For Jazmyn

I finished up the bracelet last night that Debz won in my giveaway. I think it turned out very cute.

Here are a few pictures:

I realize it looks almost exactly like all of the other name bracelets I have made but for some reason this bracelet is special to me. I have a soft spot in my heart for older children, and for the people who adopt them. Jazmyn is 4 years old. Often children who are older have a hard time being adopted. There is a little part of me that hopes one day we will be able to take a leap of faith and adopt an older child. I know that we aren't in the right place to do that right now. But maybe one day.

Plus I love the name they chose too. So cute.

I put two charms on this bracelet. The first one is the Chinese symbol for love. Since Jazmyn is 4 and she speaks Chinese I wanted to include something from her native language. I added the little ladybug for Debz so that when Jazmyn gets older she can tell her stories of how ladybugs were a part of her story while her Mommy and Daddy waited for her.

I enjoyed making this bracelet so much Debz and I can't wait to see little Jazmyn wearing her bracelet!

I will try to get your package out to tomorrow.

Blaaa! Now I'm a mess! I haven't been around to many blogs over the last couple of weeks so I thought I'd scroll down the last few posts to see what is going on in your world and came to this post.....Michelle the bracelet is beautiful and so much more than a bracelet now after what you wrote. I will be printing off this post if you don't mind to put in her memory scrapbook. Thank you for your kind words. You are a blessing.
