $10 we will have all we need!  I know I dont know 1300 people and you may not but if we all work together we can come up with enough folks!  This is just an idea since several have said they wanted to find a way to help us raise money.  I think Jeans for Jeremiah could be a good way possibly! :)

Please keep the auction, the puzzle fundraiser, the Jeans for Jeremiah all in prayer as well as the grant applications we are waiting on word about and the grant and loan applications we are currently working on.  As always PLEASE keep Jeremiah in prayer!  Pray against anymore rigideness in his little body, against seizures and for him to be safe and well.  PLEASE pray the funds come quickly and that we can travel to get him SOON!

You are one busy lady on behalf of your boy. I hope this auction does spectacularly.

Is it possible to find out where the amounts are or what the beginning bids are for your auction. I would love to help you out if possible. We are also in the process of adopting but closer to home through the foster care system in our state.. Many blessings

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!
