These next quilt squares are from Marylou, a teacher I work with, and her two sons. When they were picking out the fabric she explained what is was for and tried to explain what adoption was. Apparently this sparked quite an interesting conversation, which involved getting out a globe to show them where Vietnam is and her youngest son declared that our plane ride home with her is probably going to be at least 3 hours long. Wouldn't that be nice?! Her older son is autistic, which is what inspired the poem that she included for Poppy's wish. If you have a chance, please take the time to read it (it should enlarge if you click on it), it one of the most special "wishes" we've received yet.
And Courtney has decided to start her own blog to journal her days of bedrest in the hospital, which you can catch up on by clicking here.
