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.

GOD DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My Daughter took this when I was finding out what God did!!  And I am putting it up here under protest because I look dreadful and even bigger than normal but she insist that my faithful bloggy friends will want to see this sooooo

Make photo slide shows at
scoll down for more info


So , we had BIG anonymous donations come into our reeces rainbow tax deductible fund today and Andrea at Reeces Rainbow Paypal it to me just a bit ago and sent me a note.  So basically we have MORE than our bare minimum of what we thought we needed in our budget!!!!!!!  In addition to that we have had $159 in donations come in today, AND our adoption bug tshirt profit check of $110 arrived!  We are still doing our plate sale on Wednesday (we have 41 sold so far) and a car wash on sATURDAY and I have a friend doing a garage sale saturday if she still wants too.  We are doing our fundraisers that are advertised and planned because we KNOW God knows more than us and since the money did not arrive till after they were planned and advertised we are suppose to do them :)  I am off now to the store to get supplies for Wednesday's plate sale :)

If you are in the fundraising journey and it looks impossible, REMEMBER ALL THINGS are possible with GOD!!!!  and if you are thinking about adopting and thinking I just can't do that, too much work, to hard, wont happen I say to you and to anyone working now towards caring for orphans....
GOD IS ABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SCREAMING IN JOY FOR YOU!! I had a horrible day today but in the midst of my horrible day I prayed that God would do a BIG thing and provide MORE THAN YOU NEEDED for your adoption because I know how hard it has been. Wow! My God is Able to do More than We can imagine. I needed this as much as you did! Tears are again flowing down my face but this time they are good tears.

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!
