Charming Adoption

So we are off to Guadalajara, Mexico with the in-laws for the next four days, and it inspired me to surf around this morning, trying to find gifts that perhaps could help Mexican Orphanages. While I wasn't able to find anything related to Mexico, I did come across this boutique site called Charming Adoption, which is a husband and wife team that makes very interesting jewerly that benefits Half The Sky, a foundation developed by Chinese and Western educators to enrich the lives and enhance the prospects for the babies and children still in China who are either waiting to be adopted or who will spend their childhood in orphanages. Having been in China last year, and hearing about all the baby girl's in orphanages, this is a great cause.

The necklaces and bracelets are truly unique and are a symbol of their "forever family" with their adopted daughter. Check out their story here.
