My dear sweet friend Kristi made this quilt for the birthmother of our babies. It is a prayer quilt that has knots tied into it representing specific prayers that were prayed for her. This quilt was passed around to several bible studies and approximately 30 women and children have laid hands on it and prayed specifically for her. Kristi had the pictures of our babies printed onto fabric and sewed them into the quilt. Two squares on this quilt are from the two quilts she also made for the twinettes. Can you think of anything more precious and loving to give this woman?
I am so overwhelmed again! I picture her being wrapped in this quilt and resting in the warmth of love and prayers that have gone in to it. We also bought her a pair of warm pj's, slippers and robe that match these colors. I had no idea what this quilt was going to look like until Kristi presented to me this week. As she explained all the intentional detail and labor of love that has gone into this I literally embraced her and melted into another basket of tears. We were both overcome with emotion, compassion, sadness and joy as we literally held each other and balled our eyes out.
Thank you to all of the ladies and children that participated in this amazing gift for our precious T. I can't wait to look her in the eyes, embrace her in my arms and wrap this quilt around her. There are no adequate words to express my gratitude for your thoughtfulness, generosity, compassion and love to this young woman in Ethiopia. May you all be richly blessed!
