What a wonderful gift for him and the phrase you wrote is perfect for him. I Pray your aching heart heals soon. Maybe another special little one will come along to fill the void. God Bless...

The real gift you have given him "is your heart."

Whatever his path takes, I know that he will never forget you and will keep you in his thoughts and prayers forever. An one day will come back to you.

The quilt is absolutely beautiful. You are very talented. My heart goes out to you. I have been suggesting to my husband for years that we become foster parents-or even better adopt from foster care, but he does not believe it is the right choice for our family . Thank God there are people like you who truly care about these kids and are able to reach out in love.

Your quilt is beautiful and I know he will love it! I will be praying that he will come back to you too. That is not a bad thing to want. It must be very hard for both of you to have to let go. God will comfort and restore.

The first time he left I didn't know how to quilt so I took him to build a bear workshop where he chose to make Elmo. When he came back, he was only able to bring one thing with him and he came with a very well loved Elmo. I hope he loves this present just as much, and more than that I hope (please forgive me) that he comes back to me.
