Shortly after Samantha’s first birthday I was to the point in the healing process where I felt the need to give back.  Dragonflies are a big part of my life, the healing process, and my way of knowing that things are going to be alright…our baby girl is just fine.  So I knew it had to be something dragonfly related.  Dragonflies have been my way of remaining hopeful, finding comfort, and finding strength.  So, I found a beautiful way to make beaded dragonflies and Samantha’s Dragonfly was born.  This is my way of passing along the blessing that I have received.  I donate the dragonflies to a few hospitals for their keepsake boxes, as well as anyone who requests one. I also include a very special poem that I wrote about dragonflies that we included with our first Christmas Letter the year that Samantha joined our family.  With each card we included a little silver dragonfly as well to share.  My project…Samantha’s Dragonfly.
