The other day I was shopping with a great friend and she said, "Did you see this!?" and showed me the cutest little "piggy" bank. It's PERFECT for us! The other day at work it showed up on my desk, it gave me a good chuckle. I went to move it and it had change in it. I went into her office to tell her thank you (it truly made my day) and she told me the story behind the money inside the bank.
Her 5 year-old daughter saw the bank and asked her what it was for. She explained that Jamie and I were adopting a baby and that adopting costs lots of money. Her daughter left the room and came back with her piggy bank. She told her mom that she didn't have any dollars, but she did have lots of quarters. So, our new "baby bank" is the recipient of her quarters. Isn't that the sweetest thing? It completely warmed my heart. The next time I saw my friend's daughter I gave her a big hug. I can't wait for the day she can help me feed our new little baby. What a sweet, thoughtful, generous girl!
