A year and a half ago I came upon Midnight Orange from my fellow BLM circle and found her sculptures so very touching. I knew I wanted to order something from her....I just didn't know what exactly. Then she went in a hiatus from etsy for a while and I kept in touch with her and told her I wanted one some day. I just didn't know which one and when I would decide. She emailed me back and said that was okay--just let her know when I was ready.
When I brought home Owen I went through so many emotions with having him in my arms and loving him so much....yet missing Chase so badly. I had such a strong conflict in my heart and I thought of D Antonia and knew that this was the strongest emotion I had so far on this journey I am on and I wanted a piece to reflect this. I found her on facebook and started working with her. She sent me a couple links to see which one I connected with most and I was so touched. The emotion I felt when I saw what she created just poured out. D Antonia is so sweet and wonderful. I received her box last week and opened it to find this.
I put her on my collage box from Francesca to take this picture. I ordered the box from her a coupe weeks and it took my breath away when I opened it. Both pieces are so very dear to me. A reminder of these friends I have met because of Chase. And each tells a story to me. Of what I have endured. Where I came from and where I am headed. And I think it is all going to be okay. My broken heart has a beautiful bandaid on it. And I am forever grateful for this.
