Best Wish

Relationship: Child of im/migrant

This necklace represents the tight bond with my family. It has been with me my whole life. It was a gift from my mom for both me and my brother. The necklace symbolizes the happiness that we brought to her life the moment me and my brother were born. Our births were the turning points in her life, hence my brother and I are the best gifts that God gave to my mom. I come from a Christian family, so Christianity and religion have deep roots in me and my connection to my family. My mom is a devoted religious person, and believes that the necklaces represents God who would always be with me, would always take care of me, and protect me no matter where I am. It represents both my mom's and God's love, and as she told me, she and God would always be there for me.
