giveaway - the r house couture

***this giveaway has been extended until weds aug 18th***
remember when i asked you what the perfect birthmother jewelry would look like to you? 
Jessa and i want to say thank you to those of you who shared your thoughts. 

as an extra special 'thank you' to: 

for sharing your emotions, inspirations and vision.... 

the r house couture would like to offer you 
$5 off your custom order 
to create YOUR perfect birthmother piece of jewelry!
(contact me for the special code and you ARE eligible to enter the giveaway)

the r house couture is an awesome shop run by three amazing women who have been forever changed by adoption. the shop is full of unique gifts centered around the emotions often involved in the journey of adoption, from all members of the triad. (although there are so many other applicable sentiments to their pieces, even if adoption is the furthest thing from your mind, you will want to peruse the creations they have listed). please check them out, i am confident you will find something you love. and if you dont, they specialize in custom creations and love to make ideas come to life!

now! on to the giveaway! 
I am beyond to thrilled to show you, for the first time EVER, the latest r house couture creation, 
inspired by non other than our very own amazing beautiful birth mothers and readers. 

i need a drum roll.....

from the comments, this is what we came up with: 

we tried to do something that tied together the entire adoption triad. this is what we thought: the ribbon charm represents being a birth mother and the birth mother's love just like you have on your site. the white pearl came from the white ribbon which represents adoption as a whole and the long charm with the initial at the bottom represents the child with their initial on it.

as an adoption mom, i love the white pearl on there. there are few people more precious than the birth mothers of my boys. there are few women i know who have sacrificed more. white just symbolizes something sacred ...and i needed to express that in this piece. ~mrs r

isn't it beautiful?!?!
we are so incredibly blessed to have the support and participation of the r house couture, 
and the love of these three women who endlessly advocate not only for adoption 
but for birth mothers everywhere. 
our (all birthmothers) adoption journeys would not be the same without them. 
believe me when i say that there is no way to measure what good has been done in the world today by mrs r, kimsuellen, and leisha

I love adoption because without it my daughter would not be sealed to an eternal family, she wouldn't have siblings near her age and she wouldn't have a good father in her life!

I love that adoption gave my birthdaughter the life I couldn't give her. And open adoption leaves the chance for no questions to go unanswered. I could go on because really I love adoption.

I love that adoption not only doubly blessed my son's life but it doubly blessed my life with friends I never would have met had it not been because I'm a birthmom and they are birthmoms too.
