I’ve never seen this poem before but I read it on an other adoption blog & tears filled my eyes. I felt like I needed to share it too.
KISSES IN THE WIND (The Waiting Child’s Lullaby)
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 send to you each night.

This last weekend Clint, the dogs, and I headed up to Utah to do any other fundraiser to help us earn money to bring Isaac, Manny, and Rhoda home. Clint's grandparents own some farm land that they use for parking each year during Swiss Days. Every year the grandchildren get to work it to help raise money for things like missions or school. This year his grandparents let us park cars and put all the proceeds in our adoption fund. It was long days standing in the sun parking cars but it sure helped us get closer to bringing them home. Thanks to Clint's family who helped us put this together and stood out in sun all day with us! It was nice to spend time with everyone and share our excitement about having these kids join our family.
