As an adoptive mom myself, that brought tears to my eyes. How sweet! People often say about our children, "They are so lucky to have you." and I always have to reply that I am the one that is lucky to have them. They are gifts straight from God!
Anyway......continuing on with this thread.
My daughter is very crafty and a couple of years ago (she was probably about 7), she made me a homemade Christmas gift. She knows I love camping and she made me a 3d camping scene out of paper, cardboard, q-tips, etc....anything she could find. There was a tent with a couple sleeping bags in it, a camp fire (made from red/orange pipe cleaners), logs for paper people to sit on, etc. It was sooo cute and so creative. I LOVED that gift because she did it with me in mind. She spent her time and effort into making something purely based on something I love.
