100 Wishes & Prayers

Kendra's family is awaiting a daughter from China. To help welcome her, Kendra has asked her Flickr friends to send charm squares with wishes or prayers for the baby girl she has yet to meet. I had never heard of this Chinese custom of making a 100 Wishes quilt (typically out of squares of clothing or scrap cloth collected from family and friends) and I think it is absolutely beautiful.

This is the charm I'm sending:

For Kendra's 100 wishes quilt

This little girl will have three big brothers to love her, keep her safe, and hopefully read her stories like this big brother bunny.

I wish that Kendra's daughter will have the self confidence to try new things, believe in herself and be positive. Three qualities that I most admire (and should work on myself!) in my own daughter.

Lovely thought! Our daughter, who we adopted in Peru when she was but 7 days old, is now 2 months away from graduating as a registered nurse at 21. We are so grateful for her and I wish Kendra and her family the very best!
