Many Hearts One Beat

 

Adoption Keepsakes Honoring All Who

Travel the Path of Adoption

 

Our Story

I am first and foremost the adoptive Mom to my beautiful son. I am secondly a self-employed graphic designer who wanted to offer special adoption gifts to those who journey the path of adoption. And what an amazing journey it is - one that transcends all others. My son is the single most wondrous gift I will ever know.

That being said, I will try to put into words my thought  process behind Many Hearts One Beat . . . My little man is my sole inspiration for this venture. I struggled to find specific adoption gifts and keepsakes to honor those who walked our journey with us - who we are forever connected to.  Many Hearts One Beat came to me one day as I watched my son playing with his trains and I was struck (as I often am) by the miracle of us finding each other, thousands of miles apart, from different countries and cultures. Yet, our lives have come together and we enjoy a bond and connection that is truly inexplicable. I ran through my mind all the incredible people we came in contact with over the course of the year, prior to and during the adoption process, who helped my son and I become a family: my friends, my family, coworkers, clients, my social worker, caseworker, attorney, translator, doctor, notaries, county clerk staff, consulate staff, embassy staff, local adoption coordinator, the INS, local, state and federal law enforcement officials, all those behind the scenes that I will never know, and most importantly, my son’s birth family and foster family. All these people, in some way, helped in our adoption journey -- all these many hearts who worked in unison so I could one day hold my son in my arms for the first time -- this is when these countless many hearts finally beat as one.

And so, that is my story. I am in hopes that one day Many Hearts One Beat™, via our adoption keepsakes, becomes a universal symbol of what can be accomplished when we all work together for the love of a child.

Be Well,

To all ...so many hearts are affected in so many different ways (from great joy to deep grief), on many levels, before and during the adoption process and continue to be evolve as time passes. To all the hearts all over the world, from the smallest town to the biggest city, that have in any way been affected by adoption, I honor your strength and your courage. I honor your heart.

 

"We are all from the same root, but the leaves are all different...all leaves are equal worth."
