“Having separate pieces allows viewers to position the babies to reflect their children’s individual personalities. The openness of the title and the sentiment, “Love in abundance” suggests twins, but the piece could also work for cousins, or a gift for grandparents of two grandchildren born at about the same time." –Susan Lordi
Child figures work well in Family Groupings. Position two (or three or more) figures so that they appear to be interacting, turned toward one another, touching. Like families do.

Description
Willow Tree sculptural art forms beautifully express love, closeness, healing, courage, hope… all the emotions of a life well lived. Artist Susan Lordi hand carves the original of each figure from her studio in Kansas City Missouri. Pieces are cast from her original carvings, and individually painted by hand. Expression is revealed through gestures only… a tilt of the head, placement of the hands, a turn of the body. The simplicity of form and absence of facial features signify Willow Tree. It is Susan’s hope that these pieces be meaningful to both giver and receiver.

    It was a little while ago that I saw the piece "Two Together" in a store and felt like getting it for my boyfriend as a gift. But, I hesitated because I didn't want to scare him off (it was twin babies). A baby figurine is kind of a girly gift anyway, I thought, so I held back. Somehow, though, I felt like getting them for him. After a while I stopped seeing them in stores much and wondered if they had been discontinued. Our relationship developed, and today I saw Two Together in a Hallmark store in my area. I wasn't letting them go this time! I will give them to him and hopefully eventually we will have real ones (and I hope he doesn't think baby figurines are too girly and get weirded out!) (keeps fingers crossed) :)

    My grandmother gave me my first Willow Tree as a gift, and I immediately fell in love with them. Since her passing 3 years ago, they mean even more to me now. I have a few pieces now, including Two Together, which I received as a baby shower gift when I had my twin boys. They have always meant a lot to me, since my shower was held when my boys, born at 24 weeks, were still in NICU and their fate was still very much unclear. Regardless of that, we all got together and celebrated them. I have always felt unbelievably blessed that they grew stronger every day and are now healthy, happy almost-7-year-olds, but when I came on here and read other peoples' stories, it absolutely touched me, and those two little figurines mean even MORE to me now. I will give my little miracles extra hugs and kisses today for all of you who can't.

    Our Willow Tree story started almost 3 years ago. My husband bought me the "Our Gift" figure on my first Mother's Day together with our beautiful son. He continued the tradition on Mother's Day 2 years later, gifting me with "Angel of Mine" to celebrate the Mother's Day after our beautiful daughter was born. Sadly, only a few weeks ago we lost identical twin boys at 20 weeks gestation. When I wanted to find something to honor their memory and place in our family, one of the first things I did was have a look at the Willow Tree collection. I knew it as soon as I saw it - Two Together. My husband and I went out and bought these figures, which we lovingly displayed on the display table at our boys' funeral. These figures then came home with us, where they have taken their place with the other two figures honoring our other children. Part of our family; always loved, cherished and never forgotten. Thank you Willow Tree for providing us with beautifully crafted pieces with which we are able to honor and celebrate the lives of all our children.
