We cherish our HOME statue but for a uniquely different reason. We miscarried our baby at 10 weeks. We have two other Willow tree statues that represent our 3 children and it seemed strange not to have something to acknowledge our beautiful angel that we lost. This statue is perfection. There is a somberness that i see in the statue, a seriousness, an encompassing love between husband and wife and the beautiful life that they created. Though we will never physically see our baby in this life, this statue acknowledges her very real presence and her existence. She is amongst her brother and sisters on my bedroom dresser. I feel like this statue completes my collection representing my children. I look at it every day and smile because I think of my little angel. Thank you for bringing me such peace. Incidentally, I have purchased this statue on the occasion of friend's miscarriages as well. They have always welcomed it and treasure it almost with a sigh of joy that their profound loss is acknowledged in a physical way. Breathtaking!
I got it when I saw it in the shop located in Toronto,where I had been participated in an English teacher training program. I loved it because I felt the mood to wait for the baby,at once I was melted.At that time I was expecting to get married to start a family. I had found a guy to spend my rest life with, and I was dreaming of living with him legally and we would have our baby.
It's inpiring for Susan to hear how you feel about your Willow Tree piece. Your personal interpretation is so meaningful... thank you for taking the time to share it.
