A Holiday Surprise At Adoptions of Wisconsin
Over the holidays, Adoptions of Wisconsin received a wonderful surprise from a very thoughtful woman in Minnesota. Ms. Hansen heard about the babies being placed through AOW, and decided that she didn’t want them to be cold during this frigid winter. So she knit some of the most adorable hats that we’ve ever seen!
When We First Saw the Hats
When we saw the hats that she knit, we couldn’t believe how cute they were! And then we saw the intention cards she included, one for each child.
Wishes For Baby
I hope that you
I hope you aren’t afraid
I hope you love
I hope you get
I hope you laugh
I hope you never forget
I hope you ignore
I hope you become
I hope you respect
I hope you grow
In the poem, you’re invited to fill in your own intention next to each line, for example “I hope you respect”…”Yourself.” With or without your own thoughts though, the poem stands on its own.
The poem’s intentions are those we can wish for all children, as well as ourselves. We plan to carry them forward with us into the New Year and invite you to do the same. Thank you, Ms. Hansen, for inspiring us to share your kindness.
We’re looking forward to seeing warm and well-loved children in these cute hats.
