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.

National Adoption Day 2014

I am doing thankfuls on my fb page and tonight's I wanted to put on this blog!  I have so let this go and I really need to get back to it!  I love being able to look back and see where God has brought us in our journey with our family!  Facebook is fun but when I want to look back the blog is just more our story! :)  Here is what I posted and the collage I made for tonight :)
Thankfuls day 22.... Today is Adoption Day. I am so thankful for Adoption. I am thankful that the Father adopts us all as His children, I am thankful for His direction to care for the orphans, I am thankful for 2 women with very different stories that gave my sons the gift of life! I am thankful to the country of Taiwan that approved our file, not once but twice, and each time said you may have the blessing of being the parents of this Taiwan treasure!  I am thankful to the boys orphanage staff who cared for them until we could! I am thankful for each and every person who helped in any way with fundraising and preparation at home to get ready for first Noah and then almost 2 years later for Jeremiah to come home! I am thankful that the Lord gives us the amazing gift of Adoption. There is a quote that says, The children born to another woman call me “Mama.” The magnitude of that tragedy and the depth of that privilege are not lost on me. I am thankful to my sons entire birth families and forever thankful for the privilege I have to be their mama. I often look at that them and pray for those families and that they somehow know how loved these babies are. If you are interested in adoption please ask me any questions! Not all are called to adop but we are all called to help the orphan. If you are interested in helping another family bring home a child let me know and I will let you know of families I know fundraising. and always pray for the orphans, pray for families in process of adoption, pray for children being adopted as they transition to their forever families!

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!
