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.

So, I shared that our RR family Support page had $1121 in it when we got notice yesterday!  As if that was not wonderful enough, today A DONATION came in to Reeces Rainbow in our name for $1500!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Would that be totally amazing to be able to do that???? :)  WOW!!!!!!!!  I can't not even fathom!  I don't know who it is from as Reeces Rainbow won't tell me names and all, but if you are reading this Please know that your generosity has touched me to my very core!  Just has every singe donation of every penny saved, every dollar given, every bid made, every giveaway entered.  I am overwhelmed with gratitude with the kindness of you all to help us bring Jeremiah home to a family of his own, to a mommy to take care of him, to work his muslces, help teach him mother skills, to be there if he has a seizure, to go to the right doctors and get on the best medicines to help him and not harm his liver and other organs.  To experience being held and rocked and sung to sleep, to watch a crazy nutty family and be a part of it.  I am so thankful that people have selflessly helped us.  When I think about how long this would have taken if we had not had help!  I mean to me Jeremiah is the world, the thought of another amazing son to love like my Noah who needs me and all is amazing but it not everbody in the world's thought minute by minute.  The fact that yall would join along side us in this journey soo touches my heart!  At times I wish I could see all my online friends on a daily basis.  Some I have become closer to than people in my own town or family.  God has blessed me beyone measure with people and I love to watch how God speaks to his people.  Some he has told to give money, some to donate items, some to send me a scripture, give me a call and check on me, some to be concerned about our health in our travel and get things to keep us safe!  I am so loved by God and by you all my friends!  I can't wait to share Jeremiah with you all through my blog post!  I know that I get so excited to come and share what Noah is doing with you all and knowing there are folks that care about him and me is amazing!

speaking of Noah!  I have been trying for almost a year to teach him to say TWO when I asked how old he was with no luck. So now I have been trying to teach him to answer three when asked because he will be 3 monday, so last night I am working on it with him and I am like how old are you Noah and he says TWO!  LOL  Go figure!  When he is 4 maybe he will say three!  Just thought I would share all that.

I hope you will forgive my babbling and all tonight.  I am hyper emotional tonight.  Partly because such an amazing donation came in, partly because we are so close to having all the money we need, partly because over 5 weeks later we still have no date, and partly because my sweet baby boy Noah is turning 3!  lol  probably some more partly's too but will stop with that :)

Please be in prayer for a fun party for Noah tomorow and for nice , not to hot, not rainy weather :)

If you want to see the amazing number on RR go HERE!

Jeremiah sweetie!  I NEVER would have believed when we began our Journey to you that you would not be here for your big brother's 3rd birthday party!  We will feel like the day is not complete tomorow because you are stil not here, but oh sweet frogie we are sooo close!  You would not believe all God is doing and the mountains He has and is moving!  The day is coming soon for you to experience a family.  When you cry to be held just know mommy will hold you soon, when you cry because you are bored, just know our big brother Noah will be playing with you soon and showing you so many things about the world!  When you cry because you are tired of being in one place just know your big sister Celeste is going to dancing through the house with you soon, and your Nanny will soon be helping exercise your little arms and legs.  When you cry because you feel alone know that your daddy will soon be talking to you and telling you stories and sharing so many things with you about life, and when you feel like there is no point in crying because everyone is too busy to just sit and hold you, KNOW that mommy will spend hours holding you and getting to know every inch of your little body, stroking your back, rubbing lotion on you, rocking you and giving you your bottle and smelling the sweet scent that is only yours, and kissing your sweet head as you snuggle into me in sleep.  For now as you wait in Taiwan you know none of these things but I do pray somehow God is preparing you and us to all be together and as you rest in HIS safe arms catch my kisses in the wind sweet baby boy!

That is such awesome news!
Happy Happy Happy Day!!!

Laughing at Noah!
Here is a side bar to your funny~
When people ask Allie what her name is, she smiles and says "TWO"!
She knows what "name" means...
When we ask her what's his name or her name, etc...But when people ask her what hers is, she always says two!....

I'm so happy that more help is rolling in. I know much weight has been lifted. OOOHHH, Can't wait to get him home!

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!
