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 honestly love you guys...

Feeling overwhelmed with so much, but also feeling so thankful for my online friends and family!  For the other adoptive familes who have followed along and become family to my heart.  I have so many memories and so many things stored in my heart from so many of you.  LORA you have been a rock for me!  I can remember calling you HYSTERICAL from outside a car place when I first brought Noah home, and you calling me at the two scariest moments of my life as a momma with each of my boys!  During Noah's surgery as they took him form me, and in that small lonely room in ICU with Jeremiah at death's door close by me.   You have been my friend from the days before Noah came home even :)  You and TIFF, Romana, Judy, and Jackie and so many others got me through those long days of waiting for Noah and for Jeremiah :)  HOLLI your call today was not accidental but God ordained.  I needed the distraction of a good chat with another mommy from some pretty instense worries going on in my mind.  And to get to hear about things with Breelyn and you and the family was such a good distraction :)  And Shonette I have the blessing of you as an online bloggy adoptive momma friend who is LOCAL and I get to see from time to time :)  There are so many others that God has brought into my life and heart through this blog and through our adoption journey.  This song is to all of you :)

Thank you for sharing such a beautiful post. I’m humbled by your sweet words and hope that you realize how much of an inspiration that you are to others.
Not many of us in the adoption community could or would be able to take on the challenges that you have chosen with out hesitation.
You jumped in with out taking a look back and grabbed a hold of your little men, hook, line and sinker!
Although I believe that many of us have it in our hearts to do so, there are also many of us who look at the challenges and know that we just couldn’t do it the way it needs to be done. Somehow, you seem to be able to look or see beyond these challenges and grasp a hold of the bigger picture with out getting caught up in the obvious obstacles that hold so many of us back. For this my friend, I truly believe that it is you who should be recognized right now.

I know that you are struggling with different areas in your life right now and I am certainly praying for you and your family. I guess there is a part of me that hopes your community will step up and lend a hand. I’ve been looking into different organizations that might be willing to help you and I sure hope it happens. If you can think of anyone I could contact on your behalf, please let me know.

You are doing a wonderful job Tami. You have given and continue to give with such an open heart. You are truly an inspiration.
Please try to make time for yourself and take care of yourself. You are the glue that holds your family together, so you need to make sure that you are taking care of yourself. Sending you hugs!

It was really nice talking to you also! We have to do that much more often. I get so caught up in emailing that I forget how nice it is to actually chat on the phone instead. Next time we talk, it will be purposely. haha. We love you too Tami!! You are an inspiration to many.

Continuing to shower your family with prayers. May God continue to bless have a beautiful family! I teach children with severe/profound intellectual and physical disabilities so I enjoy reading about your sweet Froggie Boy! He is fortunate to have you as his mommy and you are blessed to have him in your life.

You are truly an inspiration to all of us as you risen to equal and much greater challenges than any of us and did/do so with such grace.

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!
