Here is my JunkPosse necklace I had Tracy make for me! I love it!  Wear it

everyday!  When baby E is older I am going to give it to her!  I’m entering Amy’s “give away” to try and score a JunkPosse treasure for my sweet friend who has walked right beside me through our adoption journey.  She is the most giving, loving, AMAZING friend a girl could ever have!
