An adoption always has a story. Some of it is beautiful. Some of it is hard. Behind it all, there is always love. This Adoption Story Silver and Beaded Bracelet is a great way to remember that on the journey of adoption, there is love. Love for a birth mom who chose life, love for foster families who care, love for a child who, above all, deserves love, the love of a forever family. This bracelet comes with 5 sterling silver charms and colored glass beads, with each charm and bead representing a step in the journey of the adoption process (see text below).

The following story comes in the box: "Every adoption story begins with a thought, a seed planted in your heart to love a child and make them your own. The long green bead represents the beginning of your story, symbolizing the seedling in your heart. Moving along the bracelet, the 'Adopt Envelope' charm represents picking an agency and doing tons of paper work. Your seedling grows. Your heart aches. You hope. You dream. The blue bead and the 'Globe' charm represent the country you have chosen, whether it is across the deep blue sea or under the same blue sky. Your heart keeps growing in love as you wait for your referral. The series of red beads and the 'Heart' charm represent the red-letter day when you receive the referral! The 'Suitcase' charm and series of gold beads signify traveling to meet your child and your first golden days with them. The bracelet ends with a 'House' charm and more green beads that signify bringing your child home and growing together as a family. Throughout the bracelet you see white beads interspersed with small colored beads. The white beads represent the waiting, while the assortment of small colored beads represent the emotional ups and downs of growing, hoping, loving and waiting. Your bracelet can be customized by engraving any or all of the following: the name of your child's birth country on the back of the 'Globe' charm, their name on the back of the 'Heart' charm, and/or their Gotcha Date on the back of the 'House' charm."
