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.

HIGH SEASON is NOT my friend :(

After waiting for almost 13 months to finally get a date and by the time we actually get to go the wait will have been over 15 months, we are traveling during "the WORST time possible"!  Flights are going to be MUCH higher than our budgeted amount!  We do finally have flights on hold, the agent is calling later tonight to discuss it all,  We have over half of the money now and what is in our RR grant fund is on its way by mail in a Check.  This could get interesting!  So we need prayer that the check gets here and clears quickly!  Also, the flights will take ALMOST everything we have saved so far, sooo that means ALOT of fundraising in a few weeks!  I am not positive but my best guesstimate is we need about 3,000 minimum by the time we leave June 4th!!!!!  GOD IS ABLE, GOD IS ABLE, GOD IS ABLE!  That is all I can think of at this point!  PLEASE if you have thought about donating to help Jeremiah at ANY point NOW is the time!  IF you think your donation would not be enough to help, IT WOULD!  If you have been saving change, PLEASE let us know and send it on!  PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PRAY for us!  We have an opportunity to raise funds at a festival May 8, IF we can come up with upfront money to book the booths ($100 for food booth, $35 for craft) and the money for supplies in food booth, and IF my friend who donated pillows before has anymore excess pillows and crafty things to spare!  lots of iffs!  Please be in prayer for that!  We are so close and yet so far!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  PLEASE PRAY, please comment and tell me you are praying :)  send me a word of encouragement or a miracle or two!
and so we ALL remember what it is all about:

Jeremiah my sweet frogie boy!  Mama loves you soo much, I literally ache to have you with me!  It seems like this journey to you has been so hard but oh my sweet sweet boy YOU are soo worth it!  God has been so eveident in every step of this journey to you!  God must really be planning to some special things through you baby boy!  So many people are praying for you and they are excited to see you come home!!! :)  We are coming baby boy....hold on tight and as you rest, listen real close and you will hear me saying mommy loves you in you heart and catch my kisses in the wind!

I am praying for you! God WILL provide. And, that sweet boy will have an amazing story of how hard his parents worked to bring him home. How could he ever doubt how much he is loved?

I TOTALLY understand. We brought Bekah home in June and possibly the twins will come home in June. It can be SO expensive. Praying my dear sister in Christ.....

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!
