Leaves of Love tree update time!
The package arrived! I was so excited, I opened up the tube without a single picture. And then I took all my pictures without a flash. Whoops. Nonetheless, I am thrilled to introduce you to our very own Leaves of Love tree.
Sigh. So pretty.
So full of promise.
See those two little green leaves?
Those are the prints of the wonderful designers who made our tree possible.
And the inks are just as pretty.
|all unwrapped and ready to ink!|
Our tree will serve many purposes. Certainly, it is a fundraising tree. But it is also a prayer tree, ready to be filled with verses for our child. And it is a reminder tree, for us, to remind us of God's love and promise, as this blogger so eloquently put it.
Ready to help our tree sprout? Here is how!
Option 1: "Leaf" a bible verse for our future child and we will add your name and the verse to a fingerprint on our empty tree! You can send me the notation either in a comment or by e-mail.
Option 2: Purchase your own Leaves of Love Tree and we will add a print to our tree, as a thanks and a prayer for your own fundraising efforts.
Option 3: Donate to our adoption. All money goes directly to bringing our baby home. Every little bit helps!
I can practically see our tree framed on the wall in our future child's room. A reminder of the love, the tears, the joy, and the work that went into getting this baby home. (Adoption brings a whole new meaning to "labor pains," doesn't it?!) This tree, overflowing with the fingerprints of family, friends, and blog readers, each accompanied by a name, a signature. This tree is going to take our breath away every time we walk past the room. Our child is going to be able to look up and see all the people who loved him or her even before he or she arrived home. Isn't that a beautiful thing?
