A Painting for Pearl

To honor the generous donors who support our adoption, I’m making a painting for our daughter’s room. Every person who donates — in any amount — can choose a flower, butterfly or leaf to be painted on the tree, as well as the color of it. You can also ask me to include your initials or a Bible verse or anything else that you feel is meaningful.

The resulting design will be somewhat similar to this picture, a flower-covered tree:

And it will hang in her room as a reminder of all the love and support that brought her here.

I’m preparing the canvas tonight and already have a couple of flowers to paint.

Won’t you add another?

(This is my twist on an idea I read in Adopt Without Debt , an excellent resource for adoptive parents!)
