Marking occasions

"An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place or circumstances. The thread may stretch or tangle but will never break." proverb

Elizabeth, who is part part of our Suetables rep family, adopted their first daughter, Isabelle, through a local Halifax, Nova Scotia agency.

They were part of a group of six Nova Scotia couples who all adopted babies from the same Chinese orphanage. While traveling to China ten years ago, they were joined by two other couples from Alberta who were also adopting from the orphanage.

The day that they got to hug, hold and take home their child, the families call their ‘Gotcha Day’.

It’s a pretty big deal.

It's the day you get to begin your life with your daughter.

Through Facebook and emails they have all stayed in touch with one another. Each fall, the couples in NS try to get together and celebrate their ‘Gotcha anniversary’. Some of the girls live closer and see each other throughout the year, but for others, it is the only time they celebrate and hang out with the “babies” that shared their orphanage.

This year was extra special - ten years! One of the couples from Alberta even booked their tickets and flew out to celebrate. The last time they saw one another in person was when they landed back in Canada 10 years ago. They had seven cottages all booked in a row at one of the most beautiful places in Nova Scotia - a beautiful resort in Chester.

To mark the occasion, Elizabeth (our local Dartmouth rep) hand stamped these red Taylor friendship bracelets for the seven girls stamped with their 09.27.04 “gotcha date” on a sterling silver ‘Little Linton’ charm - a special keepsake for the girls to reminds them of the day they all met their forever families and each other.
