After far too many years of fertility testing and treatments and then becoming a mommy through adoption only 9 days before Mother's Day, my husband got me a necklace with a heart pendent. Inside that pendent is a mother holding her baby in her arms. I absolutely love this necklace and wear it every day.
Last June DD and I went on a shopping spree and visited 11 different stores. We were at the last and I went to touch my necklace and it wasn't there. I was devastated. I called those 11 stores again and again and again for weeks hoping against hope my necklace was found and returned. Then last Fall I was cleaning my car out and I found the pendent tucked underneath the back seat floor mat where it came up under the driver's seat. No chain, but the pendent...what really mattered to me. Bought it an extra strong chain and put it right back on!
