I decided when I started to research adoption that I would wear a red thread bracelet once we started our adoption process. I made a red beaded bracelet last fall which I wore everyday. Well, about three weeks ago it broke. So Friday I went to a new bead shop in our area and picked up somethings to make a new one. It is alot nicer than the last one. Here are some pictures of the new one. I really liked the beads with the words. I saw the "A" as I was leaving and decided to put it at one end of the bracelet. I figure it represents both of my children. I know it is kind of cheesy, but I have found that it makes me feel better to look down and see it on my wrist when I am having a bad day because of this crazy process.
