Now up for sale by one of our Henan moms are these beautiful red thread bracelets...
"An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet,
regardless of time, place, or circumstance.
The thread may stretch or tangle, but will never break."
A popular sentiment in the adoption world, said to have originated from a Chinese proverb.
All profits from the sale of this bracelet is going to Henan Children International to help provide for children without families living in orphanages. (http://www.henankids.org) My daughter is from Nanyang City SWI in Henan, she now has a family but many left behind do not.
This bracelet is made of red satin cord and sterling silver beads.
Some of the knots I use are snake knots (said to bring good fortune), lotus knots (symbol of purity and fertility) and button knots.
Length is 7 inches if not otherwise specified, if you need larger or smaller please let me know. Best fit is to the snug side.
I'm planning on ordering at least one... makes a great gift for your little ones, yourself, someone who is waiting, or just someone you love...
These bracelets cost $20, with $10 going to HKI
Thank you so much Joann!!!!
