Nine Months Old

Isabella,

Today you are nine months old. Happy birthday, baby girl! We miss you so much! It's hard to put the feeling into words today. We have a count down on the calendar, and it won't be long before we see you again! We're painting your room today, and it looks SO cute!

In honor of your nine month birthday, I'm re-posting a poem I originally posted for you back on September 4, 2007. We are faithfully praying for God to care for your tiny spirit. In church during one of the worship songs, a special thought came into my head. I could see you up on the stage singing worship songs to the Lord. I started to pray in my heart that God would give you a 'special song' and that you would love to sing and worship the Lord. That's my prayer for you today, too, on your nine month birthday... that God would give you a 'special song'. I can't wait to find out someday when you are bigger what that 'special song' is. I praise God for your life, Isabella! He has such exciting plans for you!!!

I love you,
Mom


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 is 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.
