Mine was a gift my son, (he was 7 at the time) when he gave it to me. We have 3 wonderful children that we adopted. We adopted our first son when he was 2 and he is now 9. We adopted our other son when he was 7, now 10, and our daughter when she was 2 (now 6).

The kids all made me gifts from school so when I opened the gift from my oldest son I was expecting a homemade gift. What I didn't expect is what it was. The kids had to write what the best gift they ever got was and my son wrote "My new family is my best gift". I will always treasure that gift.
