A silly but special gift

If you have kids, you probably know what I have on my wrist:

They're Silly Bands, of course. Why is a 47 year old woman wearing these with pride? Because her new little son in Ethiopia took them off of his own little wrist and put them on hers. Very sweet, because he had just gotten them not long before, and children in orphanages don't get very many things to call their own. I plan to wear them until he is in my arms again. With the slow down in processing of Ethiopian adoptions, I don't know when that will be... it makes me very sad and very anxious.
