This past Valentines Day I bought a beautiful adoption print from a seller on etsy. Etsy is a online store for people selling hand crafted items.
According to Chinese folklore, when a child is born they are connected by an invisible red thread to all who will care about them. As the child grows, the thread becomes shorter, drawing them ever closer to loved ones.
Although the picture is about Chinese folklore, I feel that it relates to all adoptions. We have placed it on a wall in our bedroom to remind us that the thread is getting shorter every day.
