Child of My Heart

Child of the world,
Into my heart you came —
Bringing sun into my life,
making family our name.

Thought I'd share one of my most favorite gifts this year from Leah (with help from Daddy) to my fellow adoptive moms...a new Willow Tree sculpture representing adoption. I just love how these figures symbolize the phases of your life--I had one previously given to me when I married Shawn that I still cherish.

These simple wood sculptures make wonderful, personal gifts and are so touching. It's a must have, in my humble opinion, for any adoptive mommy. Most corporate Hallmark's sell these figurines as well other sources online, including ebay, for around $20.

You'll love this as much as I do.

I love this figurine and have it myself. My hubby got it for me while we were waiting for Sarah. They are great to give as gifts!
