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.

Crazy Love oh how it changes you :)

This is a response to a post HERE entitled Crazy Love!  If you have not read it please head over and do so :)  Our family is a tithing family though over the years I am sure hubby has not made the tithe for one reason or another.  I know God has grown him in that area over the years!  We attend an amazing Church in a neighboring town that i san interdenominational, multi-cultural, spirit-filled community where Jesus is exalted and the miraculous is expected!Crazy Love to me is such a fitting title for what this amazing lady is sharing because that is how I would describe my love for my Jeremiah!  Our need is $4000 to travel to Taiwan and pick up our son Jeremiah!  Jeremiah has severe Cerebral Palsy and Visual Dysfunction and will be 2 on March 29th!  Just a few days away! The reason I say our love for Jeremiah is crazy love is because we have been told many times in the last year of our journey that we were CRAZY to start out on a journey to this severely needy little guy with NO MONEY.  We began on love and a prayer...almost a year of fundraising later, we are still on love and a prayer!  Thank you for considering helping us go get Jeremiah! If you have any questions please email me at  PLEASE PRAY for God to move the mountains and help us get to Jeremiah and get him home!

Soft Clothes for Orphans and Noah and his coat and SHOES!

So I have been thinking about what can I do to give back to Jeremiah (and Noah's as well) Orphanage when we go to Taiwan.  Last time we took a gift for the Nannies and we will most likely do that again though I am not sure what to take...but I wanted to think of something I could do for the babies that will be left waiting and the orphanage as a whole!  So what I decided is I want to take as many soft clothes as I can.  Onsies, the little pants that go over them, union suits, rompers, short sleeve, long sleeve it does not matter.  Soo, if you would like to bless an orphan or two PLEASE consider sending us a few NEW soft clothing items to add to what we want to take :)  I am not sure our travel date just yet but I know it will be in the next 2 to 8 weeks so please send things quickly.  Contact me at if you do not have our address and want to help :)

Now onto some pictures of Noah!  :)  We have had a cold snap here, actually had SNOW on the first day of spring yesterday.  So this morning we had to wear a jacket again after a bit of no jackets.  This afternoon he decided he wanted to go bye bye and thought if he got ready that would persuade me!  LOL  so put his own coat on for the first time :)  LOOK :)

can you tell it is on upside down???

look at the feet!

showing me a receipt :)

And I HAD to show you these shoes!!!  The little ones were THE GOTCHA DAY SHOES Noah wore :)  The ones beside are ones I just found Noah on ebay for a steal!  The boys will have matching shoes on Gotcha Day! :) PRAYING the little ones fit Jeremiah! :) For that matter I might need to try these on Noah :)  He is wearing a 7 now so that is what I got :)

HANG ON TIGHT JEREMIAH !!  IT IS GETTING CLOSER :)  I love you frogie boy :)  Until I get there, catch my 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!
