I signed up for the Doll Quilt Swap and I had been looking forward to it for MONTHS. I was so upset when I had to drop out because of our adoption paperwork overwhelming me. I received a package in the mail today and thought what could this be? I opened it to find this quilt made by Angela Twee % cut to pieces! I just cried and cried when I read the card saying how she had wanted to still make this quilt for me....


It is her interpretation of of our adoption journey. The "Rescuers" is the name of the quilt and the 3 sailors are our 3 biological sons and Charlotte (our baby girl waiting for us in China) is the little girl on the lily pad. It is the most amazing thing I have EVER seen and it will always be treasured.


I started thinking...this is really the nicest thing anyone has ever done for me. What would I do without my Flickr friends? You guys have been the GREATEST! I can't wait to get back on here when things settle down.

    Well, with a story like that, I suppose even I can accept that should be yours and not mine - but you should still be thankful I don't know your address ;)

    Although partners are supposed to be secret, I did tell the mamas who Ang was making for and why, we were all crying like babies looking at this quilt and the three little boys out to rescue the girl. When you had to drop out (for the very best reasons) Ang was adamant she still wanted this quilt to come to you and she was right - it was made for you and couldn't go to anyone else. Good luck with the coming months. XXX

    I have chills reading this. I completely agree about the magical, loving community we have here. Amazing! Generosity, support, AND creative mojo. What else could you want in a pack of peeps? Good luck to you on your journey :-)
