I was reading an article recently in Adoptive Families magazine about a rocking chair. It talked about the significance of the chair in this family's nursery to their overall journey & now that their son was 4 & almost too old to be rocked, it brought a little sadness to them. It brought a tear to my eye as we have a chair in the nursery that has been a big part of the journey (even before Maddy's coming) and has played such a huge part in our daily routines. This chair was my dad's chair, it's not much to look at, but it comfortable & holds a lot of memories. There have been many tears shed in that chair before her coming & since Maddy has been home we have spent many hours in that chair rocking, reading, & cuddling.
Here is a picture of Maddy in that chair & also a chair that she got from her Great Grandma Julie (that she used as a little girl):
